What I really want is to be able to delete physical mail before it arrives. Maybe 1/10 pieces of mail is legit. For now, I'm trying to reduce unwanted mail through PaperKarma (https://www.paperkarma.com/). EDIT: Damn. They are closing PaperKarma in April. Any good alternatives to reducing unwanted physical mail spam?

Very similar to Outbox, a startup that digitized your mail before USPS essentially killed it. 🤔

@rrhoover USPS turned against Outbox when they threatened junk mail. This would give junk mail senders extra ad impressions via email. Email and mail spam combined!

Maybe before this feature, they can figure out how to track packages based on their own tracking numbers.

Just read about this on TC (h/t @fitztepper) Pretty cool example of taking something they already had the setup for and making it more valuable... I've definitely wanted to know whether or not it's worthwhile to check my mailbox before, this will certainly help! cc: @rrhoover who never checks his mail, maybe this was made for him?

Can't wait to get emails of my junk mail! But really this is great.
