==Opening Mail==
# It’s forbidden to tear or steam a letter open on Shabbat. It’s permissible to tell a non-Jew that it’s forbidden to open letters on Shabbat so that the non-Jew will understand to open it as this is not a command but only a hint. <Ref>Shemirat Shabbat KeHilchata 30:2 </ref> Similarly, it’s permissible to benefit from the letter since the action of the non-Jew was applied to the envelope and not to the letter directly. <Ref>Shemirat Shabbat KeHilchata 30:57 </ref>
