I demand a return address on it as well, including the name of the
sender. Lacking that, I assume they are ashamed of themselves and are
afraid I would not open it if I knew who it was from. So I do not open them.

Return addresses like

Suite 12345
123 Frammis Avenue
Washington, D.C. 98765

go into the trash too. No name, no open.  Of course, some senders also
go straight into the trash, too.

This would not be as useful with e-mail, since I can put any address I
want into the From: field. Of course, people could do that with their
envelopes, too, but they seem to do it less often.
