I don't think anyone gets something that is truly spam in physical mail. Due to its cost, it's targeted beyond the level that I associate with spam. I think they need something like a 1% response to make it worthwhile, so they make sure they're selling something at least slightly useful and at least make sure people who use it live in the area they're sending to. I don't think email spammers make any attempt at all to target it.
