Scan Mailboxes is a virtual mailbox service that allows people to read and manage their postal mail and packages on their phones. What is a virtual mailbox and how can it help you? Virtual mailbox services allow you to have your USPS mail delivered to a central location – such as the Scan Mailboxes office in Austin, Texas. Scan Mailboxes will then scan your mail and securely upload the mail to your virtual mailbox which is accessible on a computer, tablet or phone. You can then read your mail and provide handling instructions – such as hold for pickup, shred, or forward. A virtual mailbox is different than a PO box in a number of ways. Virtual mailboxes can be used to receive package deliveries, as an official registered address for businesses, and would not require you to physically visit the PO box to check your mail.
