    Something I ran across today.....

    Subject: Informed Delivery?
    I signed up for the USPS Informed Delivery service as soon as it was offered in my area.
    From the USPS page:
    “Digitally preview your mail and manage your packages scheduled to arrive soon! Informed Delivery allows you to view greyscale images of the exterior, address side of letter-sized mailpieces and track packages in one convenient location.*
    * Images are only provided for letter-sized mailpieces that are processed through USPS’ automated equipment”
    So far I have two distinct observations to share:
    #1 – Informed Delivery has changed my mailbox habits, and not for the better (even though being a mail geek, I know better!) I live in a complex that has a cluster box system. I used to go to the mailbox daily. I now skip the mailbox on days when the Informed Delivery preview is less than enticing. USPS has effectively stolen my “mail moment”.
    #2 – When Informed Delivery rolled out, I was using both the app and the emails. On the app, there is a checkbox where you can report that you didn’t receive a piece of mail pictured. On the emails, there is wording at the bottom – wording that seems to have morphed:
    From an email Informed Delivery Notification – August 2018 – “Didn’t get a mailpiece pictured above? Let us know. ”
    Sometime during the beginning of September, the verbiage was drastically changed to – “Mailpieces may arrive several days after you receive the notification. Please allow up to a week for delivery before reporting missing mail.”
    What? The notification isn’t for what is in today’s mail, it’s for what may be in this weeks’ mail?
    Now USPS has stolen the Informed Delivery moment for me as well.

      Eating at a coffee shop with some friends. "Oh neat, an email from the USPS! Let's see what's in my mail."

      EVICTION NOTICE.

        In addition, Informed shows you pieces of mail from the prior occupant of the address, even though those pieces don't get delivered.....and for those of you that doubted it and for those of you who still thinks the USPS knows what its doing:

              Not long, apparently...
              By fraudulently creating an Informed Delivery account with USPS online, scammers can view the outside of your mail before it even arrives.

                Gee Whiz, everyone complains about the lack of efficiency at the USPS, and here, they've made things more efficient for thieves and everyone complains! ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

                It seems far too complex, costs money, involves a lot of people, will take time etc etc. And then you run out of excuses. Read the article.
