Would like to know how to do things without having to buy more attachments. If you only have 2 or 3 letters or other to deal with each month, it is not cost effective to keep buying more extras that used to be free. Ex. Copying an email to Word exactly as it is or translating an attachment etc. Please stop changing things, it makes our lives more complicated. S.
