This one I call: The “Mailbox”.


Which also comes with a way to tell if you’ve got mail.


Typing ‘Mailbox’ instead of ‘Postbox’ reminds me of a scene from my time working in the US.

ME: (TO DEPARTMENT SECRETARY & OTHERS NEAR HER DESK) Where can I post a letter around here?

SECRETARY & OTHERS: (BLANK LOOKS)

ME: I’ve got some post to send.

SEC & OTHERS: (STILL BLANK, UNCERTAIN)

ME: (SHOWING LETTER) Where do I take this?

SEC & OTHERS: (BRIGHTENING) Oh. The Post Office.
