    Hello,

    Is the following sentence correct?:

    Re: serve for

    It sounds unnatural to me. What is the context?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: serve for

    "It serves for many things" is OK. For example a Swiss Army knife does that.
    But there's something missing in your version.
