Advisory: Presort Object Participates in Seamless Acceptance

As you are probably aware, the USPS is starting to push for Mailers to use Seamless Acceptance. In order to participate in Seamless Acceptance, we have added three (3) new Properties and one (1) Data file to Presort Object.

The new Properties are:

PropertyDescription
POMLocaleKeyThis property will be required if you are producing Mail.dat files and is a 9-digit code based on your post office of mailing.
DDULocaleKeyThis property is a 9-digit code based on the DDU you are taking your mail to. It will only be used for Standard Flat ECRRT mailings that are dropped off at the DDU.
DDUPostalCodeThis property is the 9-digit zip code of the DDU post office. It will only be used for Standard Flat ECRRT mailings that are dropped off at the DDU.​

​​For example: Our post office in Rancho Santa Margarita has a Locale key of LOCZ22621.

The new data file is a Comma delimited file​ titled “LocaleKey.csv“. This new file contains a list of every post office and its associated Locale Key. This file will be updated monthly along with all the other presort data files.

The LocaleKey.csv includes the following fields:

Field NameDescriptionSample Data

PLEASE NOTE: If you do not want to implement these changes right away, do not run the setup.exe or update the DLL and just copy the data files over from the data folder.
