I am wondering if using "I concur" in a formal context is OK. I am writing a formal email; I want to use I concur, at the same time don't want to sound ghetto. Maybe I shouldn't bother and use I wholeheartedly agree instead. I still want to learn if it is OK to use "concur" in a professional email.

Concur and agree essentially mean the same, but the former is more formal. Make your choice accordingly.
