Intelligent Mail Full-Service Guides

 

We updated three technical guides and added a new guide for customers who are implementing the Intelligent Mail full-service solution for their businesses. The guides indicate what functions will be supported in Intelligent Mail Release 1 on May 11 and support Mail.dat version 09.1. We encourage customers to use these guides at http://ribbs.usps.gov/files/fullserviceguides/ as they prepare for the transition.
