Where Does Lost Mail GO?
Someone emailed me recently regarding undeliverable mail for insufficient postage, that had no return address on it.
I mailed out a bunch of requests last week.
With the postage change, what do you think usually happens when the person goes to return the SASE if there's not enough postage?
Sometimes they dont' put a return address on it. does this mean the package doesn't get returned?

I decided to look around for information on the web, and found some startling information.
When you place a return address in the upper left hand corner of your Through The Mail (TTM) Autograph request, if for some reason it can't be delivered, the letter can then be returned to that address.
If there isn't a return address on a piece of mail that can not be delivered, these are treated as "dead mails".
The United States Postal Service has mail recovery centers, located in Atlanta, Georgia and Saint Paul, Minnesota, to deal with undeliverable mail (Dead Mails).
If the United States Postal Service notices the contents of the package has significant value, they supposedly make an attempt to return the package to the sender.
Items that cannot be returned are sold at auctions held every month in the Atlanta Mail Recovery Center located at.
