    Wow.. Moving forward at a terrific pace.. :-)

    I was wondering whether this latest version’s Aust Post module includes letters.

    It seems the 2 extentions I see out there are only for parcels, yet so much is sent out by shops as letters due to the very reduced costs.

    I hope so…

    Gteat job and kudos to all involved!!
