> Global priority mail is now limited to 3 ounces. That

> accessories overseas inexpensively.
> Parcel Post--ALL packages now have to be measured and
> are charged more as size goes up--not just weight.
> That should certainly drive a lot of shiping into
> UPS/FedEx camp.
> There's many other small changes. If you ship a lot,
> you probably ought to visit USPS.COM and check it out.
