    WPR Lookup Zip+4 error (2003 SP2)

    Trying the WOPR Lookup Zip+4 gets the error mesage show below. Searching the forum almost yielded an answer, but I could't see it.
    How do I fix this?

    ZIP+4 Code Lookup is courtesy of the USPS Web site at www.usps.com.

    Information returned by that site:

    Hi!

    The US Postal Service "broke" Lookup Zip+4 some time ago. I guess they decided that they wouldn't allow people to check Zip+4 codes via independent software.

    You can, however, perform the lookup using USPS's own interface. Take a gander at http://zip4.usps.com/zip4/welcome.jsp .

    Hope that helps a bit.
