    Default comments from/by/of

    A project team gave you their comments and you are forwarding them to other people by email.

    "The following are the comments from/by/of the project team."

    Which of "from", "by", or "of" should be used? Are they all possible?

    Does that mean "from" and "by" are incorrect?

    They are not as natural as "of".
