Issue

Why am I getting this error on the IMBOUT? The job is set up as Full Service, and 602 is a valid Full Service STID (Service Type IDentifierfor a Periodical mailing.   
 
ML TYP P F N 
IMBOUT 451 I                 C 600 602     M                        483
                                   ###        1002: Invalid Value IMBOUT in Position(s) 36-38
*---+----1----+----2----+----3----+----4----+----5----+----6----+----7----+----8

 
 

Cause

The job is missing the ALG PP parameter, and ALG PP position 10 defaults to B for Basic when not present. 
When the IMBOUT includes a Full Service value in position 36-38, this goes against the Basic value.
 

Resolution

UPDATED: April 12, 2017
The job needs to include the ALG PP with a F or Y for Full Service in position 10:
 
ALG PP   F
 
This position checks to validate the values of the STID to be valid for your class of mail and for Full Service or Basic. 
Intelligent Mail® Mode Letters and Flats Options:
Y or F Full Service: This is an Intelligent Mail® full service mailing. Verify that the STID indicates a full service-eligible mailpiece with nonautomation/basic STID, then change it to its corresponding full service STID.

N or B Basic: This is not an Intelligent Mail® full Service mailing. Verify that the mailpiece STID indicates a full service STID, then change it to non-automation/basic STID

blank Default is B.

(Note: if the job is really Basic IMb, then you leave IMBOUT position 36-38 blank)
