    Strange. When I put in the tracking number it gives the "IE ERROR" page.

    Even if the page loads, tracking through USPS is next to worthless.

    I bought something on Ebay two weeks ago.
    The shipper gave me a tracking number which showed the item had left New York on July 18th and was in transit.
    It never had another scan.
    It was delivered yesterday but the tracking information still showed "Left New York on July 18th".
    Three hours after I had accepted the package, the tracking information was updated to show that the package had arrived at my local post office.

    Ten days from New York to Texas!
    The Pony Express could have done it quicker.

    Unless you pay for Global Express, you're unlikely to get anything more than 'Parcel left JFK on day/month/year'.

    When you control the mail you control the information!
