I thought so too but not to a business address. You can forward it to a business but not back to your home address.

We have the person staying at our S&B forward our mail once we are in a place where time permits the transfer.

Just received, via Fed Ex 3 Day, a package with 2 months worth of mail. Expensive? Depends on what you think is. It's not like this is done every week so we can wait for the forward when we want to receive.

We got lucky. When we called our post office to confirm what we read, and personally knowing the postmaster, he bundles our mail once a week and mails it to us. Next year we will have to use a near by post office and rent a post office box or pay the larger fee around 17.00 per week to have the mail forwarded.

You can't.

If you're using a mail forwarding service and stop, you have to send change of address notice to everyone that was sending mail to your PMB.

I kept my PMB for 6 months or so after I stopped fulltiming and moved back into a house. Finally no more mail was going to my PMB and I closed it.

No trees were harmed in the transmission of this message, but millions of electrons were temporarily inconvenienced.

When I was going to my Floridia residence for several months at a time, I used PO mail forwarding, but I never got junk mail forwarded. But for the past few years, after we sold the Florida place, and while on the road, we do not physically forward anything. All of our bills are paid online and all of my deposits are made direct. All of our service companies bill online and I never get physical bank or cc statements. 99.9% of my stuff is done electronically, I don't remember when I last wrote a check.

My neighbor collects mail in my box and if anything seems like it should have my attention, such as a summons, jury duty notice, license renewal etc. He will send me an e-mail and tell me what is there. If I want to see what was sent, he will open it at my request, scan it and I have it right away. I don't get much mail that needs this done to it.

The post office service has lost its importance to me.
