The guidelines that we should abide by regarding our mails are as follows:

  • The Postmaster General needs to authorize your mailbox.
  • Your mailbox needs to be in working order.
  • Your mail must be shielded from the elements by your mailbox.
  • It must be safe to use your mailbox.
  • To enable your delivery person to access each one, your mailbox needs to be in an accessible location.
  • Your mailbox should have a tidy appearance and be big enough—within permitted dimensions—to accommodate the amount of mail and packages the client receives each day.
