6.8. What kind of scanner would you recommend for this?

Depending on the distance from your computer to the actual mail boxes that you would be scanning, we have a couple of suggestions.

We use a scanner from Metrologic called the Voyager BT. It is pretty popular as far as an inexpensive cordless scanner. Has a range of about 33'. You can probably pick one up on Ebay cheap. We also deal with Datalogic.  They have a wireless scanner called Quickscan. Little tougher to setup and pair with the base, but has a little farther range if needed. That is the main concern is how far away your computer base is from your mail boxes.

Also available is a Symbol LS4278 Wireless Bluetooth Barcode Scanner, it has a range of around 55'.

If distance is not an issue, then I would recommend the Voyager BT.  Make sure you purchase one that connects via USB.

Run a search on Ebay for the Metrologic Voyager BT - if you are looking for a good used one.
