I have a site hosted with RackSpace using PHP.
I wish to verify postal addresses via the USPS API.
To do this I need to send data in XML format and read the resultant page.

This is what I need to send:

http://production.shippingapis.com/ShippingAPITest.dll?API=Verify&XML=<AddressValidateRequest USERID='I AM PUTTING MY ID HERE'><Address ID='0'><Address1></Address1> <Address2>6406 Ivy Lane</Address2><City>Greenbelt</City><State>MD</State> <Zip5></Zip5><Zip4></Zip4></Address></AddressValidateRequest>

If I put the line above in a browser window it works fine...

How would I do this?
