Edit: my location is Virginia, USA
I got a folded up piece of paper with my address and name handwritten on the front in my mailbox. When i opened it, it was just an invoice for an appointment that included diagnoses (depression and ADHD). I don't know if the mail carrier accidentally opened it and lost the envelope somehow... maybe? Or if it's normal to just mail out pieces of paper with no envelope or even tape to keep it closed? It just seems so weird to me and I'm not really sure what to think
Due to where the USPS says I need to place my mailbox the darned thing gets hit and destroyed 3-4 times a year and replacing the pole and mailbox gets expensive! Lived here for 13 years now and I've spent probably over $1000 all together on this thing. I live in a residential area, last house on a dead end road. The mailbox needs to be placed across from the driveway of the house on the other side of the street, so when people come down here they turn around in that driveway and end up backing over my mailbox. Happened again yesterday and I've had enough of this crap. So what I'm thinking is a way to make the post out of something like the suspension springs from a car so that when the nimrods back into it, it simply bends over from the force and bounces back up once they move their car. If it jacks their car up, all the better (evil grin). Just not sure how to implement this, especially with the current shutdown going on. Added difficulty, I have no welder to join multiple springs to... keep reading on reddit ➡
I just got a smart watch and, as I was getting the mail, I had an idea. What if I could install some type of lever on the inside of my locked mailbox to open it via my smart watch? Anyone have any ideas on products used to accomplish this? Maybe some type of arduino kit?

I am having trouble understanding the purpose of a shared mailbox in office 365. We are using them throughout our organization but they never really work as we hope they would. My understanding is that a shared mailbox is a email account that multiple users can access through passwords or permissions in the admin portal. Any email that is sent to that specific shared email address is received in the shared mailbox and not the users traditional mailbox. This is all great if you are just using it as a means to receive email as a group but not really act on the email in my experience.
For example, if the user decides to reply to the aforementioned email, it will use SMTP through their individual mailbox instead of the shared mailbox that it was received. Therefore, if you wanted to track a conversation through the shared mailbox you would be unable to since the shared mailbox does not have access to SMTP through exchange online. Additionally, you could use a Dynamic Distribution List(DDL... keep reading on reddit ➡
Give us the ability to mail items to friends and ourselves. There could be a postage fee and a caps on delivery for trade items.
So much issues with trading and we really need a way to move things between our characters.
A mailbox would make trading safer and not have to rely on others. No more having to drop bags and pray the server doesnt crash.
brick mailbox I built recently https://imgur.com/gallery/dXW9nlv
thinking about creating a flyer to mail out around my area to do small jobs like mailboxes for example, any tips involving this, platforms to use, links content or how to go about this would be greatly appreciated. I'll include a link of the first mailbox I just built, let me know if you think that looks okay to possibly include in a flyer
Hey guys. So, this requires a little bit of backstory to completely understand the situation. A couple weeks ago, my mother passed away. I'm in the stage right now where I'm waiting for death certificates/her ashes to come back, and my (her) mailbox key just bent. I receive my mail from the same mailbox as her, but it's under her name, so I'm not sure what to do. This is the only key we have. I understand normally how I would get a replacement - I would contact the post office, give them my ID, and they would give me a replacement in a couple days / change the lock. But in this case, the box doesn't become mine until I have death certificates to inherit the house. Which I can't get, because the box they're being delivered to or have been delivered to is locked. If I have her ID, could I present that and explain what's happening? I'm also her MPoA and FPoA (Medical and Financial Power of Attorney), as well as sole recipient of her estate, and next of kin. I need the death certificates A... keep reading on reddit ➡
What if the mailboxes had it purpose? My idea is that we could leave gifts, and items requested by town folk in their mailboxes, so we could skip looking for them, or sometimes reach to them when they stay in their house all day (Yes I am talking to you Sebastian and Elliot).
Of course we would receive less friendship points by doing so, but I think that idea in itself would be helpful.
What do you think about it, any other small ideas or improvements?
My house came with a mailbox that is functional, but ugly. The box itself is duct taped to a post that is held up by rocks. Can anyone share any creative mailbox ideas they've seen or done, and how they've done them?
I personally tend to the weird, so I'd love to do something like a T-Rex holding the mailbox, or getting one of those tacky fish mailboxes and painting it bright purple. I don't live in an HOA or anything like that, I just have to follow the rules of the postmaster general.
So we've got this mailbox that has our address on it. Currently the issue is that when people come by at night, they can never see the address or know where to look, making the house hard to find. Here's the doorway to the front door, for reference. Does anyone have any suggestions for improving both the look and the legibility for the address? I'm kind of gravitating towards kind of a plaque or something on the cedar siding, but I'm not a great designer so I'm struggling to come up with ideas. Also up for other locations/suggestions... the mailbox doesn't necessarily have to stay where it's currently at and we're not necessarily tied to the current "form factor" of it.
5 years ago, the fad of smashing peoples mailboxes resurfaced here on Long Island, and at least once a week (random nights) in the late/early hours, someone would come blasting through our road and randomly smashed mailboxes.
After the first one, my father bought a new mailbox, made of steel and put it up the next day.
4 days later, we woke up to the dogs barking and peeling tires. My father took off in his car, but they were long gone by then. About to buy his 3rd mailbox, I suggested buying one with a much larger box, and told him my idea. He proclaimed his son a genius and bought it.
After we put it up, I grabbed a cinderblock from the garage and put it inside for a few nights. 5 days later, we ALL woke up to the loud crash, someone crying out, and peeling tires. We found the mailbox dented, sure, but also an aluminum bat lying next to it.

Hi I managed to grab some pallets from PaknSave in the hopes of making a mailbox.
is it a good idea to make one with pallet wood? Any ideas in form of photos, plans?
Hello all, I am always thinking of a new business venture to start up and recently I have thought about a mailbox rental business! I live in a larger US city and there are literally none of these businesses around... so not sure if that is a sign that it's not a good idea or if it's a sign that I have an open market to take over! I realize this is not a "get rich quick" business idea and that's not what I am looking for. I feel that the startup costs would be lower than normal and maintenance would also be low. I could offer UPS/USPS/Fedex pick up and drop off, PO box rentals, maybe even notary and western union services. what are your thoughts on this type of startup guys? thank you
Exchange 2016 on server 2012 R2
Outlook 2016 on client PC. I've ran mailboxrepairrequest in exchange powershell with and without the -detectonly switch after taking the mailbox out of quarantine and results come back with no corruptions detected and none fixed. I am unable to run those commands while the mailbox is in quarantine, it just sits at "queuedinassistant". Yet, whenever outlook tries to connect the database goes offline for about 5 minutes then comes back online and his mailbox is then in quarantine.
I've had a similar mailbox quarantine problem happen before with another user and just exported the mail from the user, disabled the mailbox, created and new one and imported the mail but for this user we can't even get into Outlook to export the mail.
I can connect to an existing profile setup for him on a terminal server using non-cached exchange mode and that worked, but as soon as I try to export his mail export the mailbox gets thrown into quarantine again.

I live on a relatively deserted rural road. My mailbox gets bashed every few months. For those of you who haven't had the pleasure of living in the country this means that local kids drive down the road at night while one of them hangs out the window and bashes mailboxes with a baseball bat as they drive by. I'm tired of replacing posts and mailboxes and looking for ideas to catch the people doing it.
The mailbox is at the end of a long gravel driveway and it's not visible from my house. There's no electricity available near the mailbox. The bashings happen infrequently (every few months at random intervals) so it's impractical to hide in the bushes at night waiting for them.
Seriously. I spend most of my time between PvP queues in that section, but I'm forced to move to another area to get my mail? The Supplies section gets a mailbox, hell, even the Crew Skills section gets a mailbox. Why not Combat Training?

Hey guys, I just watched a video by a YouTuber known as Matimi0. The video was from one of his video series called, "Sunday Mailbox", where we the viewers ask him video game related questions and he gives his opinions on them. In this, "Sunday Mailbox", viewers asked 2 really good questions. Well, the 2 questions were more of 2 concept ideas that in my opinion, should be added to the game.
PLEASE READ THIS BEFORE PROCEEDING!! : Just before you proceed to read the 2 ideas, know that the 2nd idea was asked and talked about in a VERY different way in Matimi0's Sunday Mailbox video. The 2nd idea i wrote down below is MY version with a big twist.
Do you think it would be a good idea to add difficulty ratings on all the operator in Siege??
It could help the new players find the operator the wanna start of with and then slowly branch off to other operators as they get better at the game.
What do you think of implementing a tipping system into Siege??

So Friday I went down to the mailbox to check our mail only to discover both sides of the mailbox were wide open and no mail was inside. My neighborhood uses these. I have no idea where my mail is going, I haven't been left any slips. I was expecting a package but the tracking number 9400109699937804619374 says the recepticle was blocked. What do I do? I can't receive any mail, I went to the post office and only got vague answers and I'm a little frustrated. Thanks!!
I live in an apartment block (in the UK) where all the mailboxes are together, near the front entrance. PHOTO!!.
There are no building staff and no CCTV.
At different times, I have found my mail missing (stuff that I saw in the morning, left in the box, then came back later to find it gone); my mail ripped up on the floor; mailbox lock tampered with (come loose like someone tried to prise it off); mailbox door bent backwards to access inside.
I have lost important mail and bank cards (which I cancelled immediately).
I have no idea who is doing this or why. Any ideas how I can secure the box, or catch the fucker that's stealing from it? Preferably not a booby trap that kills the postman, thank you :-)
