Mailing back formal offer letters

Maybe I just don't get it because I'm not into snail mail at all.

A friend of mine was offered a job Monday. They emailed her the former offer letter. They want her to snail mail it back.

Wouldn't it just be quicker to FAX it in, signed and dated and to perhaps hand-deliver the original upon arrival the first day of work?

I mean, they want her to start on 9 May 2005.

Why bother with snail mail when a fax will suffice and the original hard copy can be filed in person?
