RPost’s Registered E-mail® service is a critical safeguard against legal liability associated with e-discovery and e-mail message disputes. Unlike the common "read receipt," it protects you, your firm, and your clients with Legal Proof®: legally verifiable proof that your e-mail was delivered (with an official time stamp) and legally verifiable proof of the content sent and received (including attachments). The proof is in the form of a Registered Receipt™ e-mail -- a tamper-detectable record that can be self-authenticated at any time if an aspect of your original message is disputed. Try RPost today to reduce risk, save administrative time, and significantly cut your postage expenses!

RPost services also include other on-demand features at no additional cost, such as electronic signature, encryption, PDF conversion, and many more. Find us at www.rpost.com.

For a free trial, special discounts, and more information on how the Registered E-mail service will enhance your practice, please contact Sean Walsh [Email: swalsh@rpost.com; Call: (702) 998-6193].
