How to include 'Enclosure', 'Ride-Along', or 'Attachment' mail when doing a mailing in MailStream Plus

The main P ATTR(s) in a mailing is for the 'Host' piece, i.e. the main piece of mail.
On the main P ATTR position 68 is used to indicate that it is the Host piece.
If you are including an Enclosure or Ride-Along with the main piece, then you add a second P ATTR.


The second P ATTR must have the same Piece ID code (positions 14-22) as the host piece's P ATTR does.
The second P ATTR must have the dimensions (weight, thickness, etc) of the Enclosure or Ride-Along piece.  MailStream Plus will add them together to determine the combined thickness, weight, etc.
On the second P ATTR position 67 is used to indicate the class of a Periodicals enclosure
On the second P ATTR position 68 is used to indicate whether it is a Enclosure, or Ride-Along piece.
On the second P ATTR position 69 is used to indicate the Enclosure or Ride-Along mail piece type: Letter, Flat, Card, Double Postcard, or Repositionable Note.

FYI- Multiple enclosures and Ride-Alongs are allowed for the same host pieces.  Just add addtional P ATTR parameters for additional Enclosure or Ride-Along, putting the same code in 14-22 as the host piece.

For more information please refer to the MailStream Plus Reference Guide, which is available on the www.g1.com/support Web site.
