    stand by my concerns

    Hi,
    Recently I've got an email form a client:
    I stand by my concerns, and write this email to you to explain the technical issues we are facing.

    What does he mean when writing down "I stand by my concerns"?
    Does he mean "I put my concerns aside" or "I am very concerned"?

    Thank you

    Hi Joseph, the client is saying that he is still concerned about the technical issues.

    I would use 'by' instead of 'when writing down'.

    Presumably, in a previous email, he detailed his concerns. He is now saying that he remains concerned about the same things.

    Note my changes above.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    He's not necessarily very concerned, but he has not changed his opinions and believes his concerns are still right.
