As you can guess from this thread, there is a new patch available.  It isn't too bad, only 63 MB

Release notes for 04/13/2015, PC Version 1.5.149.1020/ Mac Version 1.5.149.1220

 Howdy Simmers,

 While everybody else has been trying to "Get to Work", SimGuruGnome has been trying to "Get Some Time Off" for a while now. We took pity on him and let him out of his cave temporarily.

 Here's a small round of fixes to rein in a few pesky problems…

Issues Fixed
•Our overly-friendly visitors from Sixam were a bit too amorous. We've reduced the frequency of alien abductions and further reduced the frequency of male pregnancy thereafter. We know our men are good looking but that's no excuse!

•We've fixed a couple issues in the Medical career that could cause problems for actions around repairing broken medical equipment or transferring a patient case. A career in medicine can be grueling for anybody, but nobody wants to be given an impossible task.

•We've upgraded the firmware on our cameras to prevent larger photos from appearing too dark. We’ve also fixed an issue that was causing screenshots to come out blurry.

•So what did five say to three about… you know what? I don't have a joke for this. Save Error 531 is bad and we fixed a couple situations that would cause it to occur.

•Fixed an issue that sometimes caused a crash when doing sciencey stuff during the Scientist career.

•Is your Sim unsatisfied with their love life? Maybe it's all that alien affection they've been getting, or maybe it's the stress from their new
careers, but our Sims have been leaving their partners with an unsatisfied moodlet. We've conducted some remedial WooHoo education and Sims should now be better about taking care of their partner's needs.

•Fixed an issue where children and teens weren't getting school credit if they were coming home in a mood not explicitly approved by their school. Harsh!

•A recent update mistakenly removed some items from teens, but they’re back now. Teens can wear heels again! Fashionable teen Sims can
once again experience unnecessary foot pain in the name of looking good.

•We fixed a few unintended issues on our side that caused problems with certain types of CAS Custom Content.

 That's all for this quick update. Most of these fixes started as feedback from the community and we couldn't do it without your help and support.

Good fixes, but I had been hoping they would fix the mailbox issue.

Edit:  I'm glad that they lowered the rate of abductions, but I don't plan on reinstalling GTW until I am going to be directly using content from it unless they add an option to turn off the alien abductions.  They didn't add that and just not mention it, did they?

No, they didn't mention turning off alien abductions.  I actually think it is a good idea if someone doesn't wish to have such things in their game.  I won't be surprised if some enterprising modder doesn't come up with something first.

I've never had this happen after a patch before... but now I try to open my game and I immediately get the message that "Sims 4 has stopped working".  Has anyone else had this issue?

EDIT:  Ok, so I fixed it, but... having to repair the game after a patch that fixes issues just seems a bit... odd XD

This is a relief to see. I was thinking about making an article to help people cheat their way out of abductions, but they responded to complaints! Again! And they're on it and improving the game. Their track record is certainly improving as far as bug fixes. That gives me some editing to do in a couple of guides because of how I presented workarounds, but I'm pleased.

Now to hear something about Employee AI being better. If real life were anything like the game right now, I'd be rung up by the Walmart CEO every time I went to shop for toilet paper.
