Get E-Mail Notifications, From The USPS, Of The Mail That Is To Be Delivered To You That Day!
This is June, so this is NOT an April Fool’s gag. Honest.
They didn’t have to really do much to offer this service. They already scan all the mail as a part of their first-cut, automated sorting system. They use state-of-the-art OCR (optical character recognition) to pick-out the zip-code. So, extending that to read the rest of the address was not too difficult.
It could be a GREAT help. For a start you can see IF the check is indeed in the mail — way ahead of the mail being delivered.
I like it — THOUGH alas it is not available in my zip though it is SUPPOSED to be! As ever my loss and the price I pay for living in the stick.
But, check it out. Sign-up for it. It will be handy.
