Mail Goes Digital With Informed Delivery

Friday, October 27, 2017

More than 114,349 customers in the Tennessee District area can now check their mail – before it’s delivered.  Informed Delivery provides residential customers an innovative experience in today’s highly digital environment, allowing them to see digital previews of their incoming mail. 

The free notification feature provides outside images of letter-sized mail destined for home delivery via a daily email or through informeddelivery.usps.com.  Images can be viewed as email notifications or accessed through an online dashboard. 

Registered Informed Delivery users can take action before important items reach their mailbox, and ensures everyone in the household can see the mail each day, not just those that pick up the mail from the physical mailbox.  Mailers now have an opportunity to engage users through synchronized direct mail and digital marketing campaigns. 

Nationwide, over 6.4 million customers can already access Informed Delivery.  Whether customers are in town or travelling for the holiday, Informed Delivery makes mail more convenient by allowing users to view what is coming to their mailbox whenever, wherever – even while traveling – on a computer, tablet or mobile device, said officials. 

To sign up or find more information on the feature, go to www.InformedDelivery.com

The Tennessee District serves ZIP Codes 370-374, 376-385 in Tennessee and 307 in northern Georgia. 

The Postal Service does not receive tax dollars for operating expenses; it relies entirely on the sale of postage, products and services to fund its operations.
