Normal presets are the default conditions on your meter that you define with your most commonly used values, such as postage rates and class. These normal preset values will then be the default state on your mailing system when it is first powered on or after it awakens from "sleep" mode. The Postal Class setting, in addition to identifying your mail type, helps automate the preset process for future rate data changes. You can set the class according to your needs, such as a domestic standard letter, USA letter other, Parcel.
