    just like the mail with IMPORTANT on the envelope
    just like the emails with IMPORTANT in the subject header
    just like the customer service cue, "your call is important to us"

    I appreciate when they do that; goes right to the recycle bin. Saves me the trouble of opening it.

    Any mail delivered without my address on it (I.e. spam junk mail from the postman) is collected and retuned to them via the post box.

    My postman would just put it back in my box. They're lazy. (That sounds better than the truth, which is that I'm too lazy to walk it back to the mailbox when the bin is right there).

    My mail goes into a PO box at the Post Office (I refuse to have street delivery). PO box has a yellow sticker, meaning only correctly-named mail goes in the box. PO sorter has the list of names. I never even see all the rubbish. Very civilised. 😀

    I have a sign on my mailbox saying I only accept mail that is addressed personally to me.

    I hardly ever receive unwanted mail, my mailbox is mostly empty.

    Kewpie, this "yellow sticker" and the "PO sorter" appear to provide the same safety measure as an RHP Iggy. Cool.

    Sorry for the delay but I was opening all my other IMPORTANT mail. I won something from Reader's Digest and I got a 10% discount card from La Senza and it appears that I have $4,000,000 waiting for me in Nigeria.

    For those of you who can't see beyond the end of your nose, the "junk" mail helps support the postal service.

    It was just announced here in "THE GREAT WHITE NORTH" that home mail delivery in cities will stop shortly in favour of clusters of mailbox "apartments"...progress eh?

    I can't read your post for some reason. 😛
