Try this with a copy and paste

Copy/paste worked. The free invites e-mail differs from the real thing in at least one way. The 3 or 6 option block at the bottom. By that I mean the real application of course calls for a name, password selection & if memory serves me an alternate e-mail location that may have been underscored with "optional" that looks like the one shown at the posts. The real free invites thing is automatic, upon initial registration. And automatic restoration of more invites, too. I was down to one, now I have 6. No form filling. :thumbsup:
