March DMM Update
Postal Explorer® (pe.usps.com) is your source for up-to-date mailing standards. The Domestic Mail Manual (DMM®) is fully searchable on Postal Explorer and features fly-out menus, cross-reference links, and an extensive subject index. On March 4 we updated our mailing standards to include the following changes:

We revised 503.11.0 to clarify the use and application of integrated retail systems labels and other unique, USPS-provided tracking labels for USPS Tracking/Delivery Confirmation service. We published this information in the February 21, 2013, Postal Bulletin.
Intelligent Mail Barcode on Periodicals, Flats and Letters
We revised 707.12.0, 13.0 and 14.0 to correct the omission of standards limiting automation discounts for Periodicals letters and flats to Intelligent Mail® barcodes only. We published this information in the February 7, 2013, Postal Bulletin.
