Guest Posted January 19, 2007 Share Posted January 19, 2007 Hello Everyone, I'm sure most of you using this great contribution just got the same email I did about FedEx updating their system this weekend, but I figured I'd post it here so everyone is aware and will keep my fingers crossed that it does not affect us. Thanks again to all working on it as it is an amazing time saver.
