Office equipment is generally powered on 24 hours a day, so power management features
are important for saving energy and reducing air pollution.
Your Mailing System is an Energy Star® qualified Mailing System that automatically goes
into a low-power 'Sleep' mode after a period of inactivity.
Spending a large portion of time in low-power mode not only saves energy but helps your
equipment run cooler and last longer.
Sleep Mode
You can also turn the Mailing System to Sleep mode manually.
To change the period of time after which the Mailing System
switches to 'Sleep' mode, see How to Change System Time-Outs
on page 212.

These preperation steps allow to run your mail more efficiently.
This section also describes how to use the Mailing System automatic feeder (Using the
Feeder on page 40).
Sorting Mail by Type and Task
To save time, sort your mail in groups that have similar characteristics.
This will prevent you from changing stamp settings too often, and allow you to fully benefit
from the automatic features of your Mailing System, particularly Differential Weighing or
Dynamic scale options that allow you to process mail much quicker.
Follow the steps below to sort your mail into different stacks.
33
Processing Mail
It involves:
• Sorting mail by type and task, to make processing faster (Sorting Mail by Type and
Task on page 33)
• Logging into the system to start a work session (Turning On Your System and
Starting a Work Session on page 35)
• Selecting the Type of stamp that matches each mail batch (Selecting the Type of
Stamp on page 38)
• Checking additional issues concerning your Mailing System: ink level, funds...
(Frequently Asked Questions on page 39).

•
Differential Weighing
(optional)
This mode speeds up the weighing process and increases your efficiency: all the
mail pieces are stacked together on the Weighing Platform. Remove the pieces one
by one and put them into the mail path. The Mailing System calculates the postage
and prints the mail piece automatically.
You can leave all the mail pieces in a tray on the Weighing Platform: the Mailing
System will ask you to confirm printing for the last item removed (from the tray).
•
Differential Weighing Automatic Label
(optional)
This mode is identical to Differential Weighing except that the system automatically
prints the postage on labels.
•
Dynamic Weighing
In this mode, you place all the items at the Feeder Entrance whatever their size
(within the system limits). The system automatically assesses the weight and size of
each item and applies postage as each piece goes along the mail path at high speed.
•
Dynamic Weighing Batch Mode
In this mode, you place a stack of identical items at the Feeder Entrance. The system
assesses the weight and size of the first item and applies the same postage to all
items at very high speed.

Overview
The Postal Security Device (PSD) — Postage Meter
The PSD, located in the base, handles the funds (or money) in your Mailing System.
The PSD performs all necessary operations to comply with the postal standards. To do so,
regular connections to the Postal Services are necessary.
Managing Funds
As a user, you can carry out the following operations dealing with funds in your Mailing
System:
• Check the available funds in the PSD
• Add funds to the PSD.
The funding operations trigger a connection of the Mailing System to Postal Services through
the telephone line or internet connection.
Tracking Funds
You can generate reports on the use of your postage funds as all Mailing operations involving
your postage are recorded by the Mailing System.
To generate reports, see Reports on page 155.
111
Money Operations
Check that your Mailing System is connected to a telephone line
or network (see Connections on page 22) and that the connection
is properly configured (see Connection Settings on page 234).

5.1
Accounting and Assigning
Rights Overview
Postage Tracking and Access Control
Your Mailing System allows you to track postage by account/department and to add security
to prevent unauthorized use of a variety of functions.
• Track postage expenditures: the Accounts function
• Control user access with PIN code to the machine: the Access Control function.
Postage tracking can be done using your Mailing system, on line, or with MAS PC software.
The Accounts Function
Activating the Accounts Function in the Mailing System is a convenient way to monitor,
track and control postage expenses by, for example, associating accounts to departments
in your organization (Marketing, Sales, etc.) or to different companies, if the Mailing System
is shared.
When the Accounts Function is activated, the currently selected account is charged each
time the user applies postage to mail.
Reports can be generated for each account, or groups and subgroups of accounts,
depending on how the supervisor has set up their structure. For more information see
Reports on page 155).
119
Managing Accounts and Assigning Rights
You can activate these two functions independently. If both are activated, the user will login
with a secure PIN code and only have access to assigned accounts. If connected to MAS
advanced postal expense management software, postal expenses and system usage can
be tracked at the user level.
5
| Page 120 | jul-08-2013 06:34 |
Accounts from the User's Perspective
If the Accounts Function is activated, users of the Mailing System must select an account
when starting their work session.
Afterwards, users can change accounts to allocate postal expenditures as needed.
To control the use of funds, each account can be allocated a budget
that cannot be overrun. This optional feature is described in the
Advanced Reporting User Guide.
5
The Access Control Function
Managing Accounts and Assigning Rights
As supervisor, you can set the Mailing System to ask for a PIN code when a user wakes
the machine up to start a session.
This allows you to protect the system and restrict the usage of your funds.
The different access control policies you can implement as the supervisor are:
• No PIN code: unlimited access
• Shared System PIN Code: users enter a PIN code to access the system
• Operator PIN codes: users enter their own PIN code to access the machine.
In this last mode, the operators use only the accounts you allow them to access to.

corresponding data.
For the Reports service, the Mailing System automatically connects at the end of each
month to upload accounting and postal category statistics.
Online Services
For the eConfirmation service, your Mailing System automatically connects at night if you

eConfirmation Services
Service Overview
With E-Confirmation Services, your mailing machine can capture and process USPS
Delivery Confirmation, Signature Confirmation, and Certified Mail tracking label
numbers.
After upload to the Online Server, simply log on your Online Services Web account to
monitor all of your USPS Confirmation Service delivery tracking records at a glance, or in
detail, in one convenient location.
7
In addition to online tracking, you can activate and receive e-mail status updates for your
tracked parcels.
You will realize postage savings on your tracked parcels because the Postal Service
provides a discount on its retail Delivery and Signature Confirmation fees when parcel
tracking data is uploaded electronically to the Postal Server. The special rate is identified
as eConfirmation on your Mailing System and in these instructions.
Online Services
To be eligible for Postal Service discounts on Delivery Confirmation
and Signature Confirmation services, you must use e-identified
tracking labels that are only available from Customer Service. Any
other label will cause an input error message. Your Mailing System
cannot process confirmation service tracking labels obtained from
a Post Office retail counter.
The 'e' in the upper left corner of the label expedites processing
and indicates the discount to the letter carrier.
eDelivery Confirmation
You receive an email with the date and time of the delivery. The dates and times of any
unsuccessful deliveries are also noted. eDelivery Confirmation is available with First Class,
Priority, or Package Service (including Parcel Post, Media Mail, etc.).
192
| Page 193 | jul-08-2013 06:34 |
eSignature Confirmation
You receive an email with the date and time of the delivery and the name of the person
who signed for the parcel. You can obtain a copy of the proof-of-delivery signature via FAX
or email from the USPS. The dates and times of any unsuccessful deliveries are also noted.
eSignature Confirmation is available with First Class, Priority, or Package Service (including
Parcel Post, Media Mail, etc.).
eCertified Mail
You receive an email with the date and time of the delivery. The recipient’s signature is
obtained upon delivery and a record is maintained by the USPS. This service is typically
used for letters rather than parcels.
In order to use the eConfirmation services, you must have a Weighing Platform connected
to your Mailing System.
7
e-Confirmation Service Customer Profile
The possible notifications are:
• Email Daily Report to the email address of the person who is to receive a daily
summary status for the eConfirmation tracking records uploaded the previous day
• Email Notifications to the email address of the person who is to receive email
notifications about the following events:
- When sent
- When delivered
- When not received (within N days).
The notification settings are initially set to OFF. They will need to be set up in order to
activate the e-mail notification services.
193
Online Services
If you have purchased the E-Confirmation Edition with USPS tracking, on the Online Services
web page, you can activate and define your e-mail notifications, as well as enter and
maintain e-mail addresses for the notifications.
| Page 194 | jul-08-2013 06:34 |
How e-Confirmation Service Works
You can track mail delivery through the Online Services server because the server is in
constant communication with the USPS. The diagram below shows how tracking information
flows from your mailroom, through the Online Services server and on to the USPS, and
then back to you.
7
Online Services
The Process in your Mailroom
1.
Apply a tracking label (supplied by your Customer Service) to your mail.
For information about ordering new labels, please contact your Customer Service.
2.
Select the appropriate rate and e-Confirmation service on your machine display.
3.
Apply the metered postage to your mail.
4.
Deposit your mail with the USPS (e-Confirmation does not require additional special
paper work, as do retail mail confirmations).
5.
Upload your daily mailing information to the Online Services Server.
This function is performed everyday via an automatic call during the night.
6.
194
Receive USPS updates about your mail’s delivery status via emails from the Online
Services server. You can also check the status of your mail on the web by logging on
to the Online Services Web page.
| Page 195 | jul-08-2013 06:34 |
Getting e-Confirmation Status Data
Mailing status information is available in two ways:
• Via your Online Services web page
• Via emails sent by the Online Services server.
You can log on to your Online Services web page with a password 24 hours a day, 7 days
a week.
Email notifications arrive when a change in your mail status occurs at USPS.
Processing e-Confirmation Items Using your Weighing
Platform
If you plan to use the eConfirmation service frequently, the use of a handheld scanner to
scan the tracking labels is recommended. The handheld scanner option is compatible with
the use of a weighing platform.
Online Services
For information about the optional scanner, please contact your Customer Service
representative.
7
195
| Page 196 | jul-08-2013 06:34 |
How to Process eConfirmation Items using the WP
The weighing platform must be connected to your mailing machine. Using your
weighing platform to send a package and request eConfirmation service is simple:
1.
Place the eConfirmation label on the package.
2.
Place your package on the WP.
(If needed, first remove all items from the WP and rezero your weighing platform: see
How to Zero the Weighing Platform on page 217).
3.
Select the rate corresponding to the package to send (see How to Select a Rate on
page 73).
If the rate requires a zip code to be entered, a specific screen is displayed to capture
the Zip code.
7
4.
Add an eConfirmation service.
In the eConfirmation screen, check the PIC number (tracking number) or scan it. The
machine automatically suggests the next PIC number.
Online Services
If the displayed PIC number does not match your label, use the [C] key to clear
numbers (right to left), then enter the correct PIC number.
Use the labels in order to avoid typing the full PIC number each
time. If you have a scanner, scan the PIC number - this is fast,
easy, and reliable.
5.
Enter or modify the Sender ID information on the SenderID screen. This sender ID
will enable you to easily identify the package record in an email notification or on the
tracking web site. The Sender ID can be up to 31 characters. This is an optional step.
6.
Validate the rate and return to the home screen.
7.
Press
to print a tape, or place the item on the hopper.
When printing is done, an eConfirmation record is created (see How to Display eConf
Record List and Details on page 197) below.
If printing is cancelled at this stage, the current PIC number cannot
be re-used for another mail piece.

Maintaining the Ink Cartridge
About the Ink Cartridge
The ink cartridge for printing is located in the Mailing System and contains fluorescent red
ink that has been tested and approved by the postal service.
The ink cartridge uses ink jet technology. It requires the print head nozzles to be cleaned
regularly to provide a good printing quality. The system performs cleaning automatically or
on your request. You can also clean the heads manually if the automatic cleaning is not
sufficient.
The ink cartridge also contains two print heads that have to be aligned.
If you observe poor print quality (streaked, too light, blurred, etc.),
see Maintaining the Ink Cartridge on page 259.
