It's no trouble at all. I am regularly checking the DL mailbox and there
has been no CD in there so far.
I just confirmed whether the mailing address I gave you was correct with
someone else working here and they said it looked right as well. Perhaps
the mail is taking a bit longer to arrive. I will keep checking, and I
am glad that you are asking about it, because then it will remind me to
to keep looking out for it in case I do forget to.

We will keep you informed about this,
Anupama
