Intelligent Mail® Services Weekly Update

PostalOne! We are preparing PostalOne! release 20 to support the price change on May 11 and the Test Environment for the Intelligent Mail Full-Service option on May 18. We are also redesigning the interface mailers use to access PostalOne! and the Facility Access Shipment Tracking (FAST) system. If you use PostalOne! or FAST, please logon between March 30 and April 14, so we can capture your profile information and migrate it to the new Business Customer Gateway. If you use both PostalOne! and FAST, logon to PostalOne! and we can capture your profile for both systems.

Address Correction. Mailers using the Full-Service option can retrieve change-of-address and nixie data by accessing reports online or via Mail.XML. Online reports are available in a comma-delimited (.csv) format through the Business Customer Gateway. With Mail.XML mailers can receive data on a regular basis or request it as needed. For more information, see the Full-Service Option User Access and Reports Guide and the PostalOne! Mail.XML Technical Specification Guide.

Intelligent Mail Tray Labels. Mailers can use the 24-digit Intelligent Mail tray label for the Full-Service option starting April 6. We encourage mailers to test and certify their labels before mailing. You can learn about the certification process in the Intelligent Mail Tray Label Certification Guide or call the Barcode Certification Help Desk at 1-877-264-9693.
