>-->four-digit add-on. Use of the four-digit add-on number is voluntary.
>   However, this add-on number helps the Postal Service direct mail
>   efficiently and accurately. Even if you prefer not to use your
>   four-digit add-on number, using the correct five-digit ZIP Code helps
>   prevent delays.
