If the intended recipient is not available to accept delivery, the postal worker leaves behind an orange slip. The identity of the sender should be indicated in the top right-hand corner. If a person is not available for delivery and the identity of the sender is left off the orange slip, the recipient can contact the post office and ask for the sender's identity using a tracking number on the "not available for delivery" orange slip.

    What happens to undelivered USPS packages?

    A:

    If a package is undeliverable, the USPS returns it to the sender. The post office sends packages which are both undeliverable and not returnable to the sender to dead mail for further processing in order to return them to the sender or addressee. When the USPS declares a package as dead mail, they have the right to violate the secrecy of correspondence to find its origin or intended destination.

    What causes undelivered mail to be returned to the sender?

    A:

    When mail sent from the U.S. is unable to reach its destination, the United States Postal Service, or USPS, will mark it as "undelivered mail returned to sender." There are exceptions to this, such as when the mail is a normal letter, or when a customs department within the country the mail is sent to requests abandonment.
