    Re: Sentence formation

    There really aren't many ways you can put that sentence differently since the bulk of the sentence carries key information.


    Dear Sir or Madam,

    Please be informed, our iDirect Modem at Lagos Nigeria branch was shut down at 11:00am.

    Thank you.

    What is the customer supposed to do with this information?
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
