How the heck did the mailman get it in there?

They load them from the rear of the postal box and the opening must be larger than the front door.
P.S. Greg, No goofin' on me because I said load them from the rear.

Looks like an apartment type mail panel. The entire front swings open so all the compartments are exposed... Unfortunately, the actual compartments are larger in size than the individual door openings due to each door having a frame surrounding it. I consider it poor form to deliver a package in that manner. I usually pop open a door to make sure the package can be retrieved by the customer but in this case it looks like those locks can't be tripped from the backside and so an error in judgment appears to have occurred. Glad you got the contents out!

Not in this case but I have worked in mailrooms where you do sort mail from the rear... I recall one time having a tug of war match with a customer who was in a rush... I had started to sort an item into one of the compartments when I realized it was the wrong one... unfortunately the customer was standing on the other side and grabbed hold of the item and wouldn't let me pull it back to sort it to the right compartment. Fortunately the old woman was no match for a young fella like me so I won the contest! I did not, however, win the shouting match which ensued.....<sigh>. It ended well, but wasted everyones time.

Ahh, that makes sense. Thank you for clarifying that.
