# Where to put “per fax/mail in advance” in scrlttr2?

If you send something with a formal/legaö letter, you may provide a copy via mail or fax or so before. If so, you usually change that copy to include something like this:

per fax followed by letter
per mail followed by letter

or:

If I style my letter with scrlttr2, where do I put that?

The receiver address field is bad to abuse and I only found the specialmail KOMA variable. However, this includes it at the top right of the address field and underlines it. I guess this is supposed to be used for something else. So could you please also explain to me, what I should use specialmail for?

### What I expect

As far as I have seen in most letters these words are printed after or – more often (and I would prefer that) – one or two lines before the receiver's address. The text is usually written -- surrounded by two or three hypens --.

So in the end, it may look like this:

-- per mail in advance --

• Welcome to TeX.SX! Please help us help you and add a minimal working example (MWE) that illustrates your problem. Reproducing the problem and finding out what the issue is will be much easier when we see compilable code, starting with \documentclass{...} and ending with \end{document}. Sep 1, 2020 at 2:58

If you do not use KOMA variable location yet, you can set this variable to

\setkomavar{location}{-{}- per mail in advance -{}-}


Then you can adjust the position of the location field to your needs, eg:

\setplength[-]{lochpos}{\useplength{toaddrhpos}}
\setplength[2]{locheight}{\baselineskip}


Example:

\documentclass{scrlttr2}

%% to show the position of fields address and location:

\usepackage{blindtext}% only for dummy text

\setkomavar{fromname}{rugk}
\setkomavar{location}{-{}- per mail in advance -{}-}

% change the position of the location field
