I had a situation of being asked to bring the lastest mail that I got. But then I wanted to ask how old it can be to be accepted. So I tried to think how I can ask my wonder. Here is the my thought.
It should be the mail that you got at least before 3 months from the day you ask for one.
At least before how many months should the mail that I got be?

You can just ask directly which mail the person wants.
Which mail do you want?
and ask until you know which one to bring.

Are you living in the United States? Are you required to prove that you live at a particular address? Perhaps you are registering your children for school. If so, some possible forms of the question could be:
How recent does the piece of mail have to be?
How old can the piece of mail be?
Some possible answers:
It must be something which you received within the last three months.
It must be from within the last month.
It must be no more than two months old.
