We signed up for this...   very handy when you're traveling or if you're waiting for something important!

For the 'tinfoil hat' person in me though it makes me wonder just how long the USPS has been scanning every piece of mail in the country and how long they maintain those scans ??? ??? ??? :o :o :o >:( >:( >:(

Only since the anthrax attacks in 2001.  It is called the Mail Isolation Control and Tracking program.

If you watched the reality TV show "Hunted" earlier this year they showed the mail scanning and how they used both to and from addresses to piece together where the "fugitives" may be going and who they talked to.  That along with cell phone records, ATM logs, and license plate scans at toll booths and freeway cameras it is scary to know just how much big brother knows about us.

We probably should sign up, though we no longer get a lot of mail.  unfortunately, our delivery is often poor with mail being delivered to the wrong house or taking longer than normal to get to/from us.

I mailed a card from Temperance PO to Toledo. It took 6 days.
My brother in law has mail forwarded to Fla from Whitehouse. It takes 2-3 weeks of when he would get it at home.
