Rural mailboxes comparatively require severe protection as they are installed outdoors and are prone to burglary and wreckage. Since rural mailboxes are mounted on the roadsides and not on the house walls or posts, they often require more care than residential mailboxes. A rural mailbox has to be located on a rural mail route approved by the concerned postmaster and only on the right side of the road. It should not hinder other nearby boxes. Therefore to reinforce extra strength and extreme sturdiness, it is either made of electro-galvanized steel or a non-corrosive aluminum body.
