USPS Hold Mail, a service which most of the USPS customers are using. It is an amazing service, or we can say the facility for the customers of the United States Postal Service because by using this service, anyone can enjoy the holidays or attend business meetings held out of town without worrying about the mail. Submit the request once, and the postal service will hold your mail (for a limited time). Once you are back, all your accumulated mail will be delivered to you, or you can pick up from the post office. It’s up to you, and you can choose any of these two options while submitting the request.
This service has lots of benefits and some limitations too, and if you want to know more about this service, then you may read a detailed article on Hold Mail where everything is available regarding this amazing service.

However, there are various ways through which you can change or cancel the request, but in this article, we’ll only learn to change or cancel the hold mail request in person. You may also do this online (if submitted the request online) or over the phone by calling 1-800-ASK-USPS® (1-800-275-8777).
Let’s find out how you can change or cancel the request at the post office or in person:
Firstly, visit your local post office after finding out the USPS working and closing hours. Ask the clerk to change or cancel the request according to your requirements. You may change the hold mail starting and the ending dates if the service is not running and if the service is running (or your mail is held at the post office), then you can only change the end date. You can also change the mail acceptance method after the end date. If you don’t want to hold your mail, then cancel the request.
