This is a nice looking and heavy mailbox and it looks to be constructed of durable material. It has two flaws which I cannot get by:
1. It takes in water in a medium to heavy rain. Mine is mounted on my siding under an overhang, so while it is not completely out of the elements, it has to be an angled, heavy rain to get this box wet. There is no drain hole so what you get it water filling the bottom of the box.
2. If you order any accessories, name plaques,, etc. you get to drill the holes to mount them. At this price, really??
It is nice looking, no doubt about that, and it is very large as well. 14 1/2" wide, 15" high and 8" deep. It has a nice heavy lid and an inner piece if you want to be able to lock it. So overall, it looks nice and feels like it should be nice. But it's not, it's really a very nice looking mailbox that's great if you never get rain.
You can try to contact Whitehall - I did. Their customer service is pretty nonexistent. Do I have the box mounted right? Did I leave it open? And my favorite, "some people add a bead of caulk where its leaking. If I wanted a $19 contractor mailbox, I would have bought one for $19, not $190.

Not the best description on website ( the reason I did this) Hopefully helpful. Nice big mailbox, but not ridiculous looking. Asked mail carrier he likes how easy it is to put mags,letters and small packages in. Did not use locking slot(easily removed) wanted the bigger opening. Was able to rivet numbers right to front to save buying a number plate. Easy to install on clapboard siding. Has a rain diverter inside of lid to keep any water that might get to it. Only downside is price is a bit steep

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by RedheadedCyclone Nice Mailbox... doesn't actually attach to the house...
We really like the look and it was easy to install, but it doesn't actually attach to the house, it mounts on the wall with screws and then slides down over the screws. It's pretty doubtful that someone would come and pull it off the outside of our house, but it is possible to just haul it off the screws and take it away.
Also, if you get the plaque with it, the part where you personalize it is way down in the instructions.
