What are the USPS rules regarding marking mail "return to sender"?

Answer

The USPS has many rules regarding what mail can be marked as 'return to sender.' The United States Postal Service will return things to the sender if they have been marked 'return to sender' by the recipient, and returned back to the Post Office. Other reasons include if the item inside the package is missing, if the address is invalid, or if the postage is insufficient. Insufficient addresses normally do not include the zip code or apartment number.
