Actually that was the case with me too when I wrote to them about 7 years ago with a highly complimentary letter of praise regarding my very first Dell purchase. Beautifully written, and it took me over an hour to type because I can only use one finger on a keyboard. Well, I never recieved a reply..... But that's kind of long forgotten now and it doesn't really bug me as much as it used to.
However for the life of me, I just can't see why there seems to be some kind of "shield of obscurity" or "invisible dome" placed over Round Rock, Texas. There's proof of that over and over and over again here on many posts and comments within the forum.
Believe me if I were head of a large company like that, customer satisfaction and customer interaction would be my number one priority; not just counting profits and hiring the least expensive labor you can find half-way around the world from where corporate management is located.
Does anyone have any clue why this mysterious shield of obscurity exists ?

Address......Mail Stop.....self explanatory. Today's bussiness world is cost driven. The promises for complaint resolution you get from Dell or any other Company today is like a Politician's word..Empty.
They aim more to lower cost and just give lip service to any real problem. Just the way it is today.
I'll be darned... I heard the word "mail stop" before, but never gave it any thought about what it means.
I guess I know now, lol....:smileyindifferent:
A mail stop is sort of like a street would be in a residential address. Round rock has about eight huge buildings and a whole bunch of people working in each one. Mail stops route the mail to the correct building and tells the mail room the area the person works in.

There is no shield of obscurity that I'm aware of, we probably get tons of mail but I don't work in any of the areas that do that so I have no idea how it's handled. When I worked in tech support our mail guy pushed around one of those four wheel flat carts stacked about two to five feet with mail and packages just for our little corner of the world.
Thanks Jimmy for the reply. I was curious because when I wrote them a nice letter of praise about 8 years ago, I never recieved any reply at all... nothing. Took me quite a while to type it too, lol.. I can only type with one finger.
Then there are other posts too where somebody wrote to Dell, and they never recieved any answer neither.
But with them getting so many pieces of mail, maybe it's a full time job to tend to it all...
So I kind of threw the "shield over Round Rock" as kind of a half-joke type thing... Figred it might get a few smiles....:smileyhappy:
