    "Registered mail/post" has to be signed for. The mailman/postman cannot put it straight through the mail slot/letterbox. He/She has to knock on the door or ring the doorbell and hand the piece of mail/post direct to someone in the house. That person has to sign a piece of paper to confirm that they have received it. "Normal" post can be delivered straight through the mail slot/letterbox.

    (Note that I have added the BrE variant of the mail terminology.)
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
