    Re: information

    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.

    Re: information

    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 - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: information

    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.)
