There is an item in the game that was originally called "Switch". This item had it's name changed to "Light Switch" in a version 1.2.0. It's possible the name change came about so that players would not confuse the aforementioned item with the "Nintendo Switch" which is another obtainable item in the game.

Rick Hunter, who played the Postal Dude in the previous two Postal games, dropped out from voicing him in the third installment. This was due to personal reasons at the time as Hunter was going through a "major" break-up with a girl. Despite the developers hoping to have him back, they cast Corey Cruise, who had provided voice work for other Postal content and was also good friends with Hunter.

Bad Ass Babes
In 2020, the game was removed from the digital distribution service Steam due to featuring "photos or videos of human actors." with a public notice stating that it was removed by the publisher which was untrue. Despite Valve allowing adult video games onto the service as of June of 2018, this apparently doesn't mean the inclusion of actual footage of real-actors in adult-oriented titles, though no mention of this is stated anywhere in the Steamworks Documentation.

Despite the game's cover artwork depicting Sherlock Holmes wearing his signature deerstalker cap and tweed Inverness cape, throughout the game he's actually never shown wearing it. In fact, when Holmes asks Watson to retrieve the cap for use in solving a puzzle, he describes it as "the one I never wear but everyone seems to think I wear day and night."

In the original Sherlock Holmes stories by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Holmes is never explicitly described in text as ever wearing a deerstalker. The first time Holmes had ever been depicted wearing one was in the illustrations for the short The Boscombe Valley Mystery drawn by Sidney Paget and published in The Strand Magazine in 1891, though written by Doyle.
