Mail How does ECFMG send documents? Mail or Courier?

I want to ask about when ECFMG send docs like certificates, reports...etc to the they send them by airmail to go to the post office or by express email (like DHL, FedEx...etc) ??

Because I think the Address we have to enter in ECFMG contact info depends on the answer

Info It can be regular mail and it can be FedEx

For minor communications, such as informing you that your application has been received or returning your ERAS documents and stuff like that, they send you regular postal mail in addition to the email notification. However, this regular postal mail has not been consistently sent to all international addresses, specially when it is a PO Box.

For more important communications such as sending you the ECFMG certificate or sending packets to your school, they use FedEx.

At all times, they usually send an email notification when they send you a regular mail or FedEx.

If you have a US address, it's recommended that you use it because that will make communication considerably faster.
