Pitney Bowes & RPost Ink Global Deal

Global Mailstream Leader to Resell RPost Outbound Email Messaging Services for Records Management and E-discovery Initiatives.

Los Angeles, June 26, 2007 – Pitney Bowes (NYSE: PBI) and RPost®, the leader in managed outbound messaging with its flagship Registered Email™ services, today announced that they have entered into a global alliance. Under terms of the agreement, Pitney Bowes will offer RPost Registered Email™ services to its mailstream customers.

By adding RPost services, Pitney Bowes can now provide its customers with a full set of high-value outbound messaging tools for client records management, compliance, e-discovery, paper reduction and cost reduction initiatives. RPost Registered Email™ messages provide email senders with verifiable proof of message delivery, content and time stamp for emails sent to any Internet address.

Information-intensive markets, such as legal services, are challenged with managing thousands of records and producing information on demand, faster and more cost-effectively than ever before. The Radicati Group, a leading market research firm in the computer and telecommunications industry, estimates that the average business user sends and receives about 170 email messages per day. Highly sensitive business is conducted via email, with discoverable data scattered across an organization, on mail servers, desktops and mobile devices. The RPost service will enable Pitney Bowes customers to streamline the process of managing and retrieving critical business communications, with an easy-to-use, cost-effective solution.

“RPost offers a full set of outbound messaging services as a pay-as-you-go offering, which can remove messaging security from the IT budget and put it into the mailstream budget where it is a direct cost savings vis-à-vis all traditional means of delivery,” said Dave Hutchinson, president, Pitney Bowes Legal Solutions. “With RPost, Pitney Bowes can now tie outbound electronic messaging to our customers’ mailstream accounts, which fund postal activities as well as other mailstream services and supplies, enabling business users to send Registered Email™ messages simply by debiting the cost of a postage stamp from their Pitney Bowes postage meter account.”

Pitney Bowes and RPost have bundled the cost of email delivery proof, time stamping, encrypting, PDF conversion, information leak prevention, e-Contracting, and e-signing into one flat per unit price – about the cost of a postage stamp. RPost outbound messaging services can be used from every desktop, laptop or handheld PC, offering Pitney Bowes customers a flexible and convenient platform for managing electronic records in the course of complying with e-discovery rules. Unlike traditional email applications that are unable to verify the content of email messages, RPost Registered Email™ users have verifiable evidence of precisely what email content and attachments were sent and received, by whom and when.

“Registered Email™ services are the missing link to managing the electronic mailstream that not only reduce litigation risk, but also save money otherwise spent on storage, email records management, and electronic discovery requests,” says Zafar Khan, CEO of RPost. “Now, with one click of the mouse, Pitney Bowes customers can send a message via Registered Email™ service, debit the cost from their mailstream budget, and retain a detailed electronic trail of the message from sender to receiver. They will instantly gain greater accountability and protection for their communications.”

RPost’s Registered Email™ services include more than ten message protection options, integrated into one platform. RPost closes the delivery gap in electronic communications that may result when unprotected email messages are disputed with respect to content or delivery status. Unlike alternative messaging approaches, RPost services are simple to install, fully integrated, and require no recipient action or software.
