I sent something certified mail because I wanted some type of proof that it was delivered. I didn't want to require a signature though and the post office assured me that this way the person wouldn't have to sign anything but I would have proof of delivery.
Is this information correct? The receiver wanted it sent just through regular mail, so they wouldn't have to be there or go to the post office if they weren't there, but my husband said he really wanted some kind of proof of delivery.
Now the receiver said he never got it and I haven't found the certified mail number to be able to check.
Thanks, Diane. I was afraid of that although I don't know why the person would tell me it wasn't required. I told her emphatically that I didn't want to send it where the receiver would have to sign for it and she said as long as I didn't include a return receipt requested card with it, the post office would scan the certified mail number when it was delivered but would not require a signature so it would be delivered with the regular mail.
Does the post office offer any service that would allow me to send something this way?
Isn't there a box on the Certified Mail form for the sender to "waive" signature requirement? I've done that occassionally, but don't recall carrier or rate.
ETA - USPS has good information online, you could check there.
