- The mail stop code is required.
- The department name is optional – it will not be used by the Postal Operations Center.
- While optional, the employee name will almost always be there.
- We are suggesting all upper case characters for the required parts of the address. This makes the automatic sorting equipment of the US Postal Service work better. Upper case is not required, however.
