Remote control mail

According to CC News, a Portland,Oregon based company has come up with a remote control mail service. The new service allows users to manage their postal mail like they do their e-mail, from any computer in the world, any hour of the day.

Users of the service are able to redirect their postal mail and can then go online to view scanned images of envelopes in their now-virtual postal mailbox. With a click of a mouse users can then selectively choose which mail pieces to have opened, scanned and presented electronically, which to shred or recycle, and which to transfer to another user or have forward-shipped to another location such as home, field office or hotel.

Dr. Ken Lynn, former Assistant Postmaster General of the US Postal Service is quoted as saying, “Not since the introduction of email and cell phones has there been such an innovation in communications technology that people can experience first-hand. On-paper communication is still pivotal in our society, despite the advances of digital alternatives, but now businesspeople and consumers can finally roam free anywhere in the world and still remain in touch as if they had never left their home base.”
