I just followed the link (thanks krid) and I saw my post from a year ago. Of course I don't do it exactly the same now.

My format for delivery to the mastering house these days is:
  • Bounce to Disk
  • 24 bit
  • 44.1 or 48k matching the sample rate of the session
  • Multiple mono sound files (not stereo interleaved)
  • .WAV file format for it's relative universality (I believe this is the only difference)
Hope this helps.
