CHAPTER  4 MAIL CLASSIFICATION AND SERVICES MAIL   CLASSIFICATION Upon   the   completion   of   this   chapter,   you   will know   how   to   classify   the   different   categories   of   mail, understand   the   Navy’s   mailing   policy,   what   special services   are   available,   and   the   restrictions   that   apply to   each. As   the   official   mail   manager   (OMM)   or   assistant, you   will   be   accepting   many   different   types   of   articles, such   as   letters,   merchandise,   books,   magazines,   and other   similar   items.   Before   you   accept   any   article   for mailing,   you   should   determine   what   class   of   mail   it   is and   by   what   method   it   will   be   sent.   Domestic   mail   is classified   by   weight,   contents,   and   service.   Domestic mail   is   divided   into   five   classes:   Express,   First-Class, Periodicals,   Standard   Mail   (A),   and   Standard   Mail   (B). When   you   are   ready   to   conduct   business, determine   what   classes   of   mail   you   will   be   handling. You   should   be   familiar   with   domestic   mail,   its   classes, and   the   rates   of   postage. Domestic   mail   as   stated   in   the   Domestic   Mail M a n u a l   is   defined   as: “Domestic   mail   is   mail transmitted   within,   among,   and   between   the   United States;   its   territories   and   possessions;   the   areas comprising   the   former   Canal   Zone;   Army/Air   Force post  offices  (APO)  and  fleet  post  offices  (FPO);  and mail   for   delivery   to   the   United   Nations,   New   York.   ” To   understand   what   the   term   t e r r i t o r i e s     a nd possessions   means,   refer   to   figure   4-1. From  figure  4-1,  you  can  see  it  is  possible  to  send a  letter  halfiway  around  the  world  and  be  subject  to  the same   rate   of   postage   as   you   would   for   a   letter   being sent   across   town. Domestic   mail   is   divided   into   classes   according   to the  contents  and  weight  of  the  article  being  mailed,  and the   service   desired   by   the   sender. - To   compute   the   postage   and   fees   for   domestic mail,   you   should   use   the   Domestic   Mail   Manual (DMM)   and   the   changes   announced   in   the   USPS Postal   Bulletin.   Use  USPS  Poster  123-L  or  123-S  with the   Postal   Zone   Chart   of   the   mailing   post   office   to determine   the   postal   zone.   Compute   the   postage   and f e e s    f o r    i n t e r n a t i o n a l    m a i l    a c c o r d i n g    t o    t he Figure 4-1.—List of U.S. territories and possessions.

Items   mailed   from   one   overseas   military   post office   (MPO)   to   another   overseas   MPO   in   the   same geographic  theater  will  display  the  words   DOD  official intratheater   mail   in   the   area   where   the   postage   is usually   affixed.   The   words    DOD   offlcial   intratheater m a i l   c a n    b e    t y p e w r i t t e n ,    r u b b e r    s t a m p e d ,    or mechanically    printed.
