Informed delivery lets you digitally preview your mail items and manage parcels that are scheduled to arrive imminently, the service is completely free to use and has an optional notification service that enables residential customers the ability to digitally vet their letter-sized mail items. It makes it a much more convenient option by allowing customers to view what is incoming to their mailbox wherever they are whenever they want via a smartphone, tablet or computer/laptop.

Informed Delivery helps the whole household and ensures that everyone has a track of everything that is incoming, it can let the user take action if needed if there is a mistake with what may be incoming before it hits their mailbox.

You will only receive notifications on days when there is mail to be delivered, so don't worry if you haven't had any notifications yet you are simply waiting for someone to post something to you. If you know that someone has sent something to you and you are yet to receive a notification then check your spam filter settings and also the contents of your deleted and junk mail folders. It is advisable to add firstname.lastname@example.org as a trusted source to prevent the spam filter from blocking your notifications.
