Default What time does your mailman usually deliver the mail?

My mailman delivers the mail at around 6:00 p.m. which seems really late to me. What time does your mail get delivered?

Mine comes between 5-6PM. I complained once to the post office because, according to their website, the mail shouldn't come any later than 5PM or something like that and, if it does, it is a rarity. I wrote in that my mail was consistently coming at 6PM, sometimes 7PM and I got some non-answer. It's really ridiculous.

For a while, about a year ago, it was coming between 8 and 9 pm. Now it is usually here by 4pm on weekdays.

I used to deliver mail as a part-time carrier. Someone has to be at the end of a carrier's route. That means some folks get their mail at 10 AM, and others (at the end of the route) get it at 6PM. If there's a lot more volume, then the day is more likely to stretch into the evening.

Our mail arrives through our door slot in the late afternoon--anywhere from 3 to 5. Usually our noble hound has assailed it with his fangs of death, but we've learned to find puppy-punctured catalogs endearing.

It varies every day so I cannot rely on it anymore. Plus the nearby post office closed so I am trying to get away from using the service altogether! They are even talking about closing the local mail processing center so any mail that goes local must first be shipped to Greensboro NC!. Forget about it for me!

Around noon. I'm guessing you'll get answers spread throughout the day.

it is so bizarre - I see a mailman on the other side of my street in the morning at 10 am. My mail doesn't show up in my box until 5ish. There must be 2 different mailmen that deliver to my street, because it really makes NO sense.
