SPECIAL EDITION

MIGRATING TO THE IMb

WEEKLY WEBINARS OFFERED THROUGH EARLY OCTOBER

Beginning May 2011, to be eligible for automation discounts on your letter-size and flat-size mailpieces, you will need to start using the Intelligent Mail barcode in place of the POSTNET barcode. In May 2011, the POSTNET barcode will be ineligible for automation prices and the IMb must be used to claim automation prices with either the Full-Service or the Basic option.

Mailers have deposited more than 50 billion mailpieces with the IMb and the numbers keep increasing. Are you ready to come onboard?

To help you transition to the IMb, the Postal Service is conducting weekly webinars, “Migrating to the IMb.” These webinars will provide information on how to implement the IMb and how to use Intelligent Mail services for First-Class Mail, Standard Mail, Periodicals letters and flats, and Reply Mail. The next sessions are:

  • Sept. 17, noon to 1:30 p.m. (all times Eastern)
  • Sept. 23, noon to 1:30 p.m.
  • Sept. 28, 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.
  • Oct. 7, 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
  • Oct. 12, 2:30 p.m. to 4 p.m.

There are 500 “seats” — or ports — available for each of these online sessions. For more information, please go to the RIBBS website at http://ribbs.usps.gov.
