It appears Spehro has already answered you in a related sub-thread.
I will repeat here in the interests of thoroughness and in continuing
opposition to ignorance:
Title 18, Part I, Chapter 83, Section 1725
Sec. 1725. - Postage unpaid on deposited mail matter
Whoever knowingly and willfully deposits any mailable matter such as
statements of accounts, circulars, sale bills, or other like matter,
on which no postage has been paid, in any letter box established,
approved, or accepted by the Postal Service for the receipt or
delivery of mail matter on any mail route with intent to avoid payment
of lawful postage thereon, shall for each such offense be fined under
By the way, I first learned this when I delivered newspapers many years ago.
One of the rules was "Never put the paper in a mailbox."
