    	        Legal status and activities in various countries.
    	        Is forgery in "MAIL From:" OK or is that in fact illegal?
    	Is it illegal to put someone else's name and address
    	on the envelope of a letter? My guess is that there
    	is no country in this world where that is illegal.
    If people start sending paper mail with forged adresses
    on it, and receivers have to PAY for it (without being
    able to refuse it), it will be illegal very quickly.
I still have to come across the first case where
one has to pay for paper mail without being able
to refuse it.
