A receiver of an unattended telecopier is constructed so that received mail grouped according to zip code could have the address printed on the reverse side of the message sheet. The receiver has duplexing capability. The sheet is then automatically folded and sealed with a weak adhesive. The letter then passes through a postage meter and is then sorted and delivered. The weak adhesive enables the letter to be readily opened without tearing.
