The invention relates to a device for performing a data management for a sending mail by means of a data processing system having at least one input device for inputting data, a processor unit and a memory unit as well as an output device for outputting data.

The invention further relates to a method for performing a data management for a sending mail by means of a program stored in a memory unit of a data processing system program.

Devices and methods of the type mentioned are designed in the art to provide mailpieces with recipient addresses and to weigh them if necessary, and to frank correct according to predetermined rules in accordance with their weight and dimensions. However, the known devices have the disadvantage that a data management in order to optimize a Zustellvorgangs with the aim of reducing costs and increasing the feed rate and, if the deliverability is not possible.

The object of the invention is therefore to provide a method and a device by means of which a Zustellvorgangs in terms of a reduction in cost and an increase in the feed rate and possibly the deliverability is optimized.

For a device of the aforementioned type this object is achieved in that in the storage unit a program is stored comprising the steps of:

- inputting and storing in any order, a plurality of a receiver name and a recipient's address existing receiver addresses to a total quantity of mail is to be delivered in the data processing system, in its memory unit, substantially all actually existing recipient addresses within the total area of ​​a country and a plurality associated Zustellzellen are of a respective subset of the Zustallanschriften stored, each covering a Enclosed geographical area of ​​the state and which one of them uniquely identifying code is associated in each case, wherein the program is adapted to perform the steps of: • assigning a respective Zustellzelle to each of the recipient addresses entered,

• reordering of the data set of the plurality each having a receiver address containing the receiver addresses as specified by the stored

Recipient addresses in the sense of delivery optimization for a marking to be controlled of the mailpieces with recipient addresses in such a way that with a marking operation, the respective for a

Zustellzelle provided mailpieces are uniformly markable and successively sorted in the sense of an optimized distribution in a predefined order, and generating a corresponding re-ordered, at least

Recipient addresses containing data set.

For a method of the aforementioned type this object is achieved by the following program steps: - inputting and storing in any order, a plurality of a receiver name and a recipient's address existing receiver addresses to a total quantity of mail is to be delivered in the data processing system, in the memory unit substantially all actually existing recipient addresses assigned from a respective subset of the Zustallanschriften Zustellzellen stored within the total area of ​​a country and a plurality, each covering a Enclosed geographical area of ​​the state and each associated with one of them unique identifying code, wherein the program is adapted to perform the following steps:

• Associating a respective Zustellzelle to each of the recipient addresses entered, • reordering of the data set of the plurality each having a receiver address containing the receiver addresses as specified by the stored receiver addresses in the sense of delivery optimization for a marking to be controlled of the mailpieces with the

Recipient addresses in such a way that with a marking operation, the designated for a respective Zustellzelle mailpieces are uniformly markable and successively sorted in the sense of an optimized distribution in a predefined order, and generating a corresponding re-ordered, containing at least recipient addresses record.
