Snail Mail via Email

By Deane Barker on July 13, 2009

Swiss Post Moves Some Mail Online: This is a natural progression, and one more nail in the coffin of paper mail.

A program introduced by the Swiss Post in June allows subscribers to receive scans of their unopened envelopes by e-mail message and then decide which ones they want opened and scanned in their entirety, to be read online.

Subscribers can also ask to have the contents archived, send unopened letters to another address or have them shredded and recycled.
