    Default Formal reply

    Hello everyone,

    This is my first post on ESL. :)

    I need help on these sentence. I am not sure if this is right or how to say this right.

    the question i was trying to answer is this:

    "Any updates on the nameserver change?"

    I need to formally answer this.. here's my reply "

    "[FONT='Calibri','sans-serif']I got a word from Ms. White to wait for Mr. Rafael to approve the design before we do migration."[/FONT]

    Is there a better way to say this? any help is greatly appreciated. thank you

    If Rafael is a last name and not a first name, I would say something like this:

    Ms. White asked me to wait for Mr. Rafael to approve the design before we do the migration.

    If Rafael is a first name, drop the Mr.

    I normally only use "got a word from" in casual speech and not in formal writing.
