In hopes of making snail mail more convenient, the U.S. Postal Service will begin emailing customers pictures of their mail every morning, the USPS announced Monday.
The free Informed Delivery service will snap pictures of the exterior of letters and send them in an email so customers can know what’s in their mailbox that day. Though the service doesn’t yet cover magazines or packages, the agency says they may do so in the future. The USPS will not open any mail in the process.
The service has been available in Northern Virginia since 2014 but will expand to New York City in 2016 with a planned expansion shortly thereafter. Customers can sign up online for the email notifications.
