    Arrived at, arrived to, come to

    Hello!
    I'm not sure whether or not you can ever use 'arrive' with pronouns.
    Which of these sentences is correct?
    "Did the post arrive at you"
    "Did the post arrive to you"
    "Did the post come to you"

    Welcome to the forum, Quna.

    1 and 2 (if you had numbered them) are wrong.

    3 is possible but needs a question mark.

    Re: Arrived at, arrived to, come to

    "Did the post get to you?" or "Did the post reach you?" would be more natural (BrE).
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
