Like Apartment Dweller, I have lived in a two family house myself. All the mail is delivered through a slot for the whomever comes by first to sort. The homeowner in this case is not "intercepting" anything, she got mail addressed to an unknown person and had the courtesy to ask the tenant about it. She could have been well within her rights to simply mark it "return to sender" and hand it back to the mailman, think about it.
The property owner is responsible for the upkeep and maintainence of the apartment, and is not your mommy nor a Mail Boxes Etc. franchise. To expect her to receive mail for your friends/family is ridiculous. Would you also give out her phone number to your girlfriend and expect her to take phone messages to you ?
Why doesn't your girlfriend just rent a post office box ? That way her privacy would be assured, there would be no problems if you or her moved, and the mail would just stay there securely if she was away for a few days. I think this would be a much better solution than aggresively trying to "escalate" this to the Postal Police -- and believe me, you will get nowhere if you try.
