Postbox emoji - 📮 Meaning, History and Uses 

📮 Postbox emoji

Definition - 📮 meaning

The postbox emoji is similar in meaning – and sometimes appearance – to the mailbox emojis, though they have greater global recognition value. They are used to deposit letters and parcels for the postal workers to collect and deliver. As an emoji, they can signify that something has just been sent or to request that something is sent. Most versions show a red box with an opening for letters to be slid through. Apart from EmojiOne and Emojidex platforms, the emoji depicts a letter being deposited into the box. The Emojidex version is the most unique and shows an orangey-brown wall-mounted box which is identical to the one used in the mailbox emojis.
