USPS offers window to your mail before arrival in mailbox

Informed Delivery gives a digital preview of incoming envelopes, postcards

With Labor Day behind us, we start thinking about the upcoming holiday season with the promise of letters and cards from loved ones far away. To keep track of the season’s mail, the Postal Service would like our customers to know of a convenient feature to help consumers preview their mail: Informed Delivery.

Whether consumers are in town or traveling for the holidays, Informed Delivery lets residential consumers see what is arriving in their mailboxes by sending them digital previews of their incoming envelopes and postcards. These images can be viewed via email notifications, or accessed through an online dashboard at informeddelivery.usps.com — perfect for travelers to check for important letters that are arriving over the holiday weekend.

Informed Delivery already has more than five million users nationwide and has received exceptional reviews: 96 percent of users indicated they are very satisfied or satisfied with the new feature, and 95 percent check their notifications every day or almost every day. Informed Delivery is quick, easy to use, and free.

USPS services and products are available around-the-clock for the convenience of our customers.

· Stamps are available at most grocery, pharmacy and convenience stores.

For 24/7 access to most postal products and services, go to www.usps.com, where you can look up a ZIP Code, track a package, buy stamps, hold mail, print postage online, submit a change of address, schedule a package pickup and find USPS locations.
