    You'll hear both used. If you're really worried that people may misinterpret it, then use the second, but both are fine for me.

    Welcome to the forum Paola.

    In future posts, feel free to simply say "Hello". "Dear XXX" is rather formal and you used "Sirs" - that only refers to men and I'm fairly sure you don't wish to exclude all the female volunteers here from replying to you!

    Remember to put a space after every full stop, question mark, comma and question mark.
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.

    Welcome from me, too, Paola.

    You don't even need to say 'Hello'. Just go ahead and ask your question.

    (You don't need to capitalise primary.)
