    Cool Hi everybody, please inform me for proper usage of 'Do','Have' and 'Are'

    Hello everybody,

    Please inform me for proper usage of 'Do','Have & 'Are' in the following sentences.

    1) 'Are you received an email, which is sent by me'

    2) 'Have you received an email, which is sent by me'

    3) 'Do you received an email, which is sent by me'

    And also clarify me, when and which condition we are supposed to use 'Are','Have' and 'Do' in the sentences like as above.

    Your question is a general question.
    Regarding the sentences above, I should say none of them is correct. It's normal to say:
    "Have you received the email which was sent by me?" Or "Have you received the email which I sent you?"
    And about the use of "are", "do" and "have", I'd like to refer you to a grammar book / website. If you google it, you'll find a lot.
    But suffice to say:
    1) "To be" that is "am, is and are" can be a main verb or an auxiliary. E.g. They are drivers. / They are going to work.
    2) "Do" can be a main verb or an auxiliary. E.g. I do my homework every night. / Do you play the guitar?
    3) "Have" can be a main verb or an auxiliary. It is an auxiliary only in Present Perfect simple / continuous. E.g. I have a little dog. / Have you eaten lunch?

    I think that using which here indicates that other emails have been sent not just the email you sent. So, shouldn’t I use that instead of which to avoid confusion, please?

    I almost forgot this thread.
    Since I'm not sure about the answer to the question asked by Odessa Danwn, could a native teacher comment, please?

    Not necessarily.

    There is no difference between 'which' and 'that'.
    Please do not edit your question after it has received a response. Such editing can make the response hard for others to understand.
