Future of daily mail questioned

Questions have been raised about the future of daily mail deliveries to households and businesses.

Australia Post recently conducted a survey asking customers if they would prefer to have their mail deliveries three times a week or pay an annual $30 fee for daily delivery, News Corp Australia reported on Tuesday.

Australia Post denies it is planning to scale back daily door-to-door deliveries, the newspaper reported.

This comes as Australia Post lost a record $187 million on its traditional mail business last year.

A spokeswoman for Australia Post said it was important to give the community a say in the direction of Australia Post and its services.

"The survey is in no way an indication of what may or may not be implemented in the future," Australia Post communications manager Michelle Skehan said.
