I am trying to download a txt file with all postal codes of Greece in order to connect with City, Neighborhood and street address. Thank you!

I fear that this information is not yet in OpenStreetMap. I just ran some Overpass Queries. The first one learned me that not all admin boundaries of level 9 are mapped yet. With the second one, I cannot find any postal code boundaries in Greece at all.

Without the boundary information of postal codes you cannot associated a street with a postal code. In some countries, postal codes (or ZIP codes) do not represent an area at all. I don't know which system is used in Greece.

I also wonder why you need a text file. You need a file that describes areas and properties of those areas, examples are shapefiles or GeoJSON. With a file that just lists postal codes without additional information you won't be able to associated it with street and cities
