AbstractA mailbox includes a housing for receiving and storing mail, the housing having a first upper opening through which mail can be deposited and retrieved, and a second lower opening through which mail can be retrieved; a mailbox door mounted to the housing for movement between a first door position in covering relation to the first opening and a second door position out of the covering relation; and a lockable door movable between a first locked position in covering relation to the second opening and a second unlocked position out of the covering relation to permit access to the housing. A mail support is movably mounted within the housing for movement between a first mail support position for supporting mail adjacent the first opening and a second position for supplying mail to a lower portion of the housing adjacent the second opening. A lower support is movably mounted within the housing for movement between a first support position to prevent the mail support from moving to the second position, in response to movement of the mailbox door to the second door position, and a second position out of engagement with the mail support so as to release the mail support so that the mail support can move to the second position thereof, in response to movement of the mailbox door to the first door position. A support member is provided for releasably retaining the mail support in the first mail support position, regardless of the position of the mailbox door and the lower support.
