"Click-N-Ship" Becomes "Click-N-Curse" As Outages Riddle Postal Service

"Unprecedented" problems with the United States Postal Service's popular Click-N-Ship service probably had many holiday shippers clicking and cursing throughout the week, but a USPS spokesman said the worst was over by Dec. 12.

"Obviously, this is one of the busiest times of the year for us and for our customers," one Postal official said. "Volume definitely played a part, but there was also a technical glitch in the system."
