U.S. Postal Service: Full-Service Intelligent Mail Fall Webinar Schedule


Effective January 26, 2014, the use of Full-Service Intelligent Mail is required to qualify for automation prices for First-Class Mail ® postcards, letters, and flats, Standard Mail ® letters and flats, Periodicals ® letters and flats and Bound Printed Matter ® flats.

The Postal Service is offering a series of webinars which are designed to assist mailers with participation in Full-Service Intelligent Mail.

Note from Interlink:  Most of what the USPS webinars cover is material for all types of mailers and classes of mail, where only a fraction of material applies to newspaper mail.  As such,  Interlink customers may find the Oct. 24 webinar on understanding the Business Customer Gateway to be of particular interest.

A Full-Service “Open-Line” call is scheduled for every Wednesday from 2:00 PM to 3:00 PM eastern time. USPS representatives will be online to answer any questions related to Full-Service Intelligent Mail.

Log on and Audio for the November webinars will be provided at a later date.

Please log on to RIBBS/Intelligent Mail Services/Education for complete information, updates and links to webinar recordings and presentations.
