Child Postage Statement Issue: Some mailers have experienced delays in processing large volume electronic statements especially those that generate a large number of child statements. The Postal Service is aggressively pursuing a reengineering strategy for processing jobs that produce large numbers of child postage statements. This strategy focuses on continuing to provide the data required by mailers and the Postal Service without generating child statements.
Full-Service Intelligent Answers: We conduct weekly telecons entitled Full-Service Intelligent Answers. The calls continue this Friday from 1:00-2:00 p.m. EDT. These calls are for customers who are testing file submission in the Test Environment for Mailers (TEM) or for customers who have migrated to using Full-Service in production and have questions or are experiencing issues. Mailers can exchange information among themselves and postal experts are available to answer questions. If you are currently testing in TEM or have successfully completed the TEM process, but have not received an invitation to the calls, please contact the PostalOne! Help Desk at 1-800-522-9085.
