How can mail be returned when postage is sufficient even if the stamps were printed out more than 5 days previous?

I mailed something to my corporate office, and my stamp machine wasn't working properly so I put a stamp I had printed out a week ago on it. The envelope was returned, and said "returned for postage" and handwritten Postage is more than 5 days old. Has anyone ever heard of that???

  • YES, when I worked in the mailroom for one of our customer companies, it was the same thing with our meter, there is usually a date and it is only valid for that date.
    When we would send stamped envelopes we had to turn the date features off on our machine.
