The most recent Issue 300 of the Domestic Mail Manual (DMM) was issued on May 11, 2009.

This Issue of the DMM contains all Postal Service domestic mailing standards. This issue continues to (1) increase the user's ability to find information, (2) increase confidence that users have found all the information they need, and (3) reduce the need to consult multiple chapters of the Manual to locate necessary information. Issue 300, dated May 11, 2009, set forth specific changes, such as new standards throughout the DMM to support the pricing changes approved by the Governors of the United States Postal Service. The new prices and standards were effective May 11, 2009. Changes to mailing standards will continue to be published through Federal Register notices and the Postal Bulletin, and will appear in the next printed version of Mailing Standards of the United States Postal Service, Domestic Mail Manual, and in the online version available via Postal Explorer
