Lets not forget all the people who make address errors, small printing, scanable packages, people moving mailboxes, new houses, councils changing street numbers as sub development happens. All this while on a strict timeline. Then posties also have sick days where another postie does the round and they may not be familiar with all the houses.

    I think people should have a large mailbox next to the footpath and curb with their address clearly visible. When a postie has to add in doing u-turns ect to get to your mailbox it is just adding more work and there are more chances of error occuring.
    I am just trying to give the OP some direction on getting this handled to save future issues. Not wishing to get into a debate. Sure, their job is stressful - and its not always their fault. But if the matter doesn't get reported to Aus Post then nothing will ever be fixed. I know first hand of the errors that can happen.

    Aus post decide where the mail boxes are positioned as well.

    I understand why you are upset. I would be too.

    But it is worth taking a deep breath and sleeping on it before taking any action that might only make you feel worse, not better.

    I've also accidentally opened letters that were incorrectly delivered to my letterbox and the business po box. When it happened at the po box, I scrawled a message "sorry, opened this by mistake as it was in my po box" and gave it to the front desk to put in the right box. I can honestly say each time I didn't even read much further than the letterhead/first lines and couldn't tell you any real details about the contents once I saw that it wasn't for me. If it happens again with someone else getting your mail, there is a good chance they have opened it but haven't read the contents. Maybe not the case with your nosy/nasty neighbour, but you never know.

    Take care.

    I open every piece of mail that comes into our house unless it is addressed to MR3 as he loves getting mail.
    If I left DF to open his own mail it would never get done.

    I agree with PP- sleep on it! You don't actually know if she read it and she has done the right thing by putting it in your letterbox.
    Getting a PO box doesn't help these issues- I get mail regularly addressed to my box in error.

    Always open my husband's mail. Don't see why not. He sometimes opens mine. But doesn't cause he can't be bothered sometimes

    I open all our mail. I do all the financial stuff so it makes sense that I know what bills have arrived.

    If she really was a cow she would have thrown it away and not given it another thought. The fact that she took the time to put it back in your box suggests she's not all bad and not worth getting worked up about.

    I open all the mail too, unless it is around birthday time and they are birthday cards (easy to tell birthday cards from bills). We pretty much only get bills delivered.

    Well I don't get along with my next door neighbour too ( the other side are great) and if they opened a letter and read through it I'd be ****ed too angry I'd be telling them right off..

    But... It may have been an accident. I've gotten mail that isn't mine and accidentally, without thinking opened it. In fact next door to me ( the nice ones) have a teenage girl with the same name as me so our mail gets mixed up quite a bit.
