The US Postal Service is now offering a service called “Informed Delivery” that provides customers with digital previews of their mail before it arrives at their doorstep. This includes everything from what type of letter or card it is to the sender’s name and address as well as when they can expect it to arrive in their mailbox. Customers who sign up for this service will receive notifications via email or text message letting them know an item has been delivered to their mailbox based upon the time slot selected by the sender (in most cases between 5:00 AM-8:00 PM). This way, you know what you’re getting and when before it shows up.
There are three different service levels to choose from that offer different details about your mail: Basic, Plus, and Advanced. Here is an overview of each level:
· Basic – Recipient can expect to see who sent the letter/card along with a black-and-white photograph of the exterior of the envelope or card with no additional information.
· Plus – The plus level will provide customers with color images of their envelopes or cards against a white background with the identity of the senders in some cases. When available, USPS may also include complete delivery address information as well as origin ZIP Code information.
· Advanced – Customers who choose the advanced service will receive exterior and interior color images of their mail against a white background as well as additional data such as complete delivery address information, origin ZIP Code, and sender name and address.

Once you have created an account, you can also use your AOL, Yahoo!, Hotmail/Live/Outlook.com accounts too. You can then choose which level of service would be best for you based on the information provided above along with the time slot(s) that will work best for you to preview your incoming mail.
Can I cancel informed delivery:
Informed Delivery allows people who have been invited to preview upcoming mail from their mailbox before it arrives.

‘The United States Postal Service uses 1 or more email bulletins to distribute messages. Your email address was provided by an outside organization, which may opt-out of receiving future mailings.’
One of the most typical informed delivery issues is that no image of the mail piece may be seen on your account. USPS Informed Delivery does not presently provide a picture service for large pieces of mail (disappointing, but true). However, it is not all bad!
To permanently opt out: Go to optoutprescreen.com or call 1-888-5-OPT-OUT (1-888-562-6788) to get started. To finalize your request, however, you’ll need to sign and return the Permanent Opt Out Election form that you’ll receive after beginning the procedure.
The dashboard displays mailpiece pictures for a seven-day time period, and package details will be shown for 15 days after each item has been delivered. Users may also opt to receive email or text alerts with status updates on incoming shipments.
Alerts about incoming mailpieces are not limited to those that will arrive the same day. Pieces might be delayed in reaching your mailman. Alternatively, a piece may be misdelivered. After getting the warning, allow several days for delivery.
The USPS launched access to its Informed Delivery tool just as you were getting ready to record your stimulus check. When the post office scans a letter in your name, it photographs it. If you’re using Informed Delivery, you can see when your stimulus payment will arrive by signing up for the service.
The USPS Hold Mail® service, which is included at no extra cost with a standard First-Class stamp, can keep your mail secure at a local Post OfficeTM facility for up to 30 days. To keep your mail longer or redirect it, consider subscribing to a forwarding service. You may request the return of your mail up to 30 days in advance or as soon as possible after the next delivery date has passed.
Write “Refused” on the item and return it to your mail carrier. Even if they’re addressed to you, you can refuse most types of mail and have them returned to the sender. If you receive anything that isn’t wanted, simply write “Refused” on the box and send it back as soon as possible.
Simply send an email to [email protected] with the subject line “request for account deletion.” The email body may contain additional information, such as “here is my request for account deletion.” Request For Account Deletion
“Informed Delivery” is fully compliant with federal privacy regulations. The mail is secured by the U.S. Postal Inspection Service, which has one goal in mind: to safeguard the entire postal service system, including the carriers who deliver and process it as well as millions of consumers who use it.
Informed Delivery is a free and optional notification service for residential customers that allows them to preview their letter-sized mailpieces and manage their pending deliveries ahead of time.
After you print a direct mail piece, it’s scanned by the Post Office™ facility and put into a tracking system. The Informed Visibility tool may be used to follow shipments after they’ve been sent.
