I have had the same problems I think it may be that you have to check daily so tomorrow you could see if it changes any?

Guest answered: Added 20th Dec 2011, ID #464878
I got mail on it twice...some random stuff like uve reached the next level for you're sim...but twice I clicked on the mailbox n the task is still not complete. (the mailbox is they grey metal thing,opposite the trashcan,across the garden path)
Maybe it's a bug and we should wait for an update?

I just recently started "Sims Freeplay" on my I phone 4. Everything task that has been given to me has been handled accordingly. However, the last task that was given to me was to check my mail. I check my mail, but the task kept saying check your mail box.. I don't know if it was because it didn't register it or because the other sims mail box needs to be checked? Can you please help?

Guest said: 9th Oct 2014, ID #456494 | REPORT
You have to wait usually until the evening when the mailbox icon lights up after your sims have been paid. When you click on it as you do every day to get the money then you have also completed the check mail task.
Guest said: 14th Oct 2014, ID #458520 | REPORT
No actually you check it on a computer
Guest said: 5th Nov 2014, ID #467527 | REPORT

The game has recently been updated, before when the little icon came above the mailbox and you clicked on it it wouldn't do anything. Now however when you click on it it says that you have done that task
I hope this helped

For mailbox problem uninstall game and before you reinstall it change date on phone or iPad to 1st January then reinstall it's the Xmas dates that are causing the glitch

Yeah that is so true! I think it is because of the christmas quest, however i dont want to use 5 lifepoints coz lifepoints are really hard to get.

You must update the game. It was a glitch that has now been fixed.

You can only check your mail once every day,on any mailbox it will have an icon in a speech bubble above the mail box.when that pops up you click the mail box and you'll get rewarded money.
 
 
 
 
Guest answered: Added 18th May 2012, ID #507951
Um, I'm pretty sure you're supposed to click and receive the daily reward? I'm going to do it, but I got the money a goal before the check your mail one. You do it by clicking the cloud thing over the mailbox.

You have to update sims first, then collect the reward. Cause E.A basically prevented us to complete this goal :| to force us to update.

Once you have bought the ball you need to get it from your inventory and actually use it, it takes 1 hour

Do you know how you get your daily reward in your mailbox everyday? Just wait for that to come up on the day that goal is being set or the next day.
 
 
 
 
Guest answered: Added 6th Nov 2012, ID #549366

Make sure you check all your houses mail boxes there should be a bubble above it which you need to tap

You will need to wait until a speech bubble pops up over the mail box with an envelope in it...once every 24 hours.

Me too. What can I do to complete "check the mail" ? I must waiting daily reward or do 'check email' on the computer ?
 
 
 
 
Guest answered: Added 14th Mar 2013, ID #576697
I used LP to skip the goal and the damned postbox lit up with new mail as soon as I hit the continue button after skipping the goal. Must be a bug.
 
 
 
 
Guest answered: Added 31st Mar 2013, ID #580178
Skip the goal or wait for your daily reward I guess. I'm on this too and I'm making all my sims (preteen and adult) do their hobbies for around 8 hours so that when that is done I will most likely be able to check my mail. - hope this helped
 
 
 
 
Guest answered: Added 1st Apr 2013, ID #580419
Every day you have daily mail you have to click on a icon above the mail box❗❗❗

To check mail there is a time when it's time a sort of mail sign will pop up on top of it meaning you have received mail.
 
 
 
 
Guest answered: Added 16th May 2013, ID #587890
You have to buy a computer and click on it. One of the options is to check mail

I checked my email, and sadly, it didn't work...😢 But I'm pretty sure you have to wait for your daily reward... Because that's the same as checking the mail, right? So I'm pretty sure it's that!!!☺

In front of every house, there's a mailbox next to the trash can. When your daily reward has arrived, there'll be a pulsing mail and exclamation mark sign above the mailbox. Just tap that to collect the reward

You have to collect your daily reward from your letterbox. Basically nearly every day you get an envelope with money on top of your mailbox you click several days and that is it

 
 
 
 
Guest answered: Added 16th Aug 2014, ID #636709
If you want to check your e-mail you need a laptop/computer and then it will say as an option to check your email , sorry if this does not help.
 
 
 
 
Guest answered: Added 17th Nov 2014, ID #646788
Try waiting for the daily earnings to come in. When they do, click on it to earn the money and finish the quest.
