U.S. Postal Service Testing Service To Email Your Mail

U.S. Postal Service

The U.S. Postal Service is testing a new service to take snail mail into the future.

According to Complex, the service is called Informed Delivery, and will email customers photos of the envelopes of their letter-size mail.

While it sounds invasive, the service will only send daily photos of your mail's exterior, not its contents.

Informed Delivery is currently operating in seven different Virginia zip codes, but is set to make its way to the New York City metro area soon.

It's currently free, but customers need to sign up online to begin receiving photos of your letters.
