I'm trying to print a mailing label this morning, and it keeps printing out as "First Class", not media mail, though I'm doing nothing different/special than I normally do.  Is anyone else having this problem today?  Is there anything I can do (besides crossing it out, obviously), or is it just a glitch that will get fixed in time?

Is the weight on the page 7 oz or less? If the package weight is 7 oz or less, it will print First Class. This is because the First Class rate is cheaper than Media Mail for those smaller weights. Many mass market PPB's can be mailed First Class.

Jane, thanks for the info!  That's exactly what the "problem" is.  Guess I don't normally send out many mass market pb's that small.
