There’s a new service coming this year that will offer a digital mailbox to electronically receive mail, pay bills online, and store important files securely using the strength and reliability of the Post brand name. It isn’t the U.S. Post Office offering this service, however. It’s the Australia Post and they’re looking to incorporate electronic diversion into their service lineup.
The Digital MailBox service will offer free personal management apps that will allow its customers to use any electronic device to access the new features. The apps will also include encryption technology to keep private communication private as well as multiple levels of authentication to prevent unauthorized access.
The service is not yet available, but the Australia Post website claims it will arrive in 2012.
Do you think the U.S. Postal Service should offer something similar to the Digital MailBox? Comment here.
