    I like the first version, Alsajy.

    By the way, you shouldn't refer to all forum members as "gents". We have a lot of talented women who write in here, and that term excludes them, which is insulting.

    At first, I'm so sorry about "Gents" I didn't know it's only for males.. sorry for all sisters here :)

    So could I know what I should say for females ?

    And many thanks for you Mr.owlman5 for your explain and help

    I agree with owlman.

    I would prefer 'in a reply to this email' rather than 'by a reply to this mail'. Alternatively, 'by replying to this email' works for me too.

    PS Also, the Forum would prefer to you use going to rather than gonna.

    Alsajy - the Forum does not deal with proofreading, so I will not comment on your sentence here. Do check your private messages though. Nat
