plus a dozen or so other misc hits that included the words "electronic"
and "mail" but seemed unrelated to email.

	If 209P actually exists, it's not at the Federal level or it cleverly
has not used the words "electronic" or "email" (there are a couple with
"mail" only, but none seem to relate to an email surcharge).
