Return Mail

Posted by Minuit on January 22, 2001

I'm trying to find a precise definition of the phrase "Return Mail" (as in "please reply by return mail"). I'm particularly interested in whether this connotes that the reply should be prompt. Would a reply posted 18 months later still be a reply by "return mail"? Any help would be most appreciated.
