"Finns who long for the scent and feel of stationery need not despair as once it has been scanned, correspondence will be returned to its envelope and delivered in the normal fashion. But the postman will only call twice a week at the homes of volunteer residents. Deliveries to mailboxes at a local store will be made three times a week."
So the Finnish govt just wants to read and store peoples personal mail....why else would they put the letters back into the envelope and then deliver it to the original receipent???
Yep - I confirm this news just 30 km from the village where they will test this system. In recent poll made about this new system there was 96% against this idea... Me too.

Yet another government office invading personal privacy. It may start out as voluntary, but it most likely it won't stay that way if the postal service profits from it.
