    Post "Sent for you"

    Dear all,

    Pardon me,
    Is it correct if in a sentence, I use of " sent for you" instead of "sent to you"?

    Regard

    Re: "Sent for you"

    It depends- did they receive what was sent, or did you send it instead of the person?

    Re: "Sent for you"

    e.g. In this Paragraph:



    My letters was written in Persian and English languages.

    Would you mind answering it?

    Maybe, you can't download photos from telegram, so it was sent to you with y-mail.
