About the 'Batch Summary' screen:

As the title implies, the 'Batch Summary' screen is intended to provide an overall summary of the Batch ran. It provides some key information about the mailing, such as total Document Count, Addresses Coded, Insert information, and information about you as the mailer, or whomever the actual mailer might be. Click Details, below, for an explanation of all elements on the Batch Summary screen.

Version: USPS® certifies CASS software solutions in "cycles", denoted by a single letter value. As the example screen-shot above shows ...the present cycle is 'N'. The next cycle will be 'O'. The AutoMail® major version (9, in the above example) coincides with the CASS cycle.
