    A mail box does not fit in any of the categories listed. A landlord is not legally required to provide a mail box in most areas. The home owner typically owns the box on the house. The bank of mail boxes at the end of a street or in an apartment complex are typically owned by the post office. Even those are sometimes owned by the apartment complex. A box you buy & put on your house is typically owned by the home owner.

    actually, mail boxes belong to the post office..even if the owner buys and installs it.....contact the post master.
