If a subpoena was left at my door, is it legally binding because it was not hand delivered? Do I still need to appear in court?

A subpoena must be served in person. They cannot just leave it on your door step. However, if you were home and you opened the door or spoke on the other side of the door and identified yourself but refused to accept the subpoena the process server can just leave it on the door step. He does not have to actually hand it to you.
