If you're already in your new address' city, you could rent out a Post Office box and use that as your forwarding address. Another option is to submit a hold mail request, which would hold the mail until it is picked up. A third option is to forward the mail to a general delivery, but the local post office should be contacted for more information on their general delivery policy. This is a link to the hold mail form on the USPS website:

Can you cancel your snail mail from USPS?

The United States Postal Service will deliver all mail. In that sense, no one can "cancel" mail delivery. There are, however, two ways to temporarily stop mail. 1. If going away for several days or longer, you can put your mail delivery on hold. The person must usually pick up the accumulated mail and sign for mail delivery to resume. 2. If you move, you are not bound to fill out a change of address card. However, all legitimate companies can still get your address by other means.

Can an ex legally destroy any mail that is to your attention but goes to his address?

Your ex should be forwarding your mail to your new address. That is the legal situation. However, he is not, so your best action now that you know, is to send a move notice to the post office, in your name, which will be valid for one year. Usually that is plenty of time for important mail to be forwarded. Be sure to also notify your health, life and car insurance companies that your address has been changed; many times this sort of mail cannot be forwarded and will be returned to the sender. Answer No, but here's a question for you - why haven't you notified the post office to stop delivery to your ex's address and instructed them to re-route your mail - OR - notified all your correspondents of your new address? Your ex probably SHOULD be marking it as "undeliverable" and returning it to his mail carrier, but I'm betting that there is much more to this situation than is being revealed here.

I moved to the new address 15 months ago. If someone sends me a mail to my old address it will be returned to the sender with my new address. Can I stop USPS to notify the sender of my new address?

* In Canada (should not vary in the U.S.) if you don't notify your friends or family of your new address and mail comes to you (including USPS) they return the mail (including packages) to the sender and not put your new address on it because they are only a delivery service and not related to the phone companies (phone book). It would be wise of you to get a Box number for your mail and pick it up yourself.

What is the easiest way to stop spam?

Sorry to tell you this but if you received a spam (Unsolicited Commercial E-Mail) there is no "easy" way to get the spam stopped. Generally if you reply (unsubscribe) this confirms that your e-mail address is "live" and just gets your e-mail address sold to other spammers. Spam has to be dealt with one at a time. Sorry, it isn't easy to stop the spam. The "Internet" (the collective non-profit and profit entities of the network) is trying to fix this problem but it is taking time. The "easiest" way to stop getting spam is to change your e-mail address and only give your e-mail address to people you absolutely trust, and to NEVER allow the e-mail address to be posted to a web site or posted ANYWHERE on the internet. If your e-mail address shows up on a search engine, then the spammers can find your e-mail address also. Be careful about giving your e-mail address to companies that purport to be against spam. There are businesses that make a good living filtering out spam both on a personal and corporate level. I would suggest that if you really don't want to deal with spam that you get an e-mail address from one of these services (Please note I am not recommending this service, just using it as an example). Do a search: Be aware that no spam blocking software (as of yet) is perfect and you may get "false positives". An e-mail from a friend may be detected as spam and may get deleted as spam or moved to the spam box. If you are required to give a "legal" e-mail address to a company you don't know or trust, you could go to or a similar site and set up a free account.
