One important benefit of this approach is that it preserves universal service, which is what we were discussing in the first place. If the NYC post office goes out of business it will create no disruption at all, because UPS will gladly provide service to every address there. Not true in Alaska which is an outlier, in every sense, and may need special consideration and a more tailored solution.

Does anyone know what the Postal dept does with mail that is not picked up by the person that it is addressed to ? My ancestor had a letter in 1842 that he had not picked up at the Lincolnton , NC post office per the newspaper article :
Mecklenburg Jeffersonian
Charlotte, North Carolina
Tue, Jul 12, 1842 – Page 3

Any ideas ?
