 Postal chiselers used to mail letters unstamped in the knowledge that they would be delievered anyway--postage due to the recipient. You had to be a real cheapskate to mail personal letters this way, but many people did it on bill payments. So the post office changed its policy. It stopped delivering letters without stamps. A letter with a stamp--even a one-cent stamp--is delivered (postage due if need be). A letter with no stamp is returned to the sender.
