    I thought we wanted to avoid attachments, especially those of significant size.  (Is 600KB significant by today's standards?)  Attaching it to a NavList message was the way I used to do it.  Am I wrong in my recollection about attachments?

    Anyway, it turns out that you can access the file from the USPS web site using the link I have previously provided, without having to enter a USPS membership number or PIN.  (If you got in through the home page, you would have to enter this data.)  But the web site is usually (until a new version is released) for beta testers (whoever wants to be one) to access the program before it is released to the USPS web site.  Without going into exactly why I use RAR on the web site, suffice it to say that there was a reason, but if, as it seems, all free RAR extractors contain adware or worse, I will have to find another way.  One is under consideration right now, but it is not what I would have liked.

    RAR archives? Third-party extractor tools? Um... how about we just attach a copy to a NavList message?? Like so...
