USPS Testing Service That Shows Customers Photos Of Their Mail

As often as the USPS loses my mail, I think something like this could be a good thing. I just wonder how much time this will add to mail delivery if everyone opts in.

The service known as Informed Delivery آ— which has been live in some parts of Northern Virginia since 2014 آ— is spreading to the New York City metro area, the USPS says, with plans to expand elsewhere in 2016. Informed Delivery is free, but you have to opt in online, and it won’t work for packages, only letter-sized envelopesآ… at least not yet: the agency says it could include scans of packages at some point as well.
