I just got a package back marked No Such Address. Once I get the correct address do I have to attached new postage on the package or can I use the stamps that are already stuck on the package? Anyone know? If not, I'll truck up to the post office, but don't want to do that right now! Thanks

If it is First Class Postage, I don't think that you do - I always just correct the problem and hand it back to the mail person.  I am not sure about Media Mail, though.

I ended up having to go to the post office so asked them. You're right - if it was sent first class no problem, just readdress and send it again. Since mine was sent media mail I have to put new postage on the package. :(
