Hi guys,

The marketing group has come up with a new letter to be sent to members
when their articles have been published, to better encourage further
contributions from members, as well as to thank them for their effort. Can
it please be implemented ASAP as a replacement for the current reply, or
can you get back to us with any problems implementing it. Thanks.

The letter is available at
http://freezope2.nipltd.net/acorn/evolt/CombinedReply. Text follows:

hope you get as much from it as our members do. If you ever have questions,
