Anyone using USPS Informed Delivery?

I signed up last week. They email you a picture of everything they are delivering to your mail box.

Pretty neat.

My son did it. He says its really cool. I recall the automated USPS mail processing equipment a company I worked for was working on in the early 1980's. It was crazy complicated. Looks like a lot has been done since then.

I think I accidentally signed up for it while purchasing postage for an eBay auction. It was interesting for about a week. Then got tired of looking at scans of junk mail waiting for me when I get home.

Doesn't work for all; I tried to put my post office box on it and it told me "business addresses aren't allowed".



(BTW, it's spelled < y'all >.)

I tried to sign up and after one failed login my account was "locked" with no indication of how to unlock it mi called customer service, navigated an insanely long menu, and was told wait times exceeded one hour. Eventually I created a new account and it seems to be working. Hope it was worth the effort.

I meant to do it and then totally forgot about it. It would be good for me because I have a long walk to the mail box and don't feel like doing it some days.

Somehow I must have signed up for it, but I can't say where or when. It started coming at the beginning of summer. I like it, though it does take some of the fun out of seeing what's in the mail at the end of the work day.

I hope this doesn't slow down service if it gets really popular. Amazon's own delivery drivers are doing that now, taking a photo of the package after it's delivered and including the pic in a notification.

Love it! It was really nice seeing what would be delivered each day while on vacation. Doesn't work for flats and packages though.

I've been using it for a few months. I caught two pieces if non-delivered Mail. One strangely showed up the next day, and another was dropped at my doorstep the same day by a neighbor.
I think they will start doing packages soon.

Man, would I love to. I can't get into my account no matter what I do. I am pretty sure I know my name and password there but no dice. When I say I forgot my password, it says every possible username i try is invalid. When I say I forgot my username, it tells me I have to create a new one. When I go to create a new account it says I already have an account no matter which of those usernames I try... I thought they were invalid???? GRRRRRR.

Supposedly, they scan your mail regardless of whether or not you're signed up, so all you're doing is tapping into an existing resource.
