MTAC – Intelligent Mail Readiness

without comments

There will now be three phases of IT development in order to fully implement Intelligent Mail.  On May 2009, and initial release will support IMb benefits such as “Free” Address Correction and “Start the Clock” information, as well as Mail.dat 09-1 specification to support Intelligent Mail.  There will be two more phases in 2009, the first in September 09 and the other in Fall of 2009.  The Fall 09 release will support postage discounts for Full Service Intelligent Mail, and there will be a Fall release of Mail.dat, version 09-2.

The IT departments at the USPS and mailers will have their hands full with these schedules.  There is a lot of work and testing to be done in a very compressed amount of time.  It would have been impossible to implement all of the changes by next May.
