Energy Star® Compliance
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
Meet Your Mailing System
Office equipment is generally powered on 24 hours a day, so power management
features are important for saving energy and reducing air pollution.
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
p.135 .

on incoming mail, or “No printing” for seal only applications.
For each 'Type of stamp' you select, the Mailing System displays all the specifications
- and only those specifications - for the type of process you will use.
Each type of stamp is associated to:
• A specific Home Screen that displays current stamp configuration (weight,
postage...)
• A specific Imprint Configuration Menu that allows you to set stamp parameters.

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.
Check that your Mailing System is connected to a telephone line
or network (see Connections p.17 ) and that the connection is
properly configured (see Connection Settings p.151 ).
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.

Accounting and Assigning Rights Overview
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.
You can activate one or the other of these functions.
Postage tracking can be done using your Mailing system, on line, or with a MAS.
5
The Accounts Function
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.
The Access Control Function
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
• Unique 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.
Managing Accounts and Assigning Rights
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.
You can then issue reports on each account (for information about reports, see
Reports p.93 ).

Reports Overview
As a user or supervisor, you can get a range of reports to regularly view, print or store
information regarding your Mailing System usage, funds usage, account expenditures, etc.
Your Mailing System can also upload basic data that can be viewed online. Enhanced
online postal expense management reporting can be added as an option.
Reports generally require a beginning date and an end date. Typically, the reports are
available on screen and can be printed out on an external USB printer or saved on a
USB memory key.
Your Mailing System also allows you to get reports on mailing activity over the past
two years.
Additional reporting capabilities are available through connection to PC based accounting software solutions (MAS).

Online Services Overview
7.1
Online Services Overview
The Online Services simplify the use and the update of your Mailing System.
Online Services features and capabilities include:
• Online reporting : the usage of your machine is available from your personal,
secure web account, simplifying tracking and reporting of your postage expenses.
• eConfirmation Services : save money with USPS discounts on Delivery and Signature Confirmation services, and simplify the process of sending Certified Mail.
Monitor delivery of all of your tracked mail from your web account.
• Rate Updates : maintain current postal rates with automatic, electronic, convenient downloads into your Mailing System (see Options and Updates p.155 )
• Ink alerts : never run out of ink again! The online server monitors your mailing
machine ink supply and e-mails an alert notification when it is time to re-order.
• Remote diagnostics and technical support : experienced technical professionals
analyze your mailing machine's error logs, diagnose your mailing machine before
an on-site service visit and your system software can be updated remotely, reducing service delays.
• Ad-die download : order a new ad-die and get it downloaded via Online Services
server directly to your Mailing System.
Online Services
Your Mailing System connects to Online Services server via the same telephone or
network connection you use to add postage to your meter.
All connections are secure, and data is maintained under strict privacy policies.

To fully benefit from the convenience and power of Online Services, your Mailing
System should permanently be connected to a live analog telephone line or network
connection so that it can link to the Online Server automatically whenever required.
For the usage of some services, some automatic calls are scheduled to upload corresponding data.
For the Reports service, the Mailing System automatically connects at the end of
each month to upload accounting and postal category statistics.
For the eConfirmation service, your Mailing System automatically connects at night if
you have processed transactions with an eConfirmation service that day.
For the Ink Management service, the Mailing System automatically connects when
it’s time to re-order ink supplies.
It is strongly recommended that you leave the Mailing System
turned on, in sleep mode, and connected to a live analog telephone line or network during the night, to allow the connection to
the Online Server to occur automatically.

Manual Calls
Manual calls allow you to connect to the Online Server in order to retrieve new information (update postal rates, ad-dies/slogan or messages) or to enable features and
options (weigh platform capacity, number of accounts, differential weighing, etc.).
You will be instructed to use this function when rates change if
you do not have a rate protection agreement.
You can trigger a call to the Online Services server from the user menu as well as
from the supervisor menu.

eConfirmation Services
7.5
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.
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.
eDelivery Confirmation
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.
7
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.).
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.

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.

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.
For information about the optional scanner, please contact your Customer Service
representative.
How to Process eConfirmation Items using the WP
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 p.140 ).
3
Select the rate corresponding to the package to send (see
How to Select a Rate p.48 ).
If the rate requires a zip code to be entered, a specific screen
is displayed to capture the Zip code.
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.
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.
7
Online Services
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.

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.

Maintaining the Ink Cartridge
10.1 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 p.173 .
Ink Cartridge Maintenance
This section explains how to:
• Check the ink level in the cartridge to make sure you will not be run out of ink
• Align the print heads
• Do an automatic cleaning of the print heads
• Clean the print heads manually
• Change the ink cartridge
