When you send  the shipping details to UPS, you can enter several email 
addresses which will be sent emails automatically from UPS's systems as the 
package travels through their system.  We would need a way to store this data 
into the system, and  the multiple 'addresses' per company seems the most 

I don't expect this to be added to the core system, of course.   It's more of 
an example of things besides Shipping + Billing that we'll need to store, and 
things that may not even have physical mailing addresses.

In the specific application I'm thinking of, for some customers that do a lot 
of mail order stuff, we set the Ship from address to  an RMA center(I think)  
that they maintain.  It's an address that is different from Billing and 

We don't do this, but it's conceivable that the ship from address can change 
based on where we ship the final package to, (ie, maybe several RMA Centers 
scattered about the country)
