  • Your name is Yves, if you are a French speaker, note that in English we do not write spaces before question and exclamation marks, like you do in French. – Michael Harvey Jun 4 at 20:05

Is my sentence correct ?

Yes. You should capitalize April, however, and there should not be a space in 30th (nor should there be a space before the question mark in the question quoted above).

Can we infer that the message was received around 30th april

There is no basis for that inference. In fact, the contrary is a real possibility. For example, you might have waited patiently until November for the record before asking about it, in which case the message might have been received in November.

Again, April should be capitalized, and in this case you have omitted the question mark altogether.

  • i should write i received on 1st May a message informing me that the record was sent on 30th April or I received a message on 1st May informing me that the record had just been sent – Yves Lefol Jun 3 at 7:33
  • ...or you received a message on 1st May informing you that the record had been sent the previous day. – Michael Harvey Jun 3 at 17:24
