I’m trying to set up a physical address to have mail delivered (used to be a summer home, has never had a mailbox). I call the post office and am told that I need to call the fire department to get a 911 address first (which should take about a week and will be MAILED to me :smack:) and then I’m told that I can put my mailbox on a post at the end of the road about a mile away from the house.
I’m not a postal expert, but what about Rural Free Delivery? I thought that was the idea that the post office delivered mail to your house no matter where you lived. If they only bring it a mile away, then what about the service is rural or free?
IOW, is this postmaster correct?
