Thanks for offering this service!

I see from another post, the specific text is not required, so that answers one question.

The email that is easiest for me to use for sending assignments is not the same as my JavaRanch login email. Is that going to cause a problem?

Hmmm. What on my email identifies me to the PayPal account payment? Nothing. So, big oops there. I will resend using my listed JavaRanch account's email.

Do I list the assignment number after the email header, as in "[cattle drive] Assignment Java 1a" or just leave it "[cattle drive] Assignment"? Can there be anything inside the email besides the assignment?

Anticipating a bit: I just (a couple months ago) went through significant headaches converting from Galileo to Helios. Will it be necessary to upgrade to Orion, or optional?

Thanks,

Phil Freihofner

Oh, boy -- I'm so late to the party. Apologies!

> The email that is easiest for me to use for sending assignments is not the same as my JavaRanch login email. Is that going to cause a problem?

We basically check that the name of a recent payment pretty much matches yours -- if we're in doubt, we'll ask you to forward the receipt to us. I think that has happened all of once in the past handful or so years.

> Do I list the assignment number after the email header, as in "[cattle drive] Assignment Java 1a" or just leave it "[cattle drive] Assignment"?

Having the assignment number and the section of the drive is definitely preferable!

> Can there be anything inside the email besides the assignment?

Yepp. We receive additional questions, excuses, retorts, rhetorical questions, wise-cracks, nitpicks to our nitpicks, and corrections.

I'm not sure about the bit about orion -- I'll leave that to whoever ends up nitpicking you when you get that far.
