Postage should be paid in full when the sender mails the envelope or package. If the sender has not affixed the correct number of stamps or has neglected to stamp the envelope or package, the addressee will be liable for the postage if he wishes to receive the mail. If you get a notice in your mailbox that you have received mail which needs extra postage, you can still get your mail if you pay the outstanding fee.
