Wulffert (1790–1855) was a journalist before accepting a position at the postal services. He was nominated for the post because he was politically reliable and he understood the nature of and the need for censorship. He also had the language skills required to be involved in the censorship of letters and newspapers. Wulffert's position was weaker than that of his predecessor. Wulffert paid particular attention to how mail was transported and recommended that four-wheeled carriages be used instead of two-wheeled carts, but this initiative did not take off. He also had artistic pursuits, and he took notice of the sound of the post horn. He thought that postmen should be offered music lessons.
Wulffert was born in Vyborg and studied in Tartu and Turku. He worked as a teacher from 1809, had a post in the Finnish State Secretary's office in 1823–25 and worked as a journalist from 1826 to 1833.
