Sender should pay extra postage charge
The day after my underpaid postage letter hit the Mailbox page ("Postal penalties are just not on", Mailbox, January 9) I receive another card – this time demanding £1.50.
As far as I know, you can look at the front of the letter and either you can pay or refuse it.
What if you cannot work out who it is from from the outside and there's no clear postmark from the sorting office it started from?
If we paid the fine and opened it and it turned out not to be what you were waiting for, why can't we get a refund?

Purchasers of clothes and other goods are allowed refunds if items are deemed as not suitable, damaged or have parts missing.
The new rules should have been that all letters and parcels should have the sender's address on the reverse and payment of excess postage should be made by them.
After all, the sender knows how important the mail is to them and whether to pay for it or not, rather than those at the destination address.
