    Default responding to someone's regards

    If someone says: 'My mother says hello'
    are the following responses both correct? 'Say hi back to her'
    'Tell her I said hi back'

    Thank you.

    Thank you billmcd.
    Are there any other alternatives you would use in a situation like that?

    Another possibility,"Tell her 'thank you' and say 'hello' to her for me".

    Thank you very much.

    I think I'll stick to the first two since they're both acceptable (..and a lot shorter )
