snail mail

The original 'old fashioned' means of communicating before the internet took over. It involves making a hard copy of the communication, inserting it into a package (often referred to as an envelope) and paying someone to convey it to its destination. The organisation usually entrusted with this conveyance is known as a 'Post Office'.

The name derives from the lack of speed in delivery.
