How to setup an Every Door Direct Mail job using MailStream Plus

Products affected: MailStream Plus

Product Feature: EDDM

Operating System: All Platforms

 
In order to get Every Door Direct Mail (EDDM) rate you need to:
 
1 -  Mail to every address on the route. The MailStream Plus™ input file would need to have a record for every address on the zip code/carrier route you are mailing to. The file would need to be carrier route coded and in walk sequence.

2 - You would have to set the ALG CR to do a walk sequence carrier sort (W in position 12).

 
3 - You would also have to set the simplified address flag on the P ATTR card position 71 to 'Y"  and this will cause all carrier qualified piece to get the EDDM rates.

Please reger to the 
MailStream Plus™ Reference guide for detail information about these parameters.

As of MailStream Plus 8.3.3, the software does not validate that the file meets the USPS requirements for the EDDM, so you must know that you are mailing to all address on the route prior to running the job in MailStream Plus™.
