OR

Thank you

Both will reach their recipients.

I would avoid the "all caps" style except for the last two lines, add a dot after M and use accents where needed.

La Poste - Direction du Courrier
Service Achats - M. Michel Dupont
Cité Descartes
2 boulevard Newton
CHAMPS SUR MARNE
77453 MARNE LA VALLEE CEDEX 2

  • Useful information on the French Wikipedia. – ﺪﺪﺪ Nov 9 '17 at 15:27
  • @Feelew Thanks for the link, I knew about the all caps recommendation for the last two lines but forgot about the no accent one for them. – jlliagre Nov 9 '17 at 15:33
