IN your mailbox? Like a regular single-mail-box-on-a-post type mailbox? SFH or apartment complex/2-family/?? ? I can honestly say my name has never been INSIDE my mailbox. My mail goes there, and it has my name on it, but. . . Hell, I've mailed crap to people who DON'T live at a house and it got delivered. Perhaps I'm confused. EDIT: Here are the reg's for single mailboxes (mailboii??): http://faq.usps.com/eCustomer/iq/us..._usps0916]&varset(source)=sourceType:embedded NAME is not required, just reco'd.
