Delete 'dated'' and capitalise 'Apr' to make the sentence correct.

(The date may be written in many other ways.)

Try to be clearer by saying, e.g., "sent by courier", "emailed" or "posted" instead of "sent."

Please click on Edit Post and capitalise the first letter of each sentence. Also note that you can write "OK" or "okay", so at the start of a sentence, you can use either "OK" or "Okay".

Also note that we do not start a question with "How to". Reword your question.

I did not understand what you say, We can not start a question with "How to"? and what can I use instead of "How to".
