@canelacaliente I have noticed this in my own game before the latest update, but can't confirm or deny any more than that for a) it's an inconsistent bug for me and b) I'm currently in a save with mods.

I've also been seeing this. The mailman clearly delivers the mail just fine, but I still get this notification saying that they couldn't.

I've seen this off and on since I started playing Sims 4 and that was back in January 2015!

 

Sometimes it happens when I forget to clear out the mailbox when something's been delivered and other times it's because the mailbox was placed with MOO. Sometimes it seems to happen for no reason at all. I don't worry about it.

 

I guess because I'm so used to it by now and my Sims always get their mail in the end!
