Minimap solution: Stop tracking them. Availability everywhere? Go engineering. Even though they are basically in every town, small town, and your neighbours porch anyway.
Make it an interface function.
Mailbox object in our bags.
Leave them as they are.
Why did Blizzard remove the mailbox at the Silvermoon City Bazaar bank?
Having it part of character interface wouldn't be a bad idea, but I don't agree with your reasoning for it. They hardly standout so having them everywhere is hardly an issue, and if they are "littering" your minimap...turn track mailboxes off.
Ugh, I'll just leave this thread be. Too many know-it-alls so focused on appearing clever by pointing out that you can toggle off mailboxes on the mini-map, or that it's only a short walk finding a mailbox, that they don't even bother to read what I'm saying.
"Mail boxes should stay, stop being so lazy and quit trying to make the game too convenient! Brb, gotta get back to my alt-tabbed game where my flying mount is currently num-locked in the direction of the Timeless Isle, where I'll be getting some free loot for all my alts before I send them all in to beat Garrosh within two days of trying SoO in the Raid Finder, without speaking a word to anybody."
If it's not an elf, leave it on the shelf.

Something mean about trolls.
Limitations makes every game better and more interesting.
First you can take mail from interface option, then you can use auction house everywhere you want, and then you have no need to go elsewhere, you'll just ride at the bank's roof stay there in one place and they logout.
To the main point of the thread though, this is seriously a very silly and minor thing to have an issue with.
One of the worst ideas and threads in awhile, well done OP

I personally prefer the aesthetics of multiple mailboxes everywhere. You go into a city? Little blue mailboxes everywhere. Towns? Also little blue mailboxes everywhere. So why shouldnt there be similar "mass mailboxes" for WoW?
There is a lot of things in wow that wouldnt work in the real world and makes little to no sense.
But as for the Mailbox issue. Most ppl like it for the aesthetics.
Now for the op and any others. If you wish to have things like Guildswars but still play wow then we should prbly get them to agree to make World of Guildcraftingwars.
I'd like this only because I'd get bag space back sooner
I can't really imagine a reason why they should be removed. If mailboxes bother someone that much they might be a little over-sensitive.
The cake is now an alternative fact.
