Hey, wait a minute, Mr. Postman.
It’s going to take more than daily box stuffing to make this relationship work.
And lately, the red flags (AARP pamphlets, a lack of concern for the environment) have us looking for a better arrangement.
Outbox, a new-to-SF digital mail-organizing service, gets our stamp of approval.
To begin, sign up for an account (the first month is free). Then, kick the habit of checking your mailbox (if you ever had one).
Every three days, a dapper unpostman pulls up in a white Prius to collect your mail. Within 24 hours, every bill, postcard, and unwanted ad is scanned and saved to your personal online account. From there, save, store, and share what you want; request birthday cards and the like to be returned the old-fashioned way. Packages and magazines are placed at your doorstep.
Outbox also cracks the whip against junk mail: Simply choose the “Unsubscribe from Sender” option.
They ain’t afraid of no post.
Available at outboxmail.com, $5 a month.
