    using the word were and mailed

    I am not a teacher... I'm trying to send an email and I'm not sure if my grammer is correct on my sentence below. Can you please tell me if my sentence make sense to you.

    The January 2009 Invoices in the amount of $15,000 were mailed out by mistake in error to your location.

    Yes, it makes sense. You might try: We mailed you the January, 2009, invoices for $15,000 by mistake.

    This means that you sent more than one bill to this person. If you only sent one January bill to this person, then say invoice.

    I am not a teacher, though I'm about to embark upon a course which hopefully, will see me qualified as a professional accredited Proof-reader quite soon.

    May I reconstruct your sentence, please?

    The January 2009 invoices for the amount of $15,000, were mailed to you in error."

    That is sufficient.

    Thank you for your question.
