ActuaSully, criminal subpoenas can be issue and delivered by certified mail.  If signed for then they have the same operation of law as personally served subpoenas.  Subpoenas in civil cases ordinarily have to be served by the sheriff's department, police or by a personal service company so there is proof that the actual recipient received it.

If you have questions about subpoenas or receive one and want to know what it means and what you can do about it then you should call and experienced lawyer to give you specific advice.
