What about the security of my mail. How do I ensure that no one tampers with it if the box is near my boundary?

It is a criminal offence to interfere with the mail. Section 69 of the Post Office Act 1900 states: 'Any person who stops a mail with intent to search the mail or to steal any postal packet in the mail, commits an offence against this Act: Punishment on conviction on indictment: imprisonment for four years.' Local vendors provide many styles of mailboxes including ones with locks. You should erect a mailbox that suits your needs as well as complies with the new legislation.
