  • You cannot edit a normal preset. To change a normal preset, you must create a new normal preset, which replaces the previous normal preset.
  • To ensure that your preset gets automatically updated when postal rates change, define your preset using a class rather than a fixed amount.
  • Normal presets are the default conditions on your meter that you define based on your most commonly used values, such as postage rates and class. These normal preset values are the default state on your mailing system when it first powers on, or after it awakens from "sleep" mode.
