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

I don't really send or receive much mail but the local post office has been fine when I have. A bit slow, but fine. - May 2, 2017
Diplomatic Pouch. I never used local mail. - Oct 24, 2016
Local mail has worked for me to send/receive letters to neighboring countries. FedEx is also surprisingly fast from the United States. - May 18, 2015
We used the mail service through the Embassy. - Feb 13, 2015
The post office, but many advise against it. Getting a PO Box is best, or having things delivered to your place of employment. There's no regular home delivery service. Some have reported thefts from packages, and disappearing packages as well. - Jan 16, 2012
We receive mail through the Embassy via APO or pouch. APO is much quicker - Aug 9, 2011
Diplomatic pouch. - Aug 6, 2011
U.S. Embassy personnel will use the APO or diplomatic pouch. - Oct 9, 2010
There is reasonable express mail available from Phnom Penh and regional capitals. Mail service in is OK. DHL, UPS and FedEx is available although there may be a request for customs fees. Mail can be sent out with travlers to U.S., Thailand or Europe. - Feb 27, 2008
