I would like to print a DIN C4-size envelope with FROMADRESS and TOADRESS (according to DIN). But I haven't found a solution implemented already in scrlttr2. Is there an easy solution?

Could you please link or explain the DIN specification? And do you insist on scrlttr2 document class? – yo' Jan 13 '13 at 22:24
DIN C4: 324 mm x 229 mm, look here on page 20. – user87665 Jan 13 '13 at 23:29
DIN C4: 324 mm x 229 mm, basically it is divided in quarters. The upper left quarter = FROMADDRESS. It has no outer margins (left, top), FROMADDRESS starts in the left upper corner. The bottom right quarter = TOADDRESS. It is limited by outer margins (15 mm) to the right & bottom. TOADDRESS - First line starts in the upper left corner. – user87665 Jan 13 '13 at 23:44

Markus Kohm has published a solution at KOMA-script’s homepage: \makelabels mit scrlttr2 (it's in English despite the German title). You may either define a special page in your letter, defining corresponding pseudo values. But you may also use the mlabel.lco, which introduce the \makelabelcommand from the standard letter class in scrlttr2. Then, you just have to define a label with the address at the correct places.

Have a look at the examples in the documentation to get some ideas. The envelope may be printed as a page of your letter.
