    Smile At the last meeting OR In the last meeting...??

    I am writing an e-mail where I have to say something like this:

    "I am sending to all the team members the same document that you gave to all of us at the last team meeting."

    So, I am not sure if at the last meeting is correct, have I to write in the last meeting instead?

    My preference:
    "I am sending the document you gave us at the last team meeting to all the team members."

    I think that it is possible using during as well.

    Although I would use it in cases like these below:

    - During last meeting I understood that she was very up set.
    - I saw him writing a letter to her during last lesson.

    Though it is a consideration of a non native English.

    Hope that helps!
