Ever wonder what the mail will bring? Are you trying to track a lost package or envelope? Try the Informed Delivery Service offered for free by the United States Postal Service. Incoming mail and packages are scanned by the USPS and the images are delivered to you everyday via email.
Every morning around 8:00 a.m. I receive an email with the scanned images of incoming mail. Incoming envelopes and some direct mail flyers are scanned, larger junk mail is not included.
I have found the service to be very accurate as to what is actually delivered and of course shout out to a wonderful mailman we are lucky to have.
The service also tracks any incoming packages. This has been very helpful when trying to track a package ordered online, but the package is mailed via two delivery services. I have found this to be happening more and more frequently where one major delivery service hands off the package to the local USPS for delivery.
When you track the delivery route at times it has been difficult to determine when/if the package is being delivered and by which service.
How To Sign Up?
A few clicks of the mouse will bring you to the sign up page for Informed Delivery Service.

Looking For A Specific Piece Of Mail?
