CMS Contribution - Can I Reuse or Reassign an Envelope Number to a Different Contributor?

PROBLEM:  I'd like to reuse some envelope numbers (member died or moved, or envelope number was simply assigned to the wrong person), but want to be sure the contributions stay with the original contributor.

SOLUTION:  Contributions are actually "attached" to an internal Person Number in the CMS Contribution System, NOT the Envelope Number.  So you can feel free to remove an envelope number, or reassign an envelope number to a contributor, as needed.  The contributions entered and posted will stay with the original contributor and will not move with the envelope number.
