    A little more context would help. Without the context, here is one guess (note that I am suggesting some of the changes so that your e-mail is not accidentally misconstrued to be argumentative).

    "I apologize for that. Shall I use MRF as the subject or a more specific word?

    Thanks in advance and best regards."

    If you want a slightly more informal tone, you could change the first sentence to "Sorry about that." It depends a bit on the relationship that you have with your boss and the type of language you tend to use with each other.

    If your boss is a native U.S. speaker, I would change Shall to Should.

    Please use correct capitalization at the beginning of sentences. Also note that you must always capitalize the personal pronoun I.

    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.
