U.S. Postal Service offers Informed Delivery to see your mail before it arrives in your mailbox.

I have been using the U.S. Post Office's Informed Delivery on-line notification service for about a week and it has pretty much worked as promised showing me digital photos of every letter that will be showing up in my mailbox that afternoon.  It isn't something I would review on a regular basis but it is nice having an email arrive in the background every morning showing me whats going to be delivered.  If I was waiting on a check or other important piece of mail, it is nice knowing that I have ther service running in the background where I can see what is coming and can review past history on the USPS website.

After reading so many items lately on mail fraud and mail box security, I figured this was something worth sharing.

To set up, go to and register an account with your address. then set your Informed Delivery notification options.

I think this is a fabulous service. We were recently victims of identity theft and because of this service we were able to see when the "lost credit cards" were due to arrive in our mailbox, and when they did not, we were able to use this information to add to the police report. We don't get much mail, so it only takes a few minutes to look at it each morning.
