I think it is something like:


The relevant documentation is, I think, at page 55 here, but I still can't work it out: http://dl.contextgarden.net/modules/t-letter/doc/context/third/letter/correspondence.pdf

Since there has been no reply, you could try posting your question to the ConTeXt mailing list. Wolfgang Schuster, the author of the letter module, regularly reads the list. – Aditya Jul 19 '11 at 15:32

This is an ugly workaround to swap the opening and subject:

\setupletterstyle [opening]
        before={\blank[-4*line, force]},

\setupletterstyle [subject]
        before={\blank[2*line, force]},
