How postal rate changes affect your postage meter
Through its computerized intelligence, your Francotyp-Postalia postage meter will download the new postal rates as part of the
normal Teleset postage download process. As we approach the rate change implementation date, your postage meter may
prompt you to make periodic connections to our server by running a Teleset transaction.
The Optimail may also display messages Postage Low or Security device has incorrect state.
Run the Teleset procedure as you normally would; you may either download postage or perform a zero dollar download if you do not require
postage for the time being.
Please consult your Operator Manual index under Teleset, Loading Postage or click here for step-by-step instructions
by model. (Note that the model name appears near the meter display window).
How to download the postal rates
You have two options to download the new rates:
1. Between December 16, 2010 and January 16, 2011 any regular postage download that you perform will update your meter rate table.
2. If you do not need to add postage to your meter during the above period, simply run a $0 postage download.
Your meter will automatically activate the new rates on January 17, 2011.
Avoid the last minute rush and possible busy modem lines. Download the new rates before January 2011!
