Thanks!

But how can I add my name to the postbox when I don't have a residency permit? This is part of the problem - I need to prove I live here before I can get my name on the mailbox!

Catch-22?
Er...do like we did? Write your name in clear block letters on a small piece of paper. Tape it to the mailbox. Job done. The postman could care less whether you have a permit. He's looking for your name on the box. Plus, it often takes a few weeks for the engraved name plate to arrive.
