-In the upper pane of the Print Daemon tab, click the check box next to your newly created printid. In the
lower pane, click the checkbox next to your XXU40 library (FSU40 in this example). This tells Aleph to look in the
XXU40 library for print files ending in ".ubarrive".

-Click the Activate button when you want to email the Arrival letter.
