Testing Environment for Mailers (TEM) Using Mail.XML
Although not required, mailers using software pre-approved by USPS may choose to test their ability to submit electronic mailing information by using the Test Environment for Mailers (TEM).
Who is TEM for?
Full-Service mailers using Mail.XML eDoc submission.
Mail Owners and Mail Service Providers who wish to validate a Full-Service test mailing can do so by submitting a single file through TEM per the instructions outlined below. The instructions provide information to acquire an account, download software to submit your file, submit your electronic mailing information and view the electronic postage statement and qualification reports in our test system.
Traditional TEM certification can take weeks, but USPS offers a streamlined process to TEM-certified software users. To expedite the approval process, choose a USPS pre-approved approved vendor
