Incoming Mail

When opening mail delivered to your specific office, please take a moment to confirm that the piece of mail has been delivered to the correct address before opening. Despite our best efforts, occasionally a piece of mail is misdirected. As a courtesy, if you inadvertently open mail that is misdirected, please put a note on it from you notifying the department who it belongs to.

Outgoing Mail

  • Do not Hand Write Addresses. Envelopes addressed this way cannot be sent presort, resulting in higher mailing cost.
  • Use an OCR readable font; helvetica and univers fonts are acceptable. Courier and times roman fonts are not acceptable. Use a 1-12 point size per inch. Please contact the mailroom if you have a question.
  • All outgoing mail must have the department name or individual’s name as part of the return address.
