Thank you for the fast response!

On the installation, I'm fortunate to have no idea what it means to be told that it has a 3"x3" bolt pattern - this is my first time replacing a mailbox. While I would consider myself more capable than a novice on doing projects around the house, someone who is a professional would likely call me an "advanced beginner" as I rely very heavily on the pictures to help me decipher the written installation instructions.

My existing mailbox post is essentially a wood 4x4. What I couldn't figure out is whether I needed to purchase something additional so I can mount this mailbox onto my existing post or whether everything I need - with the exception of the tools with which to do it - will be in the box. If I do need to purchase something additional such as a mounting bracket, can it be as simple as a plank of wood or is there a particular mounting bracket that I need to buy to ensure it fits properly?

Also, from the response I got, it sounds like this mailbox comes with pre-drilled holes - which looks to be relatively standard - but no bolts to go into those holes. Is that correct?

If getting this mailbox to work with my existing post is more trouble than it is worth, is there a matching post for this mailbox?

Thanks again!

So, I went ahead and purchased the mailbox (I did NOT purchase a new post) and to be on the "safe side" I purchased a Universal Mounting Bracket. Well, here are the answers to my own questions. I hope my major frustration is helpful to others.

So, I went ahead and purchased the mailbox (I did NOT purchase a new post) and to be on the "safe side" I purchased a Universal Mounting Bracket. Well, here are the answers to my own questions. I hope my major frustration is helpful to others.
1 - THE MAILBOX DOES NOT COME WITH ANY OF THE HARDWARE NEEDED TO ATTACH IT TO A POST. Once I opened the box, the instructions state that "all hardware to install the mailbox is provided with the post." If you're like me and have an existing post that is well set, but need a new mailbox - a limb fell on the old one and dented it to the point that anything beyond a few letters wouldn't fit in there - be ready to go back to the store for the hardware - the instructions thankfully do have the specs but, based on your configuration, you'll need different pieces, so I can't be helpful to lay them out here.
2 - THE MAILBOX'S PREDRILLED HOLES DO NOT LINE UP WITH A UNIVERSAL MOUNTING BRACKET'S HOLES. I guess that's on me since the brand for the bracket that was at the Home Depot store is Gibraltar an this mailbox brand is Salisbury, but you'd think that the mailbox saying it is a "standard" configuration and the bracket saying "universal" that it would still work.
So, back to Home Depot I go. I'll be returning the no-so-universal mounting bracket and I guess I'll just get a plank of wood - hopefully, they'll have something in scrap or at least somewhat small so I don't need to buy something 6' long for the 18" piece I need - to use in place of a mounting bracket, and to get some bolts. I think the mailbox will work out, I just wish I had known all of this up-front so I could have actually been ready to do the work. Read Less

Is the whole mailbox metal? Any additional parts needed for mounting?

Is the whole mailbox metal including the door, flag, and decorative front or is some of it made of plastic or other composite?

I am replacing a mailbox that was knocked off of the post; the post does not need to be replaced. Do I need to purchase a mounting bracket? If so, is there a particular part number?

Answer: 
Hi Elizabeth, this mail box is all aluminum. The mail box has a bolt pattern of 3" X 3" to mount to a post. You will need some nuts and bolts for mounting. Check out the install instructions below.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Quality of product and timely delivery was excellent I purchased both the Salisbury mailbox (4855E-WHS) and Post (4845 WHT) in white. The order was received at my home in three days in good solid boxes. The assembly of the mailbox to the post took less than 45 minutes. The post is solid metal and will last for a long time. The post is long and needs to be deep in the ground. I dug the post hole 18 - 20" and secured it firmly in the ground with 4 ea of 50 lb bags concrete. This process took about 2 hours due to rocky soil. If I had it to do over again I would dig another 3 - 4" so that the mailbox would be at a lower height for the mailman. I am happy with the product and it looks great June 2, 2013
