Picture this - Two hours before your snail mail is delivered you receive and e-mail from the Post Office. When you open it - Shazam - you are looking at the front of each envelope that will arrive in your mailbox later in the day.

The US Post Office recently announced "Informed Delivery". This service makes this all available. In addition, you will receive information on any packages that will be delivered that day - along with historical information regarding deliveries to you.
