You can see both My USPS and Informed Delivery under the same USPS login. After signing into usps.com: - My USPS (https://my.usps.com) now shows tabs for mail. - Under "Hi, <your name>", My Profile, Preferences, both are under Account Management. (For each service, you check "I certify to the United States Postal Service that I am entitled to receive this service at the address shown below".)
Thanks - never heard of this service but what a great idea. Just signed up. I was a little put off that they had to pull my credit report to verify my identity (WTF?), would rather have just done that in person had I known...

It required a street address, so when I added that, they pulled my credit report and asked me questions about it ("Which one of these was your employer?" "Which one of these companies gave you a loan in 2012?"). I prefer not having my credit report pulled unnecessarily but wasn't given the choice.

This service is pretty cool. I signed up a few weeks ago. It didn't show anything for the first week and I thought it was borked. So don't freak out if it takes a while to start working.
It's very Handy for me, it lets me know if an important letter, check, etc. is in the mailbox. Especially helpful if I'm out of town, I can monitor the mailbox and only bother a friend to pick it up when something important is there.
Note it only shows "letter size" mail. But it's been accurate for me so far. You can receive daily emails in the morning (check your spam folder), or just check on the website.

NOW, since I can see what's going to be delivered, it's not that much further for me to swipe left or click a box and mark the mail as junk from within the e-mail, right? How quickly could we have junk returned to sender? Before it's even delivered! I vote for "Informed REfusal" service.
I received an email from the USPS a few years ago offereing me this service (It was a click through to accept that you want it, no link I could post for people to sign up). It seems to provide scans of most mail up to a certain size (Readers Digest size mail including magazines and ads, yes. Regular size magazines and larger, like 8'X11' envelopes, no.). It seems that the emails have become spotty very recently, sometimes no email received, but mail received, sometimes a bunch of things that fall within the ordinarily included mail size, like regaular envelopes, not included in the email. But it's still useful, especially if you're away.
I also signed up Tuesday and got photos this am, It does work for all at our address, my wife is the Condo Treasure, a letter addressed to the Condo Assn was pictured, as was two for me, 2 for her, and of course Iams sent Fuzzy <cat> a postcard coupon
Nothing worth the long walk, in the rain, so we will see if 2morrow brings something of value
I had to go to the Post Office last week to do an in-person verification.
Now when I login to MyUSPS website or the iOS app, it shows my identity has been successfully verified but what happens next? I am unable to see my packages on the website or the app. I have also not received any email since the verification was completed last week.

It might take longer in your case since you required an in-person verification.

Before it was not possible to know if you lost any mail being an unknown unknown (or was it a known unknown?). PerhapsWe live in a 16 condo complex with one common lock-box mailboxThe route carriers are constantly getting the mail in the incorrect boxes, we complained about 5 times to the postmaster and we never got it solved. I get at least 3-5 pieces of other people mail every week in my box, and other members seem to show up at my door at least weekly with some of mine.
bobbybore said: I've had this service for a few months and it usually works well. I have had my mail go to neighbor's mailboxes in the past so this service is nice to see if an important piece of mail is on the way. Only problem is that you only get the images of the regular sized envelops and not the larger one's.For example, in today's mail I got important documents in 9"x 12" envelops but only got the scans of #10 mail.
