What is the difference between menerima and mendapat?

menerima is more like "received" mendapat is more like "got"

And how do those two differ in English?

When pulling down the menu to look for suggestions of "receives" both menerima AND mendapat were shown. What is the difference?

"Ia menerima surat milik Tini" isn't accepted. Am I missing a subtlety about 'dia/ia', or 'milik'?
