WASHINGTON (AP) _ People who want their mail held or need to schedule a package delivery can now arrange for the service online.
The Postal Service said Monday it has added those services to its web page at www.usps.com.
To have mail held just click on ``Hold Mail'' and provide the necessary information. Mail can be held for from three to 30 days for people on vacation or away from home for other reasons.
People who receive a notice of attempted delivery for an item that needs a signature or is too large for their mailbox can also schedule that a new delivery attempt by clicking on ``Receive Mail and Packages.''
As usual, stamps and other postal services can also be purchased at the web page.
