To pass the goal to check mail, you need to go to one of your Sims Houses, and at the front of the lot there's a mail box by the trash can. About every day you should revive mail there but sometimes it doesn't come, so you'll have to wait.. Above the box the should be a pulsing envelope. Tap that and you've finished the goal.

At some point while your playing, one of the characters will recieve mail (usually the main) a small envelope will appear over the mailbox, then you click/ tap on it. Hope this helped

You need to go on Sims. Go to the Main Sim, or any Sim, It doesn't matter. If you go to the first leve of the house, like the first floor, and look outside, you should see a mailbox. It is black on a stick. Usually, there will be a little circle that is pulsing, with a small envelope. If you click that, it will give you the mail, and you will have checked the mail. If there is no envelope, come back in 24 hours. If you check on the morning of the 80th, then check again on the morning of the 81. That's it.

I'm not sure if you can still do this, but you should try going into your settings and changing the time, apparently this speeds up the waiting process

Or you can skip the step for 5 LPs

Guest said: 17th Sep 2017 | REPORT

Guest said: 20th Apr 2018 | REPORT

The same thing happened to me! Whenever I try to tap a mail box, it either does nothing or my Sims get the "No can do!" sign above their heads! I really don't want to use my LP!

You need to wait to get the money every 12
Guest answered: Added 1st Feb 2014, ID #616140

I think it's the envelope that shows up when you get your daily money.

It hasn't come up for days and I don't want to use my LP!!!
Guest answered: Added 1st Jul 2014, ID #630908

You might have to wait because I have this Mission. I have to wait a while because the envelope isn't over the mailbox. So wait until your daily money comes and then that mission will be completed.

Guest answered: Added 27th Jul 2014, ID #634287

Just wait until your daily reward arrives… then tap the envelope on the mail box… Task completed!!

How do u use your computer
Guest said: 7th Sep 2015 | REPORT
That doesn't work. That is to check the email. To use the computer you just click on it and it will pull up several options for what you can do. But you need to wait for your daily mail to arrive.
Guest answered: Added 3rd Jan 2015, ID #651811

If you never got your money in the mailbox look at all of your Sims Houses hope this helps 😄

At the front of your Sims house next to the trash can is the post box and every day an envelope will appear above it... Click it and you are done hope it helped

Guest answered: Added 4th Aug 2015, ID #667893

I think it doesnt works if you have used Cheats. My mail hasnt come for some months and I can't do the Quest

Guest answered: Added 1st Oct 2015, ID #671264

You have to wait until your daily prize comes through. Then tap any mail box. 😀

Guest answered: Added 11th Oct 2015, ID #671664

Guys sometimes if you make a new account it gives you something else then the check for mail Quest hope it help 😉

Guest answered: Added 29th Nov 2015, ID #674040

You have to buy the Post Office, then wait for mail to come in the mail boxes by the trash can at the front of your Sims house.

Why doesn't my envelope show up

There is no post office
spaceytracey said: 10th Apr 2017 | REPORT
Post office? Whereabouts is that? Near the hospital Downtown? Its not on my main map..
Also I have bought 3 dogs and the buy a dog task is still there also and that's been for months. So tbh I don't have much hope in the 'check mail' task working.
Guest answered: Added 23rd Dec 2015, ID #674914

Too bad, I can't do this Quest because I already collected daily reward before this quest appeared. Next reward is in 19:42h, but weekly quest remaining time is 16:12h, and skipping the task cost 10lp. Ok, fc#k you EA.

Guest answered: Added 16th Nov 2016, ID #685158

Wait for the mailbox to have the pulsing envelope tap that and claim the money and that should get you checked the mail

Guest answered: Added 13th Feb 2017, ID #687356

I have no idea how this stuff works but it may mean everyday you get a daily reward click on 'the envelope' symbol and if it works it should complete the Mission.

Guest answered: Added 8th Jul 2017, ID #691180

The pulsing envelope has your daily rewards in it, so you should get an envelope above your letter box everyday

Guest answered: Added 5th Jul 2018, ID #697812

Go to the mailbox and claim mail

Guest answered: Added 2nd Aug 2019, ID #705228

Check mail on a COMPUTER at a Sims house , not the mailbox
