I read on here earlier, first move your sims somewhere else. Don't leave the sim on the lot. Then go to edit town and change the lot to community lot and then back to residential lot. That is supposed to fix it. I haven't had the problem. I just read on the forum that is the solution.

If you don't have enough money tomove her back you can always use the free realestate cheat.

I know this is an older post but I deleted my mailbox also. When I went to play the game again I noticed it missing.
What I did to get it back was--I opened the game with missing mailbox. I then did save as with a different name. When I opened the save as game my mailbox was back.
Hope this helps someone else.

click move lot, bottom left
then move the lot into another place which is the same size
then it will come with a new mailbox!!!

I believe that you can also use the buydebug on cheat and buy a new mailbox.

Using moveobjects on, (I use it while I'm building a house as this way I am not getting bombarded by 'you can't put this here' messages since I like to overlap some windows) I accidentally put the mailbox half-way on the sidewalk (I moved it temporarily) and I wasn't able to move it back or have my Sims interact with it, so I deleted it. If I end up getting it back, will it spawn in that same location?

Help is definitely appreciated.

You are correct, assuming you are patched to 1.42 the mailboxes are now available for purchase in buydebug. This was done so those of us with different styles of mailbox can use the style we prefer.

To buy mailbox:


In the cheat window you get from Ctrl + Shift + C
type testingcheatsenabled true
Open the cheat window again
type buydebug on

Now go into Buy Mode
Click the ? tab
On the Objects tabs, click the last tab
In the objects, find the mailbox you want and place it on the lot.

There's an easy way to get any mailbox you want on your lot.
1. Change any residential lot to a community lot. (I use the No Visitors Allowed type but it shouldn't matter)
2. Place any type/style of mailbox you want on the lot.
3. Change the lot back to a residential lot.
I've done this in multiple towns to change the mailbox type on my lot and it's worked every time.

That does work. I accidentally deleted my mailbox too. I tried the buy debug cheat and was able to purchase a new one.

Do what DawnLBrown says. The mailbox is somewhere in buydebug, for sure. I have seen it there countless times. Search around a bit and then just place it as normal

I've replaced my mailbox in buydebug before. It's there, but I don't remember exactly where it was. Miscellaneous decor, maybe.
