    An email is not the same as a letter. It is partway between a letter and a telephone call. Really, sort of more like a postcard, IN MORE RESPECTS than one (in many ways, particularily) in the sense that it's not private, and dont COUNT ON ITS BEING (private).

    The essential ingredients of form for emails are the address..."

    An email is not the same as a letter. It is partway between a letter and a telephone call. Really, sort of more like a postcard, IN MORE RESPECTS than one (=in more than just one way) in the sense that it's not private, and don't COUNT ON ITS BEING (don't rely on the idea that it is private, don't think that you can be confident that it is private).

    An email is like a postcard in at least two respects :(1) it is a brief communication (ii) a postcard is not in an envelope so the postman can read it, and anyone else who handles the mail until you receive it can also.

    So, they are similar in more than one way, IN MORE RESPECTS THAN ONE.
