    letter on behalf of someone

    Hello, I have a question in regard to letter writing. I was asked to write a letter on my boss' behalf, which I have done. My question is how do I sign it? If my boss is planning on signing the letter do I leave my name off or do I still put p.p. in front of my name and above my boss' name, as I am the one who wrote the letter? or is that only appropriate if he is not going to sign it?

    If your boss is going to sign it, leave your name off.

    Re: letter on behalf of someone

    You only put "pp" if you are signing it on someone else's behalf.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
