Web sites operated by UK businesses and charities are required to 
include physical street addresses for contacting the owner and, where 
relevant, company numbers or charity numbers.

although non-compliance is an indicator of a possibly dodgy site.

Emails are not formal business letters, whatever businesses may want.
RFC1855 says there should be an address here, but, in a world of spam,
that is no longer good advice, as archive address hiding may not work.
