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

We do almost all mailing through the pouch. DHL is available locally but is expensive and, depending on where you're mailing to, can take a while. - Oct 1, 2017
Packages and letters come through the pouch. No APO. - May 13, 2014
We use the pouch and it take 3-4 weeks. You can use a FedEx or DHL local office to get stuff back to the U.S., but it is pricey. - Aug 26, 2013
Rent a PO Box or have mail delivered to your home address. A letter could take 7 days from USA or 4 weeks. - Oct 28, 2007
