If you send email to the Royal Mail opt out address to stop "Door to Door" deliveries of unaddressed junk mail, they'll just email you back a form to fill out.

I've taken the liberty of putting it here for you all to use, without having to send the email. Just print it out, fill it in, sign and send off. Unfortunately you'll need a stamp - I can't do that bit for you!

If you want to opt out of other junk mail (the stuff that comes addressed to you), then you'll need to register with the Mailing Preference Service.

I confirm that I have read and fully understood your letter advising me of the implications of “Opting-Out” of receiving deliveries of Royal Mail unaddressed ‘Door to Door’ items to my address.

I understand that I may miss important information from local, national or government publications that are sent using this service.

From time to time, Royal Mail would like to contact you with information about our products and services that may be of interest to you. If you do not want to be contacted, please tick here.

Hopefully, things like this will stop the Royal Mail from threatening the jobs of postmen who are just trying to help their customers.

Problem with this version of the form - unlike the one purpletigron has put up - is that it doesn't explicitly list what else you'll miss out on as well as the advertising bumff, so the "read and fullyunderstood your letter advising me of the implications" isn't really true here.

We tend not to get too much in the way of junk mail, anyway - our postman isn't of the best, and quite often we don't even get stuff that's addressed to us (it may be a cunning scheme to reintroduce neighbourhood spirit by getting all of us on the stair talking to each other)

I also recommend the Telephone Preference Service as a way to stop heavily-accented telesales-droids phoning you at times which can really screw up your ability to achieve orgasm.

I'd like to second the TPS recommendation.

Albeit without the very specific reasoning.

I just found the calls annoying...

I have to assume that the only reason you haven't reproduced their letter here is to avoid subjecting your poor readership to the offensive levels of comma misuse they've perpetrated therein.
