Interesting Anniversaries Department


Did you know that ten years ago today, the U.S. Postal Service began enforcing regulations about appropriately designating mail addressed to a Private Mail Box, or PMB for short?

(In essence, the Postal Service wants to make sure that people sending things - like money - to a Private Mail Box, like, say, a UPS Store box, know that the recipient is a PMB and not a swank set of offices. So for anything sent through the mail where the address is in fact a PMB, but not marked as such on the envelope/package and thus the sender may not know it's a PMB, the Postal Service will return it and indicate why, giving the sender a chance to reconsider in light of the information.)
