That may be, but when my mailbox was taken off by a baseball bat, I put a 
4x6 into a couple of feet of concrete and lag bolted two mailboxes on top of 
it.  Yes, two, the small one inside of the larger one and a couple of inches 
of concrete between the two.  They tried the 'new' mailbox some time later 
and I heard the WHACK, then several expletives.  That was nearly 20 years 
ago and no one has even tried since.
