    through

    Hi,

    What does the second "through" mean in this sentence?


    Our message doesn't seem to have got through, we've no reply through it was sent several days ago.


    Does it mean "because"?

    P.S.: If the sentence sounds unnatural, please let me know.

    I think that second "through" should be "though". Could it be a typo? With "though", the sentence makes sense.

    Re: through

    It could definitely be a typo.
