UPS Mail Innovations and their sidekick FedEx SmartPost are the spawn of
the devil. An un-holy alliance of ground and postal delivery---taking all
the bad points of each and combining them into one massive cluster@$#k.
I'm in ther same boat---if it's mail delivery it's a PO box, no residential
mail delivery here. Street address is for truck delivery.
Mail Innovations and SmartPost will NOT accept a PO box as a delivery
address, because it starts off on a truck. THEN they hand it off to the
post office, which won't deliver to a street address. Grrrrrrrrrrrr.
There is a form you can fill out at the post office that links your PO box
number to your street address, works if they remember to look at it before bouncing the item back to sender.
