Suntex was the name of a post office in an unincorporated community in Harney County, in the U.S. state of Oregon. It was established in the valley of Silver Creek west of Burns and north of U.S. Route 20.

The Suntex post office was set up in 1916 and closed in 1949, after which Suntex mail was handled through the post office in Riley. W. F. Sturges, the first postmaster at Suntex, said that postal authorities had assigned the name "Suntex", which had no local significance, for reasons he was unaware of.
