Your letter carrier has no vote in who gets mail at your address. He just needs to be delivering anything that has your address on it regardless of the name.

It's not the letter carrier,there are USPS rules, she just has a stickler. Putting a list of people/organizations you are accepting mail for inside the box where the carrier can see it will usually solve most problems.

My Dad used to deliver in a neighborhood with lots of college students. He wouldn't deliver mail unless their names were on the mailboxes because students moved so often and didn't always bother with change of address forms.

You really want your personal and confidential info delivered to strangers because someone put the wrong address on an envelope?
