in thread International Addresses

You are correct with the whole valid words. Hopefully it is documented per country on what the valid types of thoroughfares are. I can't do a check against the central government registers because the majority of the world's governments don't let their postal files out of the country. Some because they don't want to, others because they have no idea where everyone lives. What is the difference between Mailbox and Box (which is what I have that a PO Box is called in Sweden) is this right?

    In conclusion, you can say that some addresses is correct (includes one or several words in the right place etc), but you can never tell that one particular address is invalid.

    In the countryside, at least in some places, people can have a "Postlåda" - which is a mailbox - with a number on it as the address. The other kind - "Box" - is the one you hire at the post office itself. This is definable and parseable if one really wants to. But addresses here can be utterly freeform, even in the cities there are lots of combinations that does not include any form of "street", "square" or similar.

    I don't mean to put you down, or anything, but you should know exactly what you are up against. :)
