USPS can now send you pictures of your mail via email

This final note on the way out today which — I’ll be honest — I don’t fully understand.
I saw on Quartz this morning that the U.S. Postal Service is testing a new product.
It’s gonna send you an email with a picture of the envelopes of your letters.
We’ve known for a couple of years now that the USPS is photographing every letter and package it handles.
It helps in sorting the mail, apparently, in law enforcement as well.
But, seriously, what am I gonna do with a picture of an envelope that I’m gonna get in the mail in a couple of days?
