Product Affected:  MailStream Plus™
Product Feature: Parameters
Operating System: All Platforms
 
How do you resolve this MailStream Plus parameter error with the subkeyword IMBMLR?
 
These errors:
RP INF                     IMBMLR 123456789
                                  #                1002: Invalid Value Mailer ID in Position(s) 035
PA INF L                   IMBMLR 123456789
                                  #                1002: Invalid Value Mailer ID in Position(s) 035

MailStream Plus is throwing this error because the Mailer id is invalid.
 
All 9 byte Mailer ids start with the number '9'.  Above has the value ‘1’.  So this is not a true number given out by the USPS.
So please double check this value and make sure it was entered properly or ask for the correct Mailer ID from the person who is receiving this value from the USPS.

The subkeyword IMBMLR can be used with the RP INF, PA INF, BATINF or EP INF parameters.
