Ancient Persian used pigeons to pass on some information. They were their messengers before and sometimes the only ones that can prevent war from happening. Their consistency in delivering messages is extraordinary.
As fast as a pigeon can be, ironically, the generation used the term snail in message sending. It is indeed one of the slowest forms of delivering messages. That is the reason why they use the term snail for snail mails.
