USPS removes Mail Facility ID

Post by Eric » Mon Aug 27, 2012 9:28 am

In the maildat.ini file, you can ignore the MAIL FACILITY ID= entry. The MAIL FACILITY ID= and CRID OF MAIL OWNER= are same thing.
The USPS got rid of MAIL FACILITY ID=.

The entries that matter are CRID of Mail Owner and CRID of Preparer, so when you have a Mail Facility ID number and a CRID number, make sure the CRID goes into the CRID OF PREPARER= and your Mail Facility ID number goes into MAIL FACILITY ID= or CRID OF MAIL OWNER=
