MailStream Plus - PostalOne! (PO!) incorrectly giving error with Standard Mail Irregular Parcel mailing that P8 is the wrong value for CQT-1008 ("Rate Category")

Cause

Mail-dat 15-1  
PostalOne! (PO!) people originally said that the issue was P8 was the wrong value for CQT-1008.  But P8 was correct per the USPS Mail.dat Tech manual...

Finally, they sent this, that it was actually due to a PO! issue with MPU-1132:

Resolution

UPDATED: March 22, 2017
Temporarily, change MPU position 103 ("Standard Parcel Type" Field Code MPU-1132) to be an S so that PO! will accept the files until they make their change.  The customer that had this issue did that, and yes, PO! accepted the mailing's Mail.dat files.

The USPS said that PO! will be corrected in the March 2016 PO! update so-as to accept the F value that MailStream Plus is correctly putting there.
