MyMail rates are updated by inserting a physical rate card and loading the new postal rates into the machine.
You may update your rates immediately upon receive your rate card. Rates are stored in your machine and will automatically activate on the effective date of the new rates (January 26, 2014).
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.
After you receive your rate card, you will apply the new rates to the machine.
If your rate update was successful, your equipment will activate the new rates on January 26, 2014. You can verify that the update was successful by checking your equipment’s rate table version number on or after January 26.
2013 Rate Table Version: 11.05
2014 Rate Table Version (new – effective 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).
After the effective date of the new postage rates (January 26, 2014), 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).
The USPS is renaming Express Mail to “Priority Mail Express”. If you print Express (overnight) delivery postage with your meter, you 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.)
