YEP!


Delivery Confirmation is now called "Tracking"

BUT seems to still be Delivery Confirmation

Copy & Paste from USPS site >>

If you shipped with Express Mail®, you’ll get point-by-point tracking details. If you used another service—USPS Tracking™, Certified Mail™, Registered Mail™ —you’ll see when it went out for delivery.

A PO Box address is very safe...item is secure and only the addressee or their agent can accept it. Much safer than the carrier leaving the item at someone's door.

Next to sending yout item with an armed guard delivery to  a P.O. box is the safest way to go.       Very much safer than a street address where the  package may be left at the door in plain sight.
