For our IS-330 I placed a Generic call on the Online Services option which connected and then said it was done. Did the new rates automatically download during this connection? Thanks

Hi Barbara, The new rates should have automatically downloaded when you completed the Generic call.

Does the rate chage for letter size (up to 1 oz) take effect on 1-27-19 or 1-21-19?

Hi Kathy, if you have rate change protection your postage meter will alert you when the new rates are available and what you need to do to update. For more information on checking if you have rate change protection or how to update your specific machine please go here:
