I have been trying to access usps.com and keep getting warnings in all browsers stating "no data received" and my virus software keeps alerting me that it is a malicious site. Does anyone know what is going on and having the same problem?

I don't think it's AVG, looks more like a web developer on the USPS.com side set the entire site to secure, try using https://www.usps.com/

Musta fixed it by now. That is, it redirects to https:/ /www.usps.com (er, example.com wouldn't be much point here would it?)

By sheer coincidence I was all over the USPS site only two days ago. Browser history confirms that they haven't only just changed their name and/or protocol. Do you have a browser add-on that blocks redirects? A wonky ISP that insists on knocking at a different port number?

I was able to access using https, but like you lucy, I was all over it on Thursday without a problem typing their url without https and being redirected without any problem. Weird.
