I mailed three letters, normal 1st class postage ($1.05) from Indianapolis to the United Kingdom (UK), specifically to Scotland (Fochabers, Moray) in the last fourteen days. The first arrived on the seventh day. The next two each arrived in five days. Just sent another yesterday.

Why did it get sent back? Are you putting enough postage on there? I send stuff to the UK all the time and never have problems getting mail to arrive on time.
