Express Mail/First-Class Mail
HOLDING PERIOD FOR ORDINARY MAIL Undeliverable mail for which there is an indication that the individual is due to arrive is held for 15 days past the anticipated arrival date.  If unclaimed at that time, determine the individual’s status by contacting the gaining unit or the military or civilian personnel office, and make disposition accordingly. If there is no status  change,  return  the  mail  to  sender  endorsed “ATTEMPTED—NOT KNOWN.” If there is no indication of a due-in date, but you have reason to believe the individual is due to arrive because the mail is being forwarded, the sender has the same last name, or for some similar reason, hold it for 30 days.    If the mail is still unclaimed at that time, attempt to  determine  the  individual’s  status  through appropriate  channels  and  dispose  of  the  mail accordingly.  If mail is still undeliverable, return it  to  sender  endorsed  “ATTEMPTED—NOT KNOWN.” All  hold  mail  should  be  screened  against  the directory files at least weekly. HOLDING PERIOD FOR ACCOUNTABLE MAIL The retention of accountable mail will be handled as follows:    Undeliverable  Express  Mail  is  held  no  longer than 5 workdays (less than 5 if indicated by the mailer).    Undeliverable registered, insured, certified, and return  receipt  for  merchandise  mail  is  held  a maximum of 15 days (less than 15 if indicated by the mailer).    If  a  return  receipt  is  attached  to  registered, numbered insured, or certified mail that is to be returned, the reason for nondelivery should be indicated on the return receipt.  Leave the return receipt on the article and return the article to the mailer.  Registered mail is returned through the registered mail system. When forwarding or returning accountable mail, indicate disposition of the article on PS Form 3849. UNDELIVERABLE-AS-ADDRESSED MAIL Usually nondelivery of mail is because of one of the following reasons:    Incomplete, illegible, or incorrect address    Addressee not at address, moved, or deceased    Hold mail unclaimed    Mail  refused  by  the  addressee  at  the  time  of delivery    Mail refused by the addressee after delivery Q11-1. What is the primary purpose of mail directory service? Q11-2. What Navy commands must provide directory service? Q11-3. What  OPNAV  form  is  used  as  a  directory card? Q11-4. In what order are directory cards filed? Q11-5. How  long  should  you  maintain  a  directory card before purging? Q11-6. The   directory   service   stamp   should   not exceed what size limits? Q11-7. Normally, for what period of time is ordinary mail  held  past  the  due-in  date  of  a  military member? Q11-8. At   least   how   often   should   hold   mail   be screened against the directory files? Q11-9. If no specific hold period is requested by the mailer  on  a  registered  mail  article,  for  what maximum  period  of  time  should  it  be  held  if not deliverable? Now turn to appendix 1 to check your answers. PROCESSING UNDELIVERABLE-AS-ADDRESSED MAIL Learning  Objective: Recall   the   proper processing  procedures  for  the  various  classes of mail requiring directory service. Because directory service is provided differently for each class or type of mail, you will need to identify each  piece  of  directory  mail  to  provide  for  proper disposition.   In this section the procedures to follow when processing each class or type of undeliverable-as-addressed mail will be discussed. 11-7
