USPS News Link – 4/17/17 – If it’s in your mail, it’s in your email.

This is the concept behind Informed Delivery, a new feature from the Postal Service that provides residential consumers with digital previews of their incoming mail.

USPS completed the national rollout of the free, optional feature late last week. Consumers in 31,000 ZIP Codes are now eligible for the feature.

“Informed Delivery makes it easy and convenient for consumers to know what they’re going to receive in their mailboxes before it arrives,” said Product Innovation VP Gary Reblin. “With this new feature, the Postal Service is continuing to bridge the divide between the digital and the physical.”

Comment:  One of USPS most popular (internally) strategies is throwing good money after bad, and perpetuating mistakes indefinitely.
