well yeah that is what i have done, i have imported all Addresses from an 
official source
but was just wondering if i also should tag the address on the box, or make 
som kinde of relation from the box to the address node

i have begun to add the postal boxes and i don't tag the address on them, 
just the positon and the operator
the postal service dosn't have the collecting times, event though it is 
printed on them
and i can't go around to all 115 of them and check, they are spread out over 
15 islands

and i have also just added all postal offices i my country, there are only 
28 of them so it was easy
