    I needed to send in a form by Friday, and I posted it through the mailbox at 12:10 today (Tuesday). Will it reach there in time (UK)?

    Almost certainly. I'd expect it to be there on Thursday at the latest.

    Yes, as you posted it before 5pm (if that's the time of the last post everywhere) it should get there the next day. Thursday latest.

    Yes if you send it first class on a Tuesday before a certain time (4-5pm I think) it should arrive the next day. It will almost certainly arrive before Friday if it's UK To UK.

    Royal Mail DO NOT guarantee mail to be delivered the next day unless you pay for special delivery.

    ROYAL MAIL ARE DUSGUSTING TO SEND ANYTHING WITH. It's now been 3weeks my sons card,money and pictures of his sister have been ''lost'' in the post.. They offered him 6 stamps compensation! We've contacted watchdog and explained what's happened,how gutted my child is not to get the card off his sister of which he only gets to see every once a year if he's lucky!!!!!!!! He is truly devastated and I believe the money was the last thing he wanted he was just looking forward to seeing his sister and hearing from her. Never will I send my post via Royal Mail again.. I believe it was stolen as it was shipped from York to Milton Keynes. Not collected on the other side. I ADVISE ANYONE TO GO WITH ANOTHER COMPANY. To make him feel better I've had to arrange to take him to see his sister in Australia. Thanks f*+king Royal Mail,once bit twice shy !!!!

    I strongly advise anybody to go via another mailing company other than Royal Mail as I've encountered nothing but problems each an every time I've used them,hope this helps

    When was yesterday, some mail has waited years to be delivered. if yesterday was in the past and not the day before today then nobody knows what you are saying! I'm still waiting for a small parcel to be delivered to me, sent in 1961. That was when royal mail was ''royal'' mail and not post office services.Everybody had trust then!! You got what you paid for!!..My malasian postman writes on my letters ''dog in garden'' and i dont get my mail even though the dog is isolated from the delivery area. True that postmen have to be careful and use their discretion with animals (some of them eat dog in their own countries) but to deny me my letters for no reason except their paranoia is ridiculous!! Good luck with your post as it is getting worse and the service more expensive!!!!!
