I was looking for this answer myself and realized that Manifest Ack means Manifest Acknowledged. The Post Office has received, recorded and accepted the package/letter. Hope this hleps.

Manifest ack happens when you print out the postage but have not given the post office the physical package. Once you take to the post office or carrier picks up then it gets an acceptance scan and the delivery time starts.

MA on USPS or Manifest Ack means Manifest Acknowledgement. I went to USPS websites Appendix I Product Tracking System Scan Event Codes at this address
An “electronic acceptance” of the record representing the mail piece in the Product Tracking System (PTS) database generated by receipt/processing of the electronic file sent by the mailer. This not a physical scan of the package.
I hope this helps.

I just got the same message and didn't know what it meant. I came here and found this thread. Thanks for the clarification on the matter.

Now with this Manifest Ack present, will my package be sent to it's location, and how much longer could it take until its on the truck/van? This is the first time it has ever happened to me.
