Hand-held phone

USPS News Link – 2/15/17 – The Postal Service is expanding Informed Delivery, an optional, free feature that provides eligible residential consumers with a digital preview of their incoming mail.

Through Informed Delivery, users receive images of the outside of their household’s letter-sized mailpieces that will arrive in their physical mailboxes soon. Users can receive these images via email or by accessing their online dashboard at

USPS has been testing Informed Delivery in select areas. By late April, the feature is slated to be available nationwide.

“Informed Delivery makes it easy and convenient to know what’s arriving in your mailbox each day,” said Product Innovation VP Gary Reblin. “We’re eager to share this new feature with consumers across the United States.”

The Postal Service is rolling out Informed Delivery by ZIP Code, beginning with major metropolitan areas.

Employees, who are also invited to sign up for Informed Delivery, will be notified when the feature becomes available in their area.

They can also check the feature’s availability by using the ZIP Code lookup feature at, which has sign-up instructions and a list of FAQs.

The Informed Delivery pages on Blue and LiteBlue have additional information.

    I for one am for the technological advancement’s and think they are great ,, yet if we are moving forward in this area ,, we then especially need to be well equipped with the office and on the streets , as a Carrier , I can absolutely state , I am sick of the dinosaur equipment we have to truly be efficient , with our sorting route machine for boxes , that machine could also give our scanners the needed info , for carriers each day , 7 days a week , like dynamic delivery for Sunday’s , meaning no Carrier would have to mark packages , or make a list or happen to miss one if retaining in memory, , back to the SCANNERS ,, they are SLOW and unable to keep up with Our Increased Speed & Amount , many of them are unable to Efficiently work correctly on our Sunday’s ,, unable to stay charged , unable to map majority of time ,, all glitch and that takes away time which equals inferior performance on the end of the Carriers due to these Inadequate Scanners , BRING US UP TODATE , so we can truly unite with our Awesome technological world

    Who in the world would want to get txt of all the crap junk mail in todays mail? This will take so much time to sit and take pictures/scans of mail at each box. If it is pictures/scans at the plant that is trouble also, what if the piece of mail does not get to the office or carrier? The customer is going to be calling in for every piece of junk mail they think they are suppose to get. I don’t see the point of this and definitely not for free.

    seems like they already know what a person has for mail, so why have to scan 15 pieces when randomly asked?
