    It is my honor to...

    Good evening! Would you be so kind as to tell me if it is acceptable to say: "It is my honor to have received your letter."?
    Thank you very much in advance!

    You can say it, but it is very formal. It would be more natural to say an honour rather than my honour,​ (BrE spelling).

    Thank you, Roman55! As a matter of fact, it was supposed to be very formal as it was an official letter addressed to an ambassador. I was told it was unacceptable so that`s why I`m asking.

    In that case it's fine, but use an honour.
