How do you send and receive your letters and package mail? Are local postal facilities adequate?

I received some through the local mail service, which was reliable if you have a post office box. Mail delivery to home addresses is unreliable. All packages will be opened and inspected at the post office so you pay taxes and do not import things that are against the law via the mail. - Aug 7, 2014
I send it through DPO/Pouch or FedEx but have used the local post office before. DPO/Pouch takes 1-2 months. They're once a week each. FedEx is much more reliable and fast, but very expensive. UPS also has an office in BSB but I haven't used it. The local mail is super slow and very, very unreliable. - Nov 6, 2013
