When USPS tracking says delivered, in/at mailbox it means that the package was delivered into your mailbox or on your porch or near your house.

But most times when you see delivered, in/at mailbox the package should be in your mailbox if you have a curbside mailbox.

So if your USPS tracking says delivered, in/at mailbox go out to your mailbox and check your mailbox for the package and if it's not there then look around your porch or somewhere that the USPS mail carrier may have hidden the package to keep it out of sight.

If you still cannot find it then contact your local post office with the USPS tracking number as sometimes a package may get delivered to the wrong address.

If you get your mail from the post office then it would say delivered to P.O. Box and a key will usually be in your mailbox.

Or if you get mail in a cluster mailbox then the mail carrier will put a key in your mailbox and put the package in a parcel locker on the cluster mailbox.

The delivered, in/at mailbox on USPS tracking means that your package was delivered to your mailbox.

If you have a curbside mailbox it means that the package was delivered to and placed inside your curbside mailbox.

So you should find your package inside your curbside mailbox if it says delivered, in/at mailbox.

If your mailbox is on your porch then it would be in your mailbox on your porch or a note in your mailbox should state where your package is.

But most times a delivered, in/at mailbox status on USPS tracking means the package was delivered to your mailbox.

So check your curbside mailbox as it should be in there.
