Default testing out the new online estimator

Thanks to everyone who are helping me test out the new online estimator so far (if you want access to it, just let me know and I will set you up with an account.)

Justin just pointed out a problem with creating new jobs. I think it is working now.

Oh good.

Let me know how you find it's user ability and also the estimate template. You can create a fake customer and use your email in it to see what it looks like.

Ok the deal is, it sends email in both plain text and in html form. You can alter your email reader to read html or plain text.

It should work now and you can change the options on your email progam to view the message body in the different ways to see the different results.

Let me know what you come up with.
