Forwarding mail is only supposed to be good for a year, so in order to stop all the  mail, I guess you’d have to see if you can contact the PO where its coming from and ask them what to do next. If its nothing important, why not have the new people just trash it?

USPS should have forwarded all your mail, and you should have followed up with everyone you recieve mail from to change your address: banks, jobs, credit cards, etc. Try submitting another mail forwarding request to USPS.

@Christy42213:  I agree you need to change your address with anyone who sends you mail (subscriptions, mailing lists not just creditors)

I’ve had that happen to me – it took speaking to the mail carrier and the local post office directly to get it to stop. If you know the time frame that mail gets delivered at your old place on a Saturday, it might be worth lurking around to speak to them. And worth a trip to the actual post office that services your old place! Such a hassle, I know 🙁

@SouthernGirl:  Return it all to sender with not known at this address on it and then they will remove you from the mailing list.

in australia, in similar situation, you can ask your friend to write, this person does  not live here anymore on the letter and post it back. just make sure that none of those are important
