Anyone know?

I've tried using the "Return to Sender" option. Doesn't seem to work.
I tried contacting the post office - they did it for 3 months or so and stopped. They also refused to notsend pre-paid bulk-mail, or mail sent to "or current resident".

I can't contact the previous owner (no frikkin' clue wtf they went).

I figured after awhile the mail would die down. It's been almost 4 years now and they still get more junk mail than I do.

Post Office will always deliver bulk mail, it's a large part of our revenue.

As far as getting mail for old owner, poopoo on your mail carrier. By law he's only suppose to deliver mail to the person's name that's on the mailbox. Call and complain to the supervisor.

We only have numbers on our mailboxes (very few people here put their names on their boxes). If I were to place my last name on the box, does that help, or does my name need to be in my local post office's system?

BTW - thanks for the input, PT!

You don't have to contact the Post Office. I would put your surname on the mailbox and leave a note letting your carrier know that you only want mail delivered for that name.

If your carrier has changed at all in the past year, chances are he doesn't know exactly who lives with you so he's just going to deliver everything he gets. Also his wheel (the person that does the route on his day off) has no idea who lives with you either.
