Here is my best explanation:

'general view perhaps' is the definition.

I can't judge whether this defines the answer.

'comment from the mail offering' is the subsidiary indication.

'comment' becomes 'observation' (observation is a kind of comment).

'from' means one lot of letters go next to another.

'the mail offering' becomes 'post' (I am not sure about this - if you are sure you should give a lot more credence to this answer).

'observation'+'post'='observationpost'

'a' is the link.

This clue was last seen in The Irish Times

(Other definitions for observation post that I've seen before include "Lookout point", "lookout" and "army's advanced viewpoint".)
