*At position 231 of the output file (”Postal Correction Character”), the value “E” will appear for students who only have a verified email address.  The output file will still contain the mailing address provided by the student in the normal address fields.  The address may or may not be deliverable, and may or may not be valid; it is simply not possible for us to verify it.  We know that in certain circumstances, the USPS-certified software we use cannot verify that the mailing address exists, which is not uncommon in either rural areas or in large apartment buildings.
