Please, help me understand how to build a sentence in an email to sound natural, clear, and polite. (I am not a native speaker of English.)
Description of the situation: I send a product inquiry to a company and got a reply with some technical details and the contact information of their distributor company. They ask me to contact the distributor for purchasing information. They also have copied the distributor's email address in this reply email (in "cc" field) so the distributor will know that I might be contacting them (and explicitely wrote me about this in the email).
My question: I assume that I shouldn't reproduce all the details they already should be aware of. (Please, correct me about this if I am wrong.) How in my email to the distributor, before asking for purchasing details should I refer to the fact that they already know the essence of the question from the received copy of vendor's reply to me?
I mean just the help on correct wording of the phrase. Something like:
..as you already know from the copy of the email from "X" company to me you received yesterday..
