Does the post office require you to put the returning address on the package when sending?

    No I do not think they do. It is a more professional manner of writing and sending a letter or package though. The purpose of a return address anyway is just in case the package you send is by some chance sent to the wrong address or the address was written wrong for some reason the package will be returned to the original sender

    Depends on the package and where is it being shipped to. USPS will take packages without a return address but they may have it non deliverable.

    Also, you may send it but then the addressee might take it... I know I don't accept any packages without a return address.

    Yes, this is a new regulation since 9/11. They must have a return address, and if you use a P.O. Box for it don't be surprised if you get a hassle.

    Only if you want it returned if there is a problem. I have sent letters and packages with only my 1st initial and last name listed.

    If I'm not mistaken, a return-address is required; especially since 9/11.

    No. It's there in case the item cannot be delivered to the address or is refused, etc.

    I do believe they started to require that after the Unibomber problem.
