Unaddressed mail - Junk mail!

If you would like to stop receiving (junk) mail that is not addressed to you, either ring 08457 740740, or email: optout@royalmail.com,

At the time of writing (August 2006) the service is receiving an unprecendented number of requests because of the publicity surrounding the suspended postman who 'advertised' the service on his rounds. Will they dare to sack him?! RM will now only stop the 'door to door' deliveries on receipt of a completed form which you will receive by email if you contact them that way. The text accompanying the form warns of 'consequences' such as not receiving important goverment literature. But the independent consumer body Postwatch described the threat - which angry customers say is blackmail - as 'completely untrue'.

Apparently they will not accept the form back by email. They require that it is posted. I can't see why a stamp should be neccessarythough as they are legally obliged to deliver it and can collect the charge from themselves. You might feel that you may as well write in the first place. Here is the address:

Door to Door Opt Out, Royal Mail, Kingsmead House, Oxpens Road, Oxford, OX1 1RX.
