  2. Interoffice mail is sorted as soon as it is returned to the Mail Center and is also normally delivered the following morning.

The Physical Plant trucks normally leave the Mail Center at approximately 10:00 a.m. to begin the three university mail routes. If you have interoffice mail which must reach another department the same day please bring it to the Mail Center before 9:00 a.m.
