What can I do in regards XXXXX XXXXX offensive mail via the Post Office? The mail is religiously offensive in nature.
Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.

Have you notified the sender to be removed from their mailing lists?

They dont address my address directly, it is the "bulk mail" that the postal carrier just grabs one and throws it in the mailbox. It is done the same way as the bulk of the ad flyers going to the mailbox.


All of this bulk ad mail is offensive to me in religious nature.


I get at least 4-6 (sometimes more) local religious organizations using this bulk ad mail process to shove their ad into my mailbox.


Thank you for your reply.

If it is not targeted advertising mail, which you can opt out of by contacting the Federal Trade Commission at, then to stop the bulk mail all you can do is file a complaint with the US Postal Service and the postal inspector's office to get them to stop your mail carrier from leaving you such mail. Before you call the post office to ask them to stop, speak to your letter carrier and your postmaster general at your local post office, if that does not work then complain to the postal inspector as that is the only way to stop the mass junk mails from going to your address as the letter carrier simply puts one in every mailbox.
