    It used to be translated " do rúk Pàna.." on envelopes,
    but now with e-mails sounds rather odd.
    What do you usually write on the e-mail subject ? : "pre Pàna ..."?

    is "do pozornosti Pana..." acceptable?, does it sound better than " do rùk Pàna.."?

    Važený p. Morior,
    if you are writing to a firm and the employee has not an individual address, do you write like that?
    (Usually the caption is written with (before) the subject, so that you do not have to open the file to know to whom it is addressed, an pass it on.

    Pokus o nasmerovanie dámy na správnu cestu obchodnej korešpondencie

    Vážená pani Mona Lisa,

    I am writing you to express my feelings about the style of writing a business correspondence. I think the first person to read the electronic correspondence usually has to view it firstly and then may click on "reenviar" to direct it to a specific person. So the e-mail doesn`t meet the criterion of "attention" used on an envelope. Then, it`s unnecessary to type the name of a specific person into a subject line when one can read it in the correspondence itself and then direct it to a proper person. Moreover, "attention" is used when the correspondence is very important and shouldn`t be read by any person but the one concerned. If I don`t know an e-mail address of the addressee and I want to send them a very important mail, I will ask that organization for their e-mail address or will send a postal mail using "attention / do vlastných rúk." ¿Me comprende? ;)

    Za pochopenie ďakujem a ostávam s pozdravom
