Confidential Mail

  1. Confidential Interoffice mail — To insure the proper handling of confidential interoffice mail, it is recommended that the sender use a sealed envelope or package material with a seal, and clearly mark the envelope/package as "Confidential". The intended recipient's name and office address should also be clearly marked. It is also recommended that the senders name and return address be clearly marked on the envelope/package.
  2. Confidential unsealed mail — It is recommended that confidential mail be sealed whenever possible before sending it to the Copymail Center to be metered and sent to the Post Office. If you are sending out a large mailing of confidential materials and would prefer to have the Copymail center staff seal the envelopes as they are being metered, it is recommended that you place the mailing in a sealed container (e.g., a paper box sealed with tape) before passing it to the Copymail center staff for delivery to the center. If required, you can coordinate a time to process the mailing of the confidential items with the Copymail center manager, and a representative from your department could be present while the mailing was being sealed and postmarked.
