Make it an interface function.
Mailbox object in our bags.
Leave them as they are.
Mailboxes are now an issue..? If ya don't wanna go somewhere then be an engineer with that portal mailbox thingy. Even if not constantly useable it's at least good for when you're just too far away from a regular one.
We already can join bgs, dungeons and raids without moving our character 1 step. Do we really need to make it so we can use in-game mail without moving our toons too?
Sure, I'm all for it.
"The world is filled with lies! Thou shalt not kill. Thou shalt not steal. Thou shalt not bear false witness. Thou shalt not commit adultary. These are all lies, deceptions. I don't want to be killed. I don't want to be victim of theft. That is why they use lies like justice and moral to protect their weak selves. The original truth is the survival of the fittest. One must devour it all, wether it be other humans, wealth, power or the world itself! All hail Britannia!" - Charles vi Britannia
2. Yeah, I hate walking to work and passing 4 post boxes, I prefer there to be only 5 or 6 in my entire town, they clutter the place up
3. The postboxes are so prevalent, first you complain that there's too many, then you complain you have to go to one to mail things to other characters?
Your method of having it in the interface speeds it up by what, 3 seconds?
I feel like things like LFD and flying mounts are convenient in a bad way. They make you stop doing things which didn't use to bother you.
Mailboxes, on the other hand, aren't really something which adds anything to the game. I like their functionality, but I don't see any benefit in chasing after them just to open a letter.
"Good morning!" said Bilbo, and he meant it. The sun was shining, and the grass was very green. But Gandalf looked at him from under long bushy eyebrows that stuck out farther than the brim of his shady hat.

I don't even have to walk to dungeons and raids anymore. Now we don't want to walk to mailboxes?
What next, we won't want to walk to quest objectives anymore? This is such a small thing that's barely an inconvenience, especially considering 90% of people sit in the main city waiting for queues anyway.
Yeah just because those elements don't make sense, doesn't mean we need to keep adding elements that don't make sense. The point of MMO companies should be creating worlds not interfaces. You might think "mailboxes" add nothing to the game, but MMOs have tons of psychological aspects in MMO that you don't see in your face. Why don't we let players pick up items they bought in the AH right from the interface? Adding all these things make a game fell less "world" and more a interface full of instances.Nothing makes sense anymore. We instantly teleport in an out of dungeons, we don't have to talk to people to form groups, we receive quest updates on the fly right in the interface, etc.
It is not like there isn't a mailbox within 2 minutes of where you are anyway. This is a non-issue.
With that said, having to find groups while leveling up has always sucked. Being able to queue while you quest is a good thing in my mind, since the group make up for leveling dungeons is really just a formality anyway.
Not having LFD at max level would be a good thing. And for those who would complain about the time spent finding a group, how are those queues working for you, DPS?
If they aren't broke, don't fix them. There are plenty of mailboxes in the game, and if someone is being a jerk and sitting on one with a large mount, there is usually another one fairly close by you could go to instead.
when all else fails, read the STICKIES.
