Which class were you using? Internal will look like a memo. Try the
#+GROFF_CLASS: block or #+GROFF_CLASS: semiblock

No, you want to use fullblock, block or semi block.  
What happens with "letter" is that is a throwback from the Bell Labs in 
which the Memo Type 5 was used for letters. It had to be made available
for sake of completeness. 

But, the Groff MM folks created a separate set of macros for letter
writing in which within Org uses a separate class name.
These are simplified, semiblock, fullblock or block. Hopefully these
will give you are looking for.

Let me know if you have any questions.
