  • It is required if you want to email the supplier and make use of the email supplier statement function.

    Some Internet software and/or service providers do not accept special characters in the "To" name or email address.  If you find some email function does not work, check the Aspect Property Manager "Address To" field and the email address.  For example, Outlook Express will accept "Mary & John Jones" but Outlook will not.   To test for this type of problem temporarily replace the name and email address fields with entries you know work, preferably your own, and try them.
