STEP 4.

As you know when you want to mail things out, your box has to have a flag to let the mailman know that there is mail to be sent. If there is no mail for you on any given day but you have mail going out, the mailman needs to know that he has to stop at your box no matter what because he has a pick-up. When the flag is up he stops even if you have no mail.
