  1. How can I get an msp barcode placed on my mailbox. I would like to know if a letter carrier comes to my house everyday.Since we have been put on an auxiliary route the delivery times are never consistent sometimes between 7-8 pm and there are a lot of days latey we don’t receive any mail this week there were three days there was nothing at all , that hasn’t happened in 21 years we’ve been here. For years we had a regular mailman and there were no problems. I’d like to know why that had to change, the carriers are different almost everyday and the service Is terrible, why should we receive a different level of service that the rest of the country.
