Can you "rent" a P.O. Box?

    We (in the US) don't "subscribe to" a space in a post office; we only rent a P.O. box. We use subscribe to talk about receiving regular copies of a magazine or newspaper.

    Thank you, Parla! Yes, "subscribe" was a weird choice on my part. I wanted something that meant that you pay so it's assigned to you. But "subscribe" is definitely not it :)
