If your existing commercial mailbox meets USPS specifications, you can have it approved by your local postmaster. We carry new USPS-approved STD-4C mailboxes for new buildings or businesses that are renovating. USPS-approved mailboxes from U.S. Mail Supply are available in a variety of styles.
The USPS has to regulate the types and styles of mailboxes allowed for residential and commercial use to prevent delays and accidents when delivering mail. US Mail Supply offers a wide variety of USPS-approved mailboxes for homes and businesses. Residential and commercial mailboxes must meet specific USPS requirements, including box size, location, mail slot dimensions (when applicable), and identification information.

Before installing a wall-mounted mailbox in your residential areas, you must check with your local post office to determine the height and position for approval. Postal carriers must be able to easily reach your mailbox from the sidewalk, your front steps, or your porch.
If you choose a mailbox with a lock, only your incoming mail will be secure as USPS workers are not allowed to take your mailbox key. This can limit the size of parcels you will be able to receive based on your mail slot size.
Cluster mailboxes and neighborhood delivery and collection box units (NDCBUs) make for easy delivery to multiple residences at once. Since NDCBUs were transitioned out in favor of cluster boxes, there are more rules about their use by the USPS. New NDCBUs cannot be purchased or installed unless it is to replace an existing or damaged unit.
Cluster mailboxes from US Mail Supply are USPS approved and include a host of security features. Compartments are reinforced, weather resistant, and accommodate larger parcels than the previous NDCBUs. Please note, your local post office must be consulted before installation due to specific placement rules.
USPS mailbox regulations state cluster mailboxes installed in all new construction and major renovations of multifamily buildings must meet STD-4C specifications. New specifications dictate minimum compartment size, parcel locker ratio, standardized tenant design, ADA compliance, and more. US Mail Supply is here to help you find the right 4C mailboxes for your building.

If your mail is delivered at the curb, you most likely have a post mount mailbox. These mailboxes are fastened to the top of a post and installed securely in the ground. Because post mount mailboxes are so popular, you have plenty of choices in terms of styles, materials, sizes and colors. Locking post mount mailboxes are also available to keep mail secure.
Metal all-in-one units are sold with a mailbox, mounting board and matching post, along with any necessary installation hardware. Plastic all-in-one mailboxes offer the same convenience, but are typically designed to install over a 4 x 4 wooden post (sold separately).
Local weather conditions can be a vital factor in mailbox performance, as mailbox materials may perform differently in various climates. Consequently, you should select a mailbox that is a good fit for your application and area.
Gibraltar mailboxes constructed from steel deliver outstanding durability, resist damage and provide years of low-maintenance service. All of our steel mailboxes have a powder-coated finish to withstand rust and the elements.
Besides the numerous mailbox styles, materials, sizes and colors to choose from, there are several features to consider. They include locks, rear-access doors and built-in compartments that hold newspapers and magazines.
The U.S. Postal Service has specific requirements regarding the placement of residential mailboxes. Be sure to follow their published guidelines so that your mail carrier can deliver your letters and parcels safely.
From the Settings > Storage page you should see a breakdown of how much space each folder in your mailbox is taking. Below, you should see a list of the folders represented in the breakdown with the option to permanently delete all items (or those older than 3, 6, or 12 months) in these folders to free up space.
When deleting items from Inbox or other folders, items are sent to the Deleted Items folder by default. The Deleted Items folder does count against your mailbox storage quota until it is manually emptied or the emails are automatically deleted after 30 days, whichever happens first.
Every small business will require email and some sort of office productivity suite, and there are multiple options available. Zoho Mail starts with free 5GB of storage for up to five mailboxes, plus 1GB of cloud storage.
When your clients move, what happens to their mailbox key? Does the mailbox key convey to the next owner? Yes, according to Paragraph 2C of the One to Four Family Residential Contract (Resale) (TXR 1601, TREC 20-14). That paragraph lists mailbox keys as accessories that convey to the buyer.
According to the Postal Service, sellers should return old mailbox keys when they move. Sellers who intend to do so should make sure those keys are listed as an exclusion under Paragraph 2D of the One to Four Family Residential Contract (Resale) to ensure that the keys do not convey with the property. After receiving the keys, the Postal Service then changes the lock and issues three new keys to the new postal customer.
Not true. I have a USPS cluster mailbox that does not have an eagle on it. When my husband and I bought our house, I tried to return the keys to get new ones. The rep I spoke to said they were re-keying anyways so keep the keys to access until the locks were changed, then throw the old keys away.
I do property management and we always have tenants expecting the mailbox keys and some complain about the trip to the post office and the $50 fee (If it has not increased yet, as other USPS fees keep increasing). I always explain they need to get their own keys and return it to the post office after they move out. Those with no key are my favorites.
Every buyer or tenant agent should advise their client to change mailbox keys in addition to all external doors of the home. Mailboxes in subdivisions are likely owned by US Postal Service. I also advise my clients to change garage door openers which can easily be reprogrammed at a hardware store. Clients should be advised of potential security issues, however the client will decide whether to implement or not.

Hang your Discover Pass in your car and head out, walking for a short jaunt along a paved DNR road. Approach a gate and slip around it. About one hundred yards past the gate, an inviting opening indicates the location of the new trail. Set out for the summit here, along a trail that switchbacks along the northwest face of Mailbox Peak. Bridges and creek crossings await you in the lower section of the hike, and then the switchbacks start. At roughly 850 feet of elevation gain per mile, your thighs will feel the burn once you start climbing, and it won't let up until you're standing triumphantly next to the Mailbox. Distract yourself by taking a look at the construction of the trail. A multitude of WTA volunteer crews worked to create rock fords and turnpikes (elevated sections of trail) that keep your feet dry as you cross many creeks. The switchbacks continue for about 4 miles, before rejoining the old trail at elevation 3860 feet for your final push to the summit. This last push consists of 960 feet of elevation gain in half a mile--hopefully the approach warmed you up for the final assault! If your energy flags, remember what views await you at the summit. The peak's position at the end of a long ridgeline means you'll have an even better vantage point for panoramas than you might on other summits like Granite or Bandera. Rainier is in your face, and to the northwest, the Middle Fork Valley stretches before you like a lush green carpet. If nothing else, think about what might be in the mailbox itself besides the summit register. Folks have found beer, toys, even a fire hydrant at the top! What might you find? Let us know in the trip reports. 041b061a72
