Your computer stops working. All your remote working has taken its toll on a personal laptop you never indented to use this extensively. You panic because you can’t go into the office, and there’s nothing your remotely-working IT person can do when your machine can’t turn on.
In the early 2000’s, RPost coined the term “Legal Proof®” to describe what one received when they sent a Registered Email™ message. There is no such thing as “Illegal Proof”, so what could “Legal Proof®” really represent?
We at Tech Essentials realize this has been a doozy of a week in terms of news—mostly political and mostly bad. For those who needed a respite from Tuesday’s chaotic debate and the torrent of election-focused headlines, we offered a live virtual conference yesterday that highlighted how customers are using RPost’s RMail and RSign products to optimize financial processes, transaction automation and affordability with feature-rich e-sign and e-security.
Today the Labor Department released a report that showed over 20 million jobs were lost in April alone, boosting the unemployment rate to nearly 15%. These are levels perhaps never seen by any living American. Even as people start to venture out to beaches and parks that are opening up, most people are still remaining inside — spending more time in their home email (i.e. Gmail, Hotmail, Outlook.com, Outlook Online, and other mobile and browser email programs).
Wow! It is strange that one still trusts a printed or PDF’d email as a record of who said what when.
Microsoft did its best to make it clear that any email can be easily altered, with a few mouse clicks.
It is well accepted worldwide that the Registered Receipt™ email record is the gold standard for email proof — timestamped and verifiable proof of successful email delivery including content delivered, regardless of recipient settings, and without need for any recipient compliant action.
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.
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 insert the letter?
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.
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, after the online “cheating” site’s virtually non-existent cybersecurity practices allowed the compromise of all its 36 million users worldwide.
