    express mail

    Teachers,

    At the post office, if you want to tell the clerk there that you want send your mail my express mail, can you say:"I'd like to send this express."?

    Or would it be better to say, "I'd like to send this by express.?
    And if "I'd like to send this express." is okay, the 'express' should be capitalized 'Express'?

    Thank you.

    Different countries have different way of sending postal mail..
    We have something called as "speed post" to send something in shorter time than normal mail...
    So we say.. "I want to send this mail via speed post."

    Capitalizing SPEED POST is alright
