An improved mailbox designed to rid bacteria and other biological germs present in contents. Designed as a mailbox for small-business or home, the mailbox has a housing assembly with an access door. Within the housing is an ultra violet and ozone generating system. At a rear section of the housing assembly is an extractor assembly, which includes an air intake, filtering system, and extraction fan. When the access door is opened, a micro-switch is triggered, activating a timer assembly. For a first predetermined amount of time, the ultra violet and ozone generating system operate to sterilize bacteria and other biological germs present in the contents, while an "unsafe" indicator is illuminated. Once that operation is complete, the extractor assembly operates for a second predetermined time. When the second predetermined time expires, a "safe" indicator illuminates, notifying a user that the contents have been sterilized for a predetermined amount of time.
