  • Answer: Stand-alone mail drop boxes are owned by the US Postal Service, part of the Federal Government. It is illegal to deface any property owned by post office. Post Offices can also dictate the placement, size, shape, and height of personal mailboxes whether on homes or on rural routes (stand alone boxes along the roadway). Customarily, it has been historically illegal to use even a personal mailbox for anything except sending and receiving mail.
  • Answer: Yes it is ILLEGAL to put something in or on a mailbox without postage. This is why UPS and Fedex drop items at your door.

  • Answer: As a former rural mail carrier I have seen this problem often. Most of these mail boxes have very shallow foundations. A truck backing into this type of mailbox can easily knock one over. A car could hit it and knock it over, although there would be a lot of damage to the car. These type of mailboxes can be very dangerous if a car is going at a highway speed and then looses control and hits one. They should never be used where traffic is not usually very slow.

  • Answer: You are probably referring to U.S. Postal Regulations which govern how far from a street edge and how high a roadside mailbox must be. The box must be placed at least 42 inches high and must be easily reachable from the window/door of the mail delivery vehicle.

  • Answer: US Code Title 18 § 1705. Destruction of letter boxes or mail
    Whoever willfully or maliciously injures, tears down or destroys any letter box or other receptacle intended or used for the receipt or delivery of mail on any mail route, or breaks open the same or willfully or maliciously injures, defaces or destroys any mail deposited therein, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three years, or both.

    Did you hit it "willfully or maliciously?" If not, you are merely civilly liable for damages.
  • Answer: Yes, that is generally how the postal service works. There are conditions to this, however. The envelope will need to be addressed with the appropriate, legible receiving address, including the zip code, in the middle of the envelope. It will need a return address in the top left corner, also consisting of a valid, legible address including the zip code. A stamp that is the value of the current amount required is needed in the top right corner. Please be sure to correctly seal the envelope on the back to prevent the contents from being lost, this can be done by using a damp sponge to wet the adhesive or by simply licking the adhesive. While hours of operation and regulations vary by state, it is generally the rule that mail pick-up runs Monday - Saturday, rain or shine. The hours will depend on the route in which your delivery person takes, but a good rule of thumb is to have it in the mailbox by 8 am; it could help to put it in the mailbox at night. Make sure the flag is turned up so as to alert the mailman of a need to pick up any materials in the mailbox.

    Good luck!

  • Answer: 18 U.S.C. 1725 states: "Whoever knowingly and willfully deposits any mailable matter such as statements of accounts, circulars, sale bills, or other like matter, on which no postage has been paid, in any letter box established, approved, or accepted by the Postal Service for the receipt or delivery of mail matter on any mail route with intent to avoid payment of lawful postage thereon, shall for each such offense be fined under this title"
