Postal Explorer (pe.usps.com) is your source for up-to-date mailing standards. The Domestic Mail Manual is fully searchable on Explorer and features fly-out menus, cross-reference links, and an extensive subject index. Today we updated our mailing standards to capture the following changes:
We added new standards in 705.19.0 for the Postage Due Weight Averaging program. The program is for customers with a qualifying volume of postage due Merchandise Return Service and Bulk Parcel Return Service pieces, and it reduces verification time and provides a structured process for these mailpieces.
Optional 3-Digit Sort for First-Class Mail Parcels
Change-of-Address Orders for PO Box Customers
We revised 508.4.0 to allow customers with residential Fee Group E Post Office boxes to file individual change-of-address orders.
BPM and Parcel Select Mailing Fees
We revised 708.1.3 and 708.6.1.4 to restore content identifier number (CIN) codes for enhanced carrier route letters and rate level headings for Periodicals letters sorted to AADC and mixed AADC destinations.
We revised the labeling lists to reflect changes in mail processing operations.
Our next DMM update is scheduled for September 13.
