    No, but personally I would go with old fashioned registered post. Should you have to take a complaint further, just gives you a better evidence trail.

    And a letter is more likely to get to the correct department.


    Sending an e-mail will go to an inbox, that someone may or may not care about. A letter will have to go somewhere!

    In fact, it may well highlight the difference between using the different forms of communication.


    If you're willing to share the responses (Personal details removed, of course) to each different type of communication, it would be a great example to use when advising others.
