    I had a package posted os delivered by USPS and wasn't actually delivered until 7 days later and came in it's own "we're sorry for the condition" envelope.

    On behalf of my fellow Americans, we applaud your being our economy's Atlas.

    Please do not shrug...

    edit to add: I have 3 packages on the way (Breville shipped my baskets yesterday), plus a part on order for my roto tiller at the New Holland dealer, a part on order for my front end loader at the Kubota dealer, plus accessories to pick up for my weed eater at the Stihl dealer (just bought the weed eater this summer after getting tired of messing with the cheap made-for-Lowes stuff.)

    Can Amazon replace an email they've already sent you?

    Expected delivery date of a package was Oct 4 (Sunday!). Just after midnight Sunday I got an email from Amazon, and distinctly remember a curt little message like...

    We attempted to deliver your package and are now holding it for you. Contact USPS.

    The next day I read the THE SAME email again and it said:

    Hi Nancy,
    Unfortunately, USPS ran into an issue when attempting your delivery. They will try again.
    You can contact USPS for more information.


    I didn't think that was possible. Am I losing my mind? o_O
    .


    (Forgot to add: It arrived Tuesday, via USPS)

    We have something similar happen to us now and then (getting to be more often).
    Here is what happens with our package. Amazon will say that it is out for delivery, but the mail person just drives on by and doesn’t stop. Amazon then reports that it is still on the way, but running late. Sometimes, a different mail person is working the next day and brings the package, and sometimes not.
    The last time this happened, it arrived in Huntsville on Sunday, and was not delivered until Thursday/Friday of that week, because the mail person did not stop at our house.
    When we finally got the notice (about Wednesday night) to pick it up at the post office, and went there the following day, they said it was out for delivery that day.
    The mail person who finally brought it said that the carrier was not stopping for deliveries, and she had to deliver a lot of packages that had not been delivered all week.

    The mail used to be really great at delivery, but now, they are almost not dependable at all. Some packages never arrive, and Amazon will always either refund the money or send a replacement; but that is frustrating when you are expecting something to arrive and it does not get there as expected.

    I understand what happened. It's happened to me before because USPS doesn't deliver on Sat/Sun.

    The main point was: .Can Amazon change an email after they have sent it?

    I even took a look at the html code for the email but couldn't find a clue.

    That is not a good thing if companies can change emails, imo.

    Maybe I deleted the first email by accident, but I never do that on purpose, until I've received the package.

    As far as I know, there is no way to edit an email that you have already received. These days who knows what is possible, though I can't imagine why they'd go to the trouble. That first one sounds like it was sent by the USPS...??

    I believe that they may have that possibility. I used to have an email client that would allow me to edit or delete emails even after they were read. So I could send you an email, then delete it while it was in your inbox, or I could schedule emails to self-delete after a specific time. A later update on the same email client removed that ability so I had assumed that there was a legal issue with it, perhaps. However, I know that the technology exists for it.

    Nancy Hart,

    I received an e/mail saying "" Your Amazon password needs to be reset; please, write a new password." They provided an space.

    I immediately contacted Amazon by phone and they asked me to forward the e/mail to them while assuring me my account was perfectly protected. What open my suspicions was the fact Amazon doesn't ask you to create a password to open an account.

    I just got a similar email on Monday phishing for my PayPal passwords. Damned thieves.

    edit to add: These comments made me go look in my email's SPAM folder. I got another phishing PayPal email yesterday, but my SPAM filter caught it. Unbelievable.

    (Sorry for the slightly off-topic comment, but an online shopping thread is a good place to remind folks to be on guard for this stuff. At least, that's my story...)

    Yesterday, I got one too. In Spam folder, supposedly from Amazon, saying there was a problem with my method of payment, and to log in HERE. URL indicated it was not from Amazon.

    Well, maybe I misunderstood the guy from India who answered the phone; the point is my account is secure. Please...

    John,
