Window Book, Inc. is pleased to announce the launch of a free online Mail.dat validation service - available at http://maildat11-1.windowbook.com - for the upcoming Mail.dat 11-1 specification. Mail.dat users can now upload 11-1 Mail.dat files for validation to ensure they have PostalOne!-compliant files before actually transmitting it to the PostalOne! system in January 2011.
Window Book’s Mail.dat 11-1 Validation Service is just the first of several new DAT-MAIL services, which are being rolled out to the marketplace in the near future. This service will help mailers validate any Mail.dat 11-1 files that their presort software vendors and/or service providers produce.
“With the very tight timeframes the mailing industry deals with these days, we are very pleased to have a free tool available to mailers and service providers that will help them validate their Mail.dat 11-1 files well in advance of the date they are required to submit them to PostalOne!. We are especially happy to be using our new DAT-MAIL services technology to be providing this free site, and we look forward to being able to fully announce the rest of those services and their availability in the very near future” said Jeffery Peoples, Window Book’s CEO.
In addition to this free, online validation service, mailers can also benefit from Window Book’s DAT-MAIL, post-presort mailing data management software, that helps them easily process Mail.dat files for importing, validating, splitting, merging, and exporting.
