Is the Postal Service Accurately Reporting Delayed Mail?

The U.S. Postal Service considers mail to be delayed when it is not processed in time to meet the established delivery day. Postal Service personnel do a daily manual count, self-report delayed mail, and enter the information into the Mail Condition Reporting System.
