This depends on the country. In Luxembourg, there is a
one-building-one-address rule. Stacked occupants, or occupants sharing
a building, always have the same house number (the post man uses the
addressee name to resolve the postbox he needs to put it in). I know
this is different in other countries, where every postbox needs to
have its own address and the post man essentially ignores the
addressee name.
