Mailing things these days can be a process. For me I am very aware of what I put in the mail. For example I no longer mail checks for bills from my personal mailbox. If I am going to mail a bill, I drop it off at the post office. I was the victim of someone stealing my a check out of my mailbox in the past. I know that I am still a bit "old-fashioned", but not all of my bills have are paid online. There have been warnings about putting your checks in the mail.
