Sorry, 'Confused of Aquitaine' here (again). I always understood that the reason I get bombarded by unrequested e-mail from just about every supplier I've ever bought anything from - and a good many I never have, and never will - was that they cost nothing to send. So where did this invoice for £1,000 come from? If that's an hourly charge for someone's time, based on scanning a few pages, reading in an address list, and pressing 'Send', it's outrageous***. If it's a charge from our 'printers' (and stuffers of material into totally unsuitable envelopes for transit through 'traditional' mail) for producing the content they already have in an e-mailable format, it's equally outrageous. I understand (although have a limited amount of patience with) the point about lack of management will in current circumstances, but this should be a simple, cost-free initiative that someone (and this really is not a dig at you, Peter, because in my view you are far from deserving either shooting or sacking!) just needs to have the gumption to get on and implement. So what exactly is the problem?

*** More than happy to undertake this task on a regular basis without requesting a sou (or cent as we have to say now) - but that, of course, would involve getting a hard copy to me in less than a month from the issue date, which does currently seem to be a big 'ask'!
