Question: Why does Laurie drop off mail (that her father gave her) to the Myers house, which is abandoned? Why bring mail to an abandoned house?

Answer: Laurie's father, Mason Strode, is a realtor who owns Strode Real Estate, and there's a realty sign post in the front yard of the old Myers house. Mason tells Laurie, "They're coming by to look at it later," so we know he's talking about people interested in buying the old property. When Michael sniffs the envelope we see the Strode Real Estate logo, and it presumably contains realtor's paperwork which is pertinent to the sale of the house, and is meant for the people who will be coming by later.

Trivia: Early in the film, it is stated that James Reid died from an apparent allergic reaction to a bee sting. The lighting array on the ceiling of his office at the Daily Sentinel resembles a honeycomb pattern, such as those found in a beehive, or indeed hornet hive.
