  • Depends on the area.... They do at my work (home office), but not at my house. Then again, maybe I just have a lazy/rude mailman, heh.

  • Can the mail person see it from the road? If its seen it will be picked up.

  • If your mailbox has a flag, put the mail inside and put the flag up. If not, use a clothes pin or something that will hold it to the mailbox but keep it visible.

  • I take it the mailbox is on your house? Just put it in on end & close the lid on it so that it sticks out a bit

  • He should. Our mailman will, sometimes. Our mailbox is attached to the house and has an outside pocket to stick mail to be picked up. If we have mail he will take it, if not he leaves it and yes, you can see it from the sidewalk, he's just lazy.
