IMb™ Services Update

 

The Facility Access and Shipment Tracking (FAST®) and PostalOne!® Full Service Data Distribution systems will be upgrading to the latest IDEAlliance® Mail.XML® version 10.0 in June 2011.

 

Currently, the FAST system supports Mail.XML 6.0D and Mail.XML 8.0B. The FAST system will stop supporting Mail.XML 6.0D on October 28, 2011.

 

For Full Service Data Distribution, the USPS® currently supports Mail.XML 7.0C, 8.0B and Mail.XML 8.1. The PostalOne! system will stop supporting Mail.XML 7.0C and Mail.XML 8.0B versions on October 28, 2011, for the Full Service Data Distribution functionality.

 

The Mail.XML technical guides are currently being updated and will be posted on RIBBS® in mid-April.
