Mensagem:  "It doesn't matter whoever takes the letters to the post office, as long as it's today."

The above who is the object of the clause "It doesn't matter"

But what about the verb takes after who?

The way I see it "who takes the letters to the ... " is the "objective clause, and who is both the object pronoun of the verb matters and the subject of the objective clause.

Whoever is not an object pronoun.
