Did you know that the U.S. Postal Service has a feature available that allows you to digitally preview what mail you have arriving before you even go to your mailbox?
It is called “Informed Delivery” and it is available for FREE through the U.S. Postal Service. To get started — CLICK HERE — to sign up… It is a 3-step process where you will create your account, verify your identity, and receive notifications.
Once your account is created, it may take a period of time before you will start seeing the notifications in your email account. Once you start receiving the notifications in your email you will be able to view grayscale images of the exterior, address side of letter-sized mailpieces scheduled to arrive soon. You can also check the delivery status of packages and when they’re scheduled to arrive. If for some reason you do not start seeing the email previews, make sure you check your spam folder in your email client.
I have been using the service for quite a while and has saved me from making unnecessary trips to the mailbox.
