I was supposed to get a book delivered to me today. Our mail did not run until about 5:40 p.m. central time and the book did not arrive. I knew it was delivery confirmation and I went to check it on this website and the postal website and it stated that it was undeliverable as addressed with the time of 2:34 p.m. eastern/1:34 p.m. central some four hours before our mail was delivered. Could it be that the post office sorted it wrong or was it really undeliverable as addressed?

I have sent the sender a personal message concerning this matter and am awaiting to hear back from them.

Has anybody out there ever had this happen to them?

Sounds like somebody hit the wrong button on the scanner.

That wouldn't surprise me in the least-it has happened to me before and it will and has probably happened again.

When a carrier has a package that is undeliverable they are not the person who scans it that way. It is left in the office for a clerk to handle later in the day. It will be scanned by the clerk with the proper reason for non-delivery and returned to the mailstream that day. I hope this answers your question.
