Good morning one and all. I frequently receive emails acknowledging receipt of work done that read "Well received". To my mind, this is not the right expression in the circumstances. As I see it, 'well received' can only be used for abstracts such as speech, performance, apology, etc. For example, "the Queen's homage to the Irish who fell in the 'troubles' and both World Wars was well received." I don't see that it can be applied to a physical object such as work, a parcel, a letter, etc. For those, I have been mulling over "received well", although it doesn't sound right and I'm not certain that it even exists. The correct text would be to acknowledge receipt, but that's rather formal. "Received OK" might fit the bill here. I would be interested in hearing views from other native BE speakers and also whether there are any differences with AE in this context. Have nice day!
