Beyond a Letter and a Stamp

Mail is an important method of communication between a company and the outside business world. The daily processing of mail is usually handled by the administrative assistant. This may include sorting the mail and distributing it to the proper departments or individuals. It may also include opening the employer's mail, prioritizing it, and gathering the necessary preliminary information needed to answer specific requests or problems.
