Mail Delivery By Rockets

quote [ The history of the postal system is inextricably tied to the history of transport. Advances in transportation technology have not only allowed people to travel farther and explore more territory, it also allowed the postal system to expand their influence over a larger area. As new inventions and discoveries shortened the time of travel, messages and letters began to reach distant recipients in lesser time, and the postal system became more efficient. By the time the first trans-pacific airmail was delivered, the postal service had tried every mode of transport available to man, including rockets. ]

How do you expect to mail it?

When I was a child in the early 80s, I and heard that some giant company had saved money by implementing an "Electronic Mail" system. I assumed that this meant they had robots delivering their letters.

Sounds like something they would do in the pre-war Fallout universe.
