    Once you confirmed

    Once you confirmed, will send the signed letter through courier at your Chandigarh office address.I understand, Once you confirmed is passive voice. Am I correct? Also please let me know how can I write the same in active voice

    Re: Once you confirmed

    It means " Once you confirmed" is wrong? Or we can use in colloquial English.

    Re: Once you confirmed

    Once you confirmed what? "Confirm" is transitive.

    You sent a letter by post or by courier (service) to someone's office.
    You don't send a letter 'at' someone's office - wrong preposition.

    I would not use the past tense to refer to the future, but I am not a teacher.

    Re: Once you confirmed

    Who is confirming and who is sending the letter? Are you telling someone else what to do or are you saying what you will do?

    Try writing it with subjects so we can understand what you are trying to say.
