Answer:

Since it's been two months since you have submitted your paper, you should definitely send an email inquiry now. You can use this template to send your inquiry:

Dear Dr./ Mr./Ms. [Editor's Name],

I have submitted my manuscript titled [insert manuscript title] to your journal on January 10, 2017 and the status has remained "Editor assigned" since then. Since it has been two months since my submission, I was wondering if the status is not getting updated due to a techincal error. It would be great if you could let me know when I can expect the next status change.

Sincerely,

[Your Name]
