# Removing the line and address from scrlttr

scrlttr2 seems to set a line with the address on it. I can't figure out which of the many scrlttr2 options turns it off.

\documentclass{scrlttr2}
\setkomavar{fromname}{Seamus}
Solar System\\
Milky Way\\
The Universe}
\begin{document}
\begin{letter}{TeX\\
Stackexhange\\
dot com\\
The internet}
\opening{Dear TeXnicians}

\closing{Yours hopefully}
\end{letter}
\end{document}


I am trying to remove the rule, and the text highlighted...

-

To remove the line and the text, add backaddress=off to the class options. To remove just the line, add backaddress=plain to the class options.

Set the KOMA variable backaddress to be empty:

\setkomavar{backaddress}{}


or see Michael's suggestion.

To remove the reserved space, set the pseudolength backaddrheight to 0:
