The USPS has changed the way that postal bar codes for multi-unit buildings are calculated. The following is a list of these changes:
- The USPS now calculates the postal bar code for most addresses in multi-unit buildings by using a formula that is based on the secondary number, such as an apartment number or a suite number. To calculate other postal bar codes, the USPS uses the last two numbers of the street address instead.
- The USPS now requires online verification of addresses before the USPS will qualify a business or an organization for a bulk mailing discount.
For more information about how to qualify for a bulk mailing discount, visit the following USPS Web site: Microsoft provides third-party contact information to help you find technical support.
