Are you referring to callsign on the MAIL TO address label? If you intend to put green stamps in the envelope, this is not a good idea. It indicates to unscrupulous mail carriers that there may be something of value in the envelope. It's best to keep mailing addresses on the envelope as generic as possible, including the return address - best practice is to have your mailed envelope look like a business mailing. While the problem may be small, you can help avoid it this way. It has worked well for me over the years. Hope this is useful!

Duane,

Just confirmed with Lele that there will be an option to "use" or "not use" a call sign in the address labels in V2. Thanks for input and I had forwarded that to him for the list of items in V2. He said it will be done.
