I have been renting the same place for six years (will be 7

I have been renting the same place for six years (will be 7 in august) and have a long track record of on-time payments. I have my bank, Chase, send the landlord a check on the 24th of each month with an expected arrival date of the 31st. For April rent, for some reason (probably the post office), the rent did not arrive on time (I believe it arrived on or about April 6th). When I received a letter from the landlord stating that we were in default, I immediately emailed her with an attachment of the proof of payment from my bank, letting her know that the check was sent on the 24th with an expected arrival date of the 31st, and if it was late this is due to factors our of my control. Despite this, my landlord is still trying to charge me a late fee on the rent (roughly 5% of monthly rent). I think that is outrageous given that I have a long track record of on-time payments and I sent her a proof of payment that shows I mailed her a check on March 24th. I have not paid the late fee and do not think that I should have to. In good faith, I followed up with her and told her that I would be happy to arrange a wire or direct deposit to avoid dealing with the post office altogether (she did not respond yet). What are my options here? Can my landlord hold me in default for not paying the late fee? How do I get the late fee wiped off, assuming that she insists on charging me for it despite proof of payment?
