Accountable Mail Services Resumes!
The Bursar's office reopened for business on July 6, and Campus Mail Services also resumed accountable mail service for needed deposits on the same date.
Before you submit an accountable mail request for delivery to another office, please be sure that office is open and accessible for business.
Resuming Pickup and Delivery to Your Department
Once an office is open and the building is accessible for business, the head of the department or the office manager must contact Mail Services to restart mail service. They will proceed to notify USPS to resume service to the department. Each department will need to contact other independent delivery services such as UPS, FedEx, and DHL to resume pickup and delivery.
To notify Mail Services to restart service, please email the following information to firstname.lastname@example.org or Bo Shipley, Manager, IUB Mail Services at email@example.com:
