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.

Lawyers who practice in Texas stand to save a lot of time and money starting this year. As of January 1, 2014, amendments to Texas rules TRCP 21a(a)(2) and TRAP 9.5(b) now permit service of court documents by email.
An important trend for companies today is use of web-based messaging and CRM platforms such as Salesforce.com to manage, track and/or secure outbound correspondence.
