Early on during your playthrough of the game when you're still in Bel-Air, you will come across a mail truck with a container outside that requires Dead Island 2 Mailman's keys to open.

At this point in the game, when you first encounter this Special Delivery container, you won't be able to start the associated quest to find the Mailman's keys and open it. For now, just keep progressing through the game until you have unlocked Venice Beach and fast travel.

With fast travel now unlocked, you can head back to Bel-Air during the day, and if you travel back to the Special Container, you will find a journal entry nearby called Signature Required. Picking this up with begin the My Mailman Was A Zombie quest. 

The quest tasks you with finding the location of the mailman by using the journal you picked up, as it contains his delivery route and highlights three houses in Bel-Air where he went to deliver mail.
