On the bottom of the Addresses tab of an individual or organization constituent record, the Hide addresses that do not receive mail checkbox hides all non-mailing addresses if marked. This includes constituent and spouse addresses that have the Send mail to this address checkbox unmarked on the Address tab of the Address screen, addresses that have a date in the Date to field in the Valid Dates frame of the Address screen that is less than the current date, or a date in the Date from field that is greater than the current date.

When you mark the Hide addresses that do not receive mail checkbox, all spouse alternate addresses disappear because The Raiser's Edge address processing will not send mail to that address.

The Hide addresses that do not receive mail checkbox affects all your constituent records. For example, if you mark the Hide addresses that do not receive mail checkbox on the Addresses tab of Robert Hernandez's constituent record, this checkbox is marked on the Addresses tab of all your constituent records, both individual and organization.
