When the USPS runs mail letters through its automated mail sorting equipment, it creates a digital image of the front of all letter-size mail. Anyone who signs up for Informed Delivery can take advantage of that information by asking USPS to notify you when each mail item with your name is on its way. Please note that it can take up to three days to activate your account.
As part of the program, you will receive an email every morning from Monday to Saturday to notify you that mail is being delivered to you. You will also see a grayscale image of the front of the letter. Informed Delivery also has free apps for Android and iOS.
