MS Connect Suggestion: Bring Letter Writing Assistant Up To Date and Allow Emailing

Microsoft Dynamics GPBelinda Allen brought my attention to a suggestion on MS Connect asking that the Letter Writing Assistant be updated to allow debtors and creditors (customers and vendors to my US readers) be emailed directly from the Letter Writing Assistant based on the email address on the Primary Address.

I think this would be a very good feature to add. I’m sometimes reluctant to show people the Letter Writing Assistant due to having to print the letters rather than emailing them. I often end up showing them how to export a SmartList and use Word to mail merge and email the letters instead, but having the feature included would be far better.

Please vote for this suggestion here so we can get Microsoft to include this update.
