I received some strange mail -- what's going on? Scam? Nut?

A strange piece of mail showed up at my house today. Someone wrote to himself, using my house as his return address. He got his own address wrong, and the mail was 'returned' to my house. I do not know this person. Any ideas as to what is going on? [more inside]

Return to sender, address unknown. No such number, no such zone.

I want to receive letters at my personal residence that are addressed to an art project of mine, and will not have my name on them. Will these letters be delivered, or do I need to take extra steps to ensure they won't get returned to the original senders? [more inside]

How do I stop my aunt from using my name on/in forms?

My troublemaker aunt is using my name to fill out forms. She has a long history of alcoholism and possibly some mental problems, and I have no way of contacting her other than Facebook (I think). How do I get her to stop? Is this illegal in any way? [more inside]

Zip, indeed.

Since we all have nine-digit zip codes now, why is it still neccesary to include the city and state in a postal address? [more inside]

How can I find mailing addresses along a route?

Is there a tool for generating a list of addresses along a route? That is, if I wanted to mail a letter to everyone who lives along the route from point A to point B, is there an online tool available to help me find the addresses?

fauxstal address problems

[Postal_Filter] I sent out 45 postcards to friends for X-Mas. They had a "From" address (labeled as such) and a "To" address (also labeled as such). Somehow, the Post Office sent it all to the "From" Address (not return to sender for insufficient postage or anything). Do I have any recourse in getting these sent to the right address? Is it bad protocol on my part to put a very visible "From" Address on a postcard?

Rejecting bogus "mail returned" email

Spam-a-lot: Are there spam filters that can reject phony "Mail returned" virus e-mails by comparing the "failed" address to what you've actually sent? Such hoaxes are dominating my daily spam quotient, despite my use of spam-blocker Razor. But it seems like these would be easy enough for a program to detect.
