    Dear All,

    The situation is one had failed to contact someone at a scheduled time due to timezone related issues.

    I would say 'Sorry for the misunderstanding' or 'Sorry about the confusion caused earlier'.

    I believe saying 'Sorry for the chaos' in the above context might not be appropriate. But how do I convince the listener that it is incorrect.

    Any help would be much appreciated.

    Re: Email

    If the failure to make contact actually caused chaos, then the sentence with "chaos" could be used. It would be more formal to apologise for the misunderstanding or the confusion.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
