1.2.2

Electronic Data Exchange

Users participating in electronic data exchange with the US Postal Service should reference the
Post
al
Service Mail.dat Technical Specification

and
Postal Service Mail.XML Technical Specification for Postage
Payment and Reporting (eDoc)
.

1.2.2.1

Mail.dat

The changes in the following sections apply to customers participating in electronic data exchange using
Mail
.dat as a means of electronic submission:

1.2.2.1.1

Mail.dat Client Application

As a reminder, with this release it is required that mailers download the new Mail.dat client application. The
latest Mail.dat application is available for download from the Electronic
Data Exchange page, accessed from
the Business Customer Gateway.

The Mail.dat client comes with a Java Runtime Environment (JRE) that is packaged into the client for ease
of installation and use.


The Mail.dat client will be upgraded to include Java Runti
me Environment (JRE)
version 1.6.14 from the current version JRE 1.5.09
.

This will affect the ability for the
auto
-
update
functionality for Release 26 to work. Users must remove their previous installation and install the new client
manually. Users who modified their configuration to use alternate JREs should apply these changes again
after installing the new ve
rsion of the client.

Standard Mail

This section identifies changes to the Standard Mail Postage Statement due to the implementation of the
new Mail.dat 11
-
1 specification for the January 2011 price change.

St
andard Mail postage statements will continue to be generated for all Mail.dat 09
-
1 and 11
-
1
submissions with .seg Class Defining Preparation set to 3 (Standard Mail), .hdr Presentation Category
set to M (MLOCR) or P (Conventional Presort), .cpt Rate Type s
et to R (Regular) or N (Nonprofit), and
.csm Container Status set to P (Preliminary) or R (Ready to Pay)
.



Standard Parcel Type


Fulfillment Parcels and Marketing Parcels

The January 2011 price change supports new fields, MPU Standard Parcel Type and CPT S
tandard
Parcel Type, to distinguish between Fulfillment Parcels and Marketing Parcels. These fields will be
conditionally required when the .seg Principal Processing Category, MPU Mail Piece Unit


Processing
Category, and .cpt Component


Processing Cate
gory are set to IR (Irregular Parcels), MP (Machinable
Parcels), or NP (Nonmachinable Parcels) to indicate Marketing or Fulfillment Parcels. This field is
ignored (and the file not rejected) under all other mailings.

The MPU Standard Parcel Type and CPT S
tandard Parcel Type fields are not postage statement
generation variables. These two Parcel Types can be mixed within a single postage statement
.

Standard Mail parcel jobs will only be accepted for Mail.dat 11
-
1. Mail.dat 09
-
1 Standard Mail jobs with
pro
cessing categories for parcels are not supported.




Standard Flat Type


Flat or Catalog

The January 2011 price change supports new fields, MPU Standard Flat Type and CPT Standard Flat
Type, to distinguish between Flats (N = Not Catalog) and Catalogs (C =

Catalog). These fields will be
conditionally required when the .seg Principal Processing Category, MPU Mail Piece Unit


Processing
Category, and .cpt Component


Processing Category are set to FL (Flats). This field is ignored (and
the file not rejecte
d) under all other mailings.


The MPU Standard Flat Type is a postage statement generation variable. When the value is C =
Catalog
,

the processing category in th
e header of the postage statement shall be designated Catalog.
When the MPU Standard Mail Flat Type value is N = Not Catalog, the processing category in the
header of the postage statement shall be designated Flat. If a Mail.dat job contains both Flats an
d
Catalogs then the system generates at least two separate postage statements one with the header
processing category field marked Flat and another with the header processing category field marked
Catalog
.
