Can You Put A Monetary Value on Proof? “It’s Worth At Least A Million Dollars.” According to One Relieved RMail Customer While it’s very common to hear from attorneys and law firms who use RMail for their high-profile cases in district and circuit courts, here we share a story from one RMail user, where the value of our Registered Email™ receipt was literally, his family’s home. After a set of unfortunate circumstances, Bank of America started foreclosure [...]

Court Admissible and Verifiable Proof of Email Delivery with RMail

November 16, 2017 / in Blog, Registered Email™ / by Zafar Khan, RPost CEO

The Certified Mail Envelope Was Empty You show up in court with a US Certified Mail “Green Card” delivery receipt, evidence that supposedly proves you delivered a timely notice. The other party simply stands up and says quizzically, “Sure we got the certified letter, but no one in our office could figure out why we were sent an empty envelope!” And of course, there’s no proof of what was or wasn’t inside the envelope. Did the mail room attendant or administrator forget to i [...]

August 31, 2017 / in Blog, Registered Email™ / by Zafar Khan, RPost CEO

Millennials Bewitched by Email Millennials are, surprisingly, bewitched by email.  More than half of Millennials ages 18 to 24 check their email while still in bed in the morning, and 43% of Millennials ages 25 to 34 report doing the same thing. We were shocked to learn that Millennials prefer to check their email on a PC rather than their smartphone. While many people obsess about social media, and some are communicating more with text messages, email still rules, [...]

Data Privacy Compliance Audits Target Small Businesses

April 13, 2017 / in Blog, Encryption/Security / by Zafar Khan, RPost CEO

As consumer awareness of data privacy issues increases, companies that don’t take their clients’ data privacy seriously are getting hit harder and harder. In healthcare, a Florida healthcare provider paid a $5.5 million fine (a HIPAA record) earlier this year for allowing more than 115,000 patient records to be improperly accessed and disclosed. Last year, Ashley Madison paid almost $1.6 million to settle charges related to Federal Trade Commission (FTC) enforcement of data privacy laws, aft [...]

How Fashion House Hermes and Multinational Corporations Secured Legal Wins with Email

February 06, 2017 / in Blog, Encryption/Security / by Zafar Khan, RPost CEO

Many attorneys, paralegals, HR professionals, and professional service providers steer clear of email when sending legal notices (or notices they are legally obligated to send). Some incorrectly think of email as a medium for only casual or inconsequential correspondence. The truth, however, is that email is often even better than courier or postal delivery for notices with legal implications — but only when coupled with a service that provides certified proof of electronic delivery, time of d [...]

Claim Denied Due to Missing Email

October 06, 2016 / in Blog, Registered Email™ / by Zafar Khan, RPost CEO

At Frankel Insurance, staff sent an email to bind additional commercial property to an existing policy. Later, a claim was submitted to the insurance carrier, and the carrier denied having a record of the additional property having been added to the policy. Who said what when is often the core of many business disputes. With email notices, it is often not who sent what when, but rather, who sent what, when was it received, and what did it say? In this [...]

Are eSignatures Legal?

June 02, 2016 / in Blog, Electronic Signatures / by Zafar Khan, RPost CEO

People use eSignatures every day without even realizing they’re “eSigning” — signing on an electronic signature pad at grocery store check-out, replying to an email with a typed confirmation of terms, or putting in a PIN code for a debit card transaction, for example. Most people have no doubts about the legality of these everyday “eSign” transactions. Yet, according to a member poll of the International Association of Commercial and Contract Managers (IACCM), 71% o [...]
