There are three send methods: Print, Email Text and Email HTML. Print
and Email HTML use the normal invoice or statement defined. Email text
uses the text invoice or statement defined (hint, you define invoices and
statements in the billing groups).

Your customers are used to a statement, just called an invoice. If its
a semantics issue, replace the word statement with invoice. The invoices
will NOT have payments, previous balances, etc.

Because the statement shows all activity on the account (ie payments
received, aging, etc). Whether you send statements or not, you still
must create them.

Statements can be ran daily right after invoices for those using
anniversary billing. As I mentioned before, you don't have to send
statements, but you MUST create them. There are a lot of pieces
in Emerald that rely on the statements.

4.5 does have fixes that are being rolled into 4.2.2. The 4.2.2 patch
is being worked on.
