This service can only track your package to a specific city and zip code. It does not track to a specific delivery address.
I've gotten this same information from a post office in Wisconsin and just this week checked here in California to be sure the info hasn't changed.
But I kind of had to drag this specific info out of the clerk. I'm sure she wanted to collect the money for the service if she could. But that kind of service is a waste of money for two reasons:
1) For delivery confirmation, I can contact the person I'm mailing the package to and ask them if it was received...for free.
2) If this service cannot track to the address delivered to, there's no hope of getting a mis-delivered package back or delivered correctly...unless the recipient is honest and caring and returns it to the post office out of the goodness of their heart.
I know lots of folks are not going to believe me on this, so all you need do is ask a postal worker when you mail your package. But be sure to ask very specifically if the package can be tracked to the specific physical address it was delivered to.
You'll get information that your package was delivered within the city it was addressed and within the zip code it was addressed and on what date and at what time, but you will not be able to find out exactly what address it was delivered to.
With the many varied swaps going on all over the world, the post office makes pretty big money on this service that does you no good. I cannot count the number of times I've read that someone mailed their work with delivery confirmation and tracking. I just shake my head and hope for them that it doesn't get mis-delivered, because this service will not help find where that package went.
May all our mail be delivered properly!
