We are away from home frequently. We keep track of any important USPS mail sent to our home address by using USPS Informed Delivery. We get an email everyday with a picture of each piece of mail to be delivered that day and a description of each box being delivered. It works very well.
When we recieve the email showing the expected mail we can have a friend/family member retrieve it and take whatever action is necessary.
Once we had an email showing we should receive a letter with a check in it but it did not show up in our mail box. informed Delivery let us notify USPS that it was not delivered and they investigated. We had the sender cancel the check and resend in a timely manner. So Informed Delivery has several uses.
