The May 31, 2015 USPS Rate Updates are NOT yet available.

We will email customers when rate updates are available. We're working as quickly as possible after extremely short notice.

These instructions apply to major First-Class Mail rate updates. The USPS occasionally issues minor rate changes that may have different rate update instructions.

IMPORTANT! New First Class Letter Rate of $0.485 (3 decimals)

MyMail MAXEffective May 31, 2015, the rate for First Class 1oz letters rises a half-cent from $0.48 to $0.485.

What you need to know…

After you update your MyMail rates, the machine will print $0.485 (3 decimals) on your envelope (see example below), but the MyMail display screen will show $0.48 (2 decimals) because it was not designed to accommodate three decimals.

When to Update Your Rates

When FP makes the rate update available to customers, you may install your rate card, even if it’s prior to the USPS effective date. Rates are stored in your machine and will automatically activate on the effective date of the new rates.

Obtaining a Rate Card to Update Rates

If you subscribe to RateGuard, FP will automatically send you a new rate card prior to the rate change effective date.

If you do not have RateGuard, you must order a rate card. See How to Order Rate Update Cards & Chips.

How to Update Rates

After you receive your rate card, you will apply the new rates to the machine.

Verify the Update

If your rate update was successful, your equipment will activate the new rates on the effective date. You can verify that the update was successful by checking your equipment’s rate table version number on or after the effective date.


  • May 31, 2015 – forthcoming

  • January 26, 2014 – 12.01

To verify that your new rates have been successfully applied, follow the instructions in MyMail Addendum to Operators Manual (PDF).

Memories & Shortcuts

After the effective date of the new postage rates, you may need to manually update any programmed memories to the new rates. The memories will not automatically update.

For instructions on updating memories on MyMail, download MyMail Addendum to Operators Manual (PDF).

Express Mail Endorsement

On January 26, 2014 the USPS renamed Express Mail to “Priority Mail Express”. If you print Express (overnight) delivery postage with your meter, you may need to update the meter to the new wording. (If you do not use Express Mail, this does not apply. See Express Mail Endorsement Update for instructions.)
