Are there any other expressions to say "We were informed that - " when you write a business email? I would like to know a expression more like native speakers.

It really depends on the context. If you wanted to be very formal (perhaps even hostile), you could use:

It has come to our attention that...


A more neutral alternative could be:

We have recently learned that...

  • Many thanks for your answer. The context that i'm most likely to use in business scene is like "We were told that , "we were heard that ". I guess that "It has come to our attention that" will suit in the context. – japanese Sep 14 '16 at 8:30
  • By context, I meant the content of the letter - esp.the parts of what has come to your attention, and what do you want to do about it. – michael.hor257k Sep 14 '16 at 11:00
