Yep, an email from came four days after I mailed it from Texas. The subject line was "AncestryDNA update: Your DNA sample has arrived."

Body of message:

Good news! Your DNA sample has arrived.
AncestryDNA™ has received the sample with the activation code: (code)

You can expect to receive your results in the next 6-8 weeks, so look for an email from us notifying you when they're ready. In the meantime, we encourage you to update your family tree or start a tree if you don't already have one.

Thank you,
The AncestryDNA team

You might check your spam folder for some of those keywords. It says to contact if you have any questions - maybe give them a buzz in a few days if the email still hasn't come.

Meanwhile! Hey, we could do a whole new comparison on the DNA testing companies and their mailing procedures.

Ancestry and 23andMe get a point for not requiring customers to affix postage. 23andMe gets a point for providing a tracking number. I think the only way FTDNA will get a point is if someone really loves padded mailers more than the boxes. :)
