It has been possible to announce parcels via DHL for some time after registration. Deutsche Post DHL Group is now also introducing letter notification via post and the DHL app, so you not only know in advance which letters will be delivered, but also see a picture of the envelope.
Free registration via app
Since the offer of the Letter Announcement has only been available to GMX and Web.D users via PGP-encrypted e-mail since mid-2020, the content of the Letter is also part of the Announcement as a “digital copy”. PDF If desired – everyone can now register for free for the announcement via the Post and DHL app. However, there is no preview of the contents of the letter through the app. After entering the name and address, Deutsche Post DHL Group will send a letter for registration with a twelve-digit confirmation code, which is required to authenticate the address in the app. Anyone who has already verified their address within the last six months, for example for parcel notification, need not do so again, but can use the service immediately after registration. Hence the process is similar to registering for package announcement.
Announcement of letters and parcels
To be able to start registration, the new version 8.0 of the Post and DHL app is required for ios or for Android Important. In the new version, the app is again divided into two tabs “Tracking” and “Track” tab for parcels, “Letter Notifications”. Anyone who in the morning of the future wants to know what unpleasant bills or letters from the tax office or long-awaited letters are waiting in the mailbox in the evening, now will have the opportunity to do so – and then can consciously walk past Mailbox is best be happy about delayed or long-awaited letters.
photos from the sorting center
During the registration process, Deutsche Post reported that the user would also be provided with photographs of the envelopes in advance through the app. These envelope photos are created automatically during sorting in mail centers. It has been pointed out that these photographs may also contain information that goes beyond the address, for example if the envelope has been extra labeled or if it is a postcard. Confidentiality must nevertheless be maintained and freedom from postal secrecy extends only to the extent that is absolutely necessary for the provision of the service, but not beyond that.
According to Deutsche Post DHL Group, more than one million customers are already using letter announcement via Web.de and GMX.
