    Re: British buisness letters

    I may be out-of-date with this but I still lay them out how I was taught to when I did secretarial skills and typing at school.

    My name and address, right justified, in the top right-hand corner.
    One line space.
    Recipient's name and address, left justified.
    One line space.
    Today's date.
    One line space.
    Dear Sir/Madam/Mr ...
    One line space
    Start letter.
