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 June 23, 2019, we updated our mailing standards to include the following changes:

We published this information in the May 9, 2019, Postal Bulletin.
