Everyone has probably heard about mail being stolen from our neighbors’ and friends’ mailboxes, or experienced it yourself. It’s very frustrating and an invasion of privacy. Since many of our CBWA members have rural mailboxes, we seem to be more likely targets for thieves. If you haven’t heard of UPSP Informed Delivery, it’s free and worth checking out. This service won’t prevent theft, but it is helpful to know what mail is coming.
Informed Delivery, offered by the United States Post Office, emails a digital preview of your mail to your computer or mobile device before it arrives. You’ll receive greyscale images of the address side of letter-sized mail pieces. There are some other features as well but this one in particular may benefit some of our members.
