  1. Open uSetup and from the Configure menu, select IMB.

  1. From the Configure menu, Select Presort.





  1. Create a new Presort Type or edit an existing one. Ensure that the Program is set to RPPSSQL, Description will be a name you choose to identify this Presort Type and Template will be the name used for the Presort Template in Satori (Must be exactly the same). Set the Move Update type (if you are not using Move Update then set the value to None).  If using Full Service with Mail.dat then check Create Mail.dat & Send IMB.  If you wish to set a global IMB for this presort type then select the IMB from the dropdown (This will override the IMB set on the Submission Type).

  2. Ensure that the new presort type is updated in Submission Type Maintenance and that the IMB information is correct in the IMB tab.
