I print most of my postage stamps online using the Royal Mail system.
Normally it works pretty good.
Today I needed to post a letter to Post Office Savings at a P.O. Box.
Can't do it. Rang the helpdesk. "you can't print online postage to a PO Box."
Also, you can't print postage to BFPO addresses nor can you print postage to Europe as Airmail Printed Matter.
I send a magazine to a friend who lives in France.
Although Royal Mail lists the price as £3.26 for Airmail and Printed Matter it is not available.
If I don't mention "printed matter", it is £3.61 and I can print the postage and send it.
What is the problem here? after all it is only a stamp.
If I go to a Post Office (which we don't have round here anymore, someone decided to close them all) the nearest is now about 6 miles away and buy the stamps I can send letters/packets anywhere I like.
