    • DDUPostalCode - This 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.
  • The new data file is a Comma delimited file titled LocaleKey.csv. This new file will contain 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.

  • Build Compilation:
