IMb Services Update

Reminder: Migrating to the IMb™ Webinars: In May 2011, eligibility for automation discounts in letter and flat mailings will require mailers to use an Intelligent Mail® barcode (IMb) on each mailpiece in Full-Service and Basic IM mailings, as the POSTNET™ barcode will no longer qualify for automation prices. To help in transitioning to the IMb, the Postal Service™ is conducting webinars entitled “Migrating to the IMb” between November 2010 and May 2011.

Reminder: Full-Service eDoc Verification Using MicroStrategy Webinars: will be held on Thursdays through December 16 (excluding November 25) from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. EST. These webinars are tailored to provide mailers with details on the eDoc Verification process and enhancements to the MicroStrategy Mail Data Quality reports to support the new eDoc evaluation process.

The webinar schedule and log on information for both webinars is posted on the RIBBS® website under Intelligent Mail Latest News .
