The Intelligent Mail Barcode functionality has been built into version 7.91.5056 of Raiser's Edge and is only available when using PostalSaver in the Mail module. Please update to this version or a later version of The Raiser's Edge to have this option. There are no plans to incorporate Intelligent Mail Barcode functionality into other Raiser's Edge modules because it requires a Mailer ID to meet automation sorting standards, which is entered in PostalSaver.
Intelligent Mail Barcodes (IMb) are fully functional as of the Feb/March 2011 PostalSaver release, prior to when the USPS mandate takes affect. For directions on how to enable this in your Raiser's Edge database, please click here.

NOTE: USPS eliminated automation discounts for the POSTNET barcode on January 27, 2013.
