Could it be "wij hebben gisteren een brief van haar gekregen"?

What about mine, below?

"wij hebben gisteren van haar een brief gekregen" is false? It's the same sentence, but different word order. Is this acceptable or wrong?

I know in German you can change word order like this...can you in Dutch?

It's fine, but I would only use that order with an emphasis on van háár.

Is it incorrect to use the verb "ontvangen" in this sentence?
