    I can't agree that it's incorrect.

    It's certainly more formal -- and therefore more expected -- to say "informing you" than "letting you know."

    (I don't see "kindly" used often in business correspondence.)
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
