I have this letter template, I found online.




\namefrom{James Bond}

\addrfrom{Privet Drive}

\addrto{XYZ Inc.}

\greetto{To Whom It May Concern,}



For some reason, I cannot get the \namefrom and \closeline to left indent. It keeps positioning on the right. I tried \flushright and \flushleft

What do you mean left indent? Do you mean left align? That is, you want \namefrom and \closeline to be aligned to the left of the page? – Seamus Mar 10 '11 at 18:54
Yes, I mean left align. – y2p Mar 10 '11 at 19:09
