MailStream Plus MSP error 1002: INVALID VALUE IMBOUT IN POSITION(S) 36-38


 

Issue

When error message appears in the MSRPRPT report for parameter IMBOUT what is required to fix the error?

The user believed the MailStream Plus
job was set up as Full Service, and that 301 was a valid STID (Service Type IDentifierfor a Intelligent Mail Package Barcode (IMpb) Parcel mailing. 

But it got this error-

Cause

The cause was 301 is not a valid Value for a 'parcel' IMpb STID

Resolution
