The following should not be a separate parameter. If you put another 
\setupletter in front of it, it should work. Or just leave out the 
additional [] pairs.

--> \setupletter[opening=..., closing=..., signature=..., fromname=..., 
fromaddress=...,toname=...,toaddress=...]

I usually prefer to split it up:
\setupletter[opening.....]
\setupletter[fromname......]
\setupletter[toname.....]
