Termination letter vs. landlord on vacation

Hi All,

I'd like to ask you for advice in the following situation I have.
Namely, me and my wife applied for a new apartment and we're waiting for final confirmation if we get it (any day now). If we get it this or next week we have time till next Friday to hand over the termination letter to our landlord to start the notice period in May. Unfortunately she is on vacation till May.

What would be the best way to do in this case? Of course it's just unfortunate timing issue, but we would like our 3-mth notice period to run starting 1st of May, so we can leave the apartment by 31st of July.

Should we send the termination letter by post (not registered post as no one would sign it and it will return to us) and additionally by email to the landlord? Would that satisfy the legal requirement for contract termination while she's away?

Thanks for any hint.
