Where are the mailboxes?

Hi all. I don't have a problem receiving mail. But I would like to send envelopes (stamped) but don't want to trek to the post office. Are there mailboxes on street corners that I haven't noticed (like the USPS)? The swiss post website has a search engine but only for the post offices themselves. TIA for your help.

Yes, they do exist, but they are YELLOW!

In the search engine on the main page of the Swisspost website, you need to select "letterbox" in the drop-down menu.

Once you spot one...you'll suddenly discover they are everywhere !

And yes, your post reminded me of having the same problem (back home, ours are Red!)....
