Default Mailing A Bruchure Without A Tab

I'm back with another general question I hope someone can help me with. I'm afraid if I call the local USPS office - their answer might just be a "NO". But my question is:

Can you mail a tri-fold brochure using the carrier-route discount and not apply tabs to close the brochure?

We've mailed brochures in the past and applies the tabs by-hand (boring and time-consuming) and I found this quote from a non-USPS web site regarding the subject while I was searching for an inexpensive tabbing machine (they don't exist by-the-way):

Copied from http://www.iprintnmail.com/door-hangers.html
The brochures open on top (length 8.5 or smaller) can put on one tab; otherwise two tabs are required. However, if the mailers are using a resident list, paying the saturation rate and using tabs are not required.
I've been unable to find any mention of the rules regarding this in the USPS DMM - yet - but I'm still searching.

I thought if someone had experience with this - they could at least point me in the right direction.

Thank you in advance for any information.

The DMM section you were looking for was 243 6.1.2 g&h

If it's Basic ECR note that the rates for Automation and NonAuto are currently the same.

If it's enhanced or saturation, the non-auto is currently only a penny more.
