DO NOT use the term "Box#" - Since 2013 it causes USPS processing delays of your incoming mail (more detail link). Automated USPS processing systems read an addressee and auto-sorts mail starting from the bottom line, upwards. Place your "MSC" next to recipients’ name or dept name. Subscription formats vary widely you may need to put MSC__ in the field for "Room/Ste". If youre still using the term "Box"# (link to more detail), you're causing delays in your own incoming USPS mail!

Mail Services Tip to improve your incoming mail processing time:

Experiencing incoming USPS Mail delays? Often caused by using the word "Box#" or having it appear on the street address line of your mailing address. USPS automated systems 'read' the word Box and process the mail to a USPS PO Box #  causing mail processing delays. We began informing all Downstate offices in November 2013, but many have still not yet corrected their mailing address and stationery with your department's regular correspondents, as follows:

Act NOW to help avoid delays

Failure to correct mail lists and subscriptions causes the problem to just gets worse in future as mail lists are bought and sold.
