How can I get electronic fees for delivery confirmation?

Does anyone know how to get the reduced electronic fees for delivery confirmation using either first class or media mail at the USPS site? Is this service even available directly from them? I know how to use their site by printing a label for priority mail with free delivery confirmation. But there doesn't appear to be any information or links I could find for the other mail services.

I recently used Stamps.com for a month and they provide the service but it costs a fee to use them every month. The only information I could find was at this link, but it only listed the fees. I tried calling the USPS customer service number and they couldn't provide any help.

The USPS Website practically hides it!

If you need REAL shipping solutions of any sort, use FedEx or UPS. They're both great.

You also need to have Adobe Acrobat Version 5.0 or later to display the labels.

BTW, that is also free to download.

I had to download that version of the Adobe Acrobat Reader a month ago. So I should be set if I download the mail software.

If you decide to take the plunge, let me know what you think.
I've actually received compliments from PO employees on my labels.

I wanted to try it but I am having trouble installing the software. For some reason I keep getting an error with a certain file everytime I try to install it. If I can ever get that problem sorted out I will let you know.

I was finally able to install the software last night but it wasn't easy. Ended up deleting everything on my hard drive and reformatting it. Once I got my computer running again the installation went smoothly. Also it's nice having my computer running much better after removal of three years worth of clutter.

I now need to spend time using the software to see how it works. But it looks like it will do what I wanted.
