My dad wants me to order some books for him. I was going have them sent straight to him, instead of having them sent to me first. However, I know that supposedly awhile back if you had a book sent to a friend you could not RWAP if the sender sent a problem book.  Is this still true?  Am I just making stuff up? LOL  If I can't RWAP books sent to him, then I'll just have them sent to me first of course.

Not completely sure, but IIRC you are correct.  Only books mailed FIFO can be RWAP'd. 

In fact, the mail-to-a-friend feature doesn't show as incoming to your friend, it only appears on the senders home page.  When your friend receives the book, they let you know and the sender marks the book received.

Mail to an alternate address feature?  I've not used it yet, but from posted comments I do not believe RWAP's are possible with this option either.

Books sent to an alternate address can now be marked RWAP.  This was changed last year.

Excellent. Thanks Hunter! I'll definitely send the books straight to my dad then to save me having to pay more postage.
