Testing Environment for Mailers (TEM) Using Mail.Dat

The Test Environment for mailers (TEM) is a test platform designed to allow mailers to test their ability to submit electronic mailing information such as Full Service (FS) mailings to the Postal Service. In this platform mailers can submit their electronic mailing information generated from their presort software to the Postal Service.

Description

In this platform, mailers can submit their electronic mailing information generated from their presort software to the Postal Service. They can then view the resulting electronic mailing postage statements and qualification reports extracted from their electronic submissions. 

A Simple mailing is one presented with a single permit and identical weight pieces.

A Complex mailing is a mailing with non-identical weight pieces and has a type of Special Postage Payment System (SPPS) approved by Business Mailer Support (i.e., MLOCR, Comail, Copal, OP, MMS).

Mail Owners and Mail Service Providers preparing Simple and/or Complex mailings using vendor approved software that has already been validated for eDoc and Full-Service with the Postal Service are not required to go through TEM for Full-Service authorization.

If the review of your postage statement is successful, please send an email to the Help Desk at PostalOne@usps.gov with your Company name & address, CRID, Job ID, and a message that your electronic information populated correctly.
