History

Has a human ever been mailed via the United States Postal Service?

Actually, yes. Shortly after parcel post was introduced in the early 1900s, several parents sent their small children though the mail. This was done with the help of sympathetic postal workers, most commonly over short distances in rural areas. And it was cost effective—in 1913, it cost just 15 cents to mail an 8-month-old baby to his grandmother.

Before you get any big ideas, though, know that the fun came to an end in 1920 when the postmaster general officially outlawed sending people through the mail. How lame.

How long to ship USPS Florida to Pennsylvania?

That depends on what method you use to mail it. Express mail typically overnight any where on the east coast, to the east coast. Priority can be 2-3 business days, parcel post can range from a day, to a week depending on how much mail the USPS is handling at that time. First class mail from FL to me (I live in Lackawanna county PA) is usually a day or two unless its around Christmas.

How many houses does united states postal service own?

While the Postal Service holds much property, including Postal stations/branches and processing facilities, as well as extensive land holdings for future growth (in a Land Bank), the Post Office does not own residential houses. The United States Postal Service (USPS) is an "independent agency" of the United States government, established from its predecessor the U.S. Post Office Department, in 1971 as an independent establishment of the executive branch responsible for providing postal services within the United States, according to John Zodrow, who authored the textbook Postal Service Labor Arbitrations. "The USPS is funded through the sales of products and services, and receives no direct taxpayer funds. It is not a corporation, per se. It is still an agency of the federal government."

What is a certified letter?

A certified letter is guaranteed by the postal service to be delivered to the recipient. A form is filled out at the post office that contains the name of the sender and the person/place where the letter is sent. The sender receives a receipt and can request they be notified when delivery is made. When delivery is made the a person must sign for accepting the mail. The cost is more than ordinary postage, but it gives the sender proof of having sent the material. Actually the letter is not guaranteed to be delivered to the recipient if it is sent via certfied mail. Anyone who answers the door at the address can sign for the letter if it is not sent via restricted mail, which can only be signed by the recipient or I believe anyone who can produce legal papers of guardianship of said recipient. This method of mailing is also more expensive by several dollars (about 5, I think give or take).

What is a passing grade on the US Postal Exam?

On all U.S. Postal exams the passing score 70 and 100 is the top score and that does not include veteran's points. It is important to remember that although 70 is a pass, the exam is competitive which ultimately means that you could get a passing score but still not get hired because the rest of the testing group had higher marks than you. It is a common belief that to have a chance of getting a follow-up interview requires a score of 80 to 85. It is a good idea to prepare for the exam using a study program. There are quite a few available. I used www.aceyourpostalexam.com and it was great.

How do you write a certified letter?

You write your letter as usual, then mail it Certified, at a US Post Office. Be certain, though, as you would for any business or legal matter, that your letter contains the name and address of both yourself and recipient, and is dated. You do not mark the letter itself "Certified," although you may note in the body text that you are mailing the letter Certified. Seal and address your letter as usual. At the Post Office, obtain and fill out a Certified Mail form. You likely also want to use a Return Receipt form. Your cost at the window will be the postage cost of sending your letter (which must be sent either First-Class Mail or Priority Mail), plus the Certified Mail fee of $2.65, plus a Return Receipt fee, if you desire this service, of $0.85 for email confirmation or $2.15 for confirmation by mail. These are the costs in effect at this time, June of 2007.
