How Stop Mail Online

If you plan on being out-of-town for awhile the United States Postal Service (USPS) recommends stopping your daily mail delivery. If you are able to receive mail at your location, a better option may be a temporary mail-forwarding service. Either way, some action must be taken; you don’t want stacks of mail piling up at your front door or in your mailbox. While you can make your request at your nearest post office, an online request is faster and more convenient. usps change of address
