I had my packages delivered to the wrong address in Ottumwa Iowa and they did it intentionally this is wrong and crooked as hell. They stole the most expensive packages a female employee I’ve never seen before


I put in a change of address three weeks ago and haven't got my mail yet


I have moved to a different city and I don't want any incoming mail being delivered to my old address what do I need to do?


I have packages comin from Amazon thru usps. Your app days Sunday by 9 pm yet I chedk and says it's still at facility. Getting really tired of getting a date and usps dnt get it out or lose it.


Dear Ottumwa post office: thank you for continuing to deliver our letters and packages. However, may I make a request? Would it be possible not to shove my package on my mailbox? My plant therapy package was shoved so it can fit my mailbox and as a result, the box of my body oil was smashed and body oil leaked.


I want to thank all the people who work for the post office for getting out and delivering our mail to all of us. It is very much appeciated.
