Research was done, taken fro the United state postal service.
* Advertising on a mailbox or the supporting post of the mailbox is prohibited.
* Only the United States Postal Service may use mailboxes for delivery without paying postage (Flyers, magazines, notes, letters, etc. found in or on mailboxes may be charged postage due) .
o If you have received flyers on or in your mailbox, please contact your local Post Office facility.
o Non-postal information, advertising, and any other matter not bearing postage may be placed in door slots (These are not considered mail boxes).
Note: A receptacle for newspaper delivery by private companies may be attached to the post of a curbside mailbox used by the U.S. Postal ServiceŽ if the receptacle:
Does not touch the mailbox or use any part of the mailbox for support.
Does not interfere with the delivery of mail, obstruct the view of the mailbox flag, or present a hazard to mailperson or vehicle.
Does not extend beyond the front of the mailbox when the box door is closed.
Does not display advertising, except the publication title.
You should report your USPO for giving improper information.
I would also like to note the USPS is a Federal office meaning any violation IS a Federal Offense. Same as collecting camp fire wood on forest land, federal property, federal office= federal offense.
