Leslie, that used to be true, but not any longer.
Now- over 13 oz,(with only stamps as postage) MUST be taken into a retail counter and handed to a sales assoc. They are not supposed to be left on a counter. They are not supposed to be handed to a carrier, or left in your own mailbox.
If carriers are taking those packages still they are doing so against regulation imposed on the PO by the FAA, for security reasons. USPS will probably be pushing hard on all carriers and other employees to abide by this restriction, because the FAA has the ability to tell USPS that they can no longer use commercial airlines for any mail. If that happens USPS is pretty well scr***d because we then have to rely on the competition to transport any non-ground mail for us.
