DMM Advisory 3/10/2005

March 10, 2005

New DMM to be released on March 20, 2005!

The Postal Service will release the redesigned Domestic Mail Manual (DMM) on March 20, 2005 at the National Postal Forum (NPF) in Nashville, TN. Now officially called, Mailing Standards of the United States Postal Service, Domestic Mail Manual, the new DMM replaces DMM 58 effective March 20.

The Postal Service worked closely with customers and employees to organize mailing standards in a way that is more intuitive to the user. The new DMM will increase userís ability to find information, increase confidence that they have found all the information they need, and reduce referencing out of sections. The mailing standards did not change with the redesign and restructuring of the DMM. What is new is the way the mailing standards are organized and presented.

We are offering the following four sessions on the new DMM at the NPF:

* Sunday, 10:30 AM, in Canal room E

* Monday, 10:45 AM, in Bayou room D

* Tuesday, 9:30 AM, in Canal room E

* Wednesday, 3:45 PM, in Canal room C/D

To learn more about the new DMM and enhancements to Postal Explorer, NPF attendees can visit the USPS consultation area and speak to experts one-on-one.

Plenty of DMMs and free Priority Mail flat-rate boxes will be on hand for NPF attendees to conveniently send a new DMM back to their home or office. And, as an added bonus, the first 2,250 customers will receive free complimentary $7.70 flat-rate Priority Mail postage provided by six PC postage and meter postage providers simply by visiting their booths in the exhibit hall.
