A few months back I bought a 200 acre farm. Since were on a rural mail route all the mailboxes are on the other side of the road. So i put up a mailbox on my neighbors property in front of my driveway. So the neighbor must of just noticed it and he's pitching a fit. I offered to put up a double poll down where his box is and he didn't go for it. He wants it gone and told me if I want mail to go get a PObox in town. Isnt there a public easement for these type circumstances. Im honestly more concerned with fire/ems/sheriff being able to find me more than the mail. I guess I need to call the postmaster for the small town my mail comes from. Ive scoured the internet but Im not finding anything. On the usps site it just says on a rural route they all need to be on the same side, but nothing about if its not your property.
