LOS ANGELES, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 12/06/12 -- RPost, the inventor of Registered Email® track, prove, sign and encrypt technology, announces The Florida Bar, one of the largest regulatory bodies for lawyers, now offers use of RPost's Registered Email services for high value email and document delivery. The Florida Bar, a regulatory arm of the Supreme Court of Florida with 90,000 lawyer-members, has added RPost services as a new member benefit following the enactment of the new Florida Email Service Rule.
Florida Rules of Judicial Administration now require service of court documents to opposing counsel by email and relies upon the sender to track and prove delivery of said emails, and any attachments, to the intended recipient. "Without court-admissible proof of delivery of email, the sending lawyer is leaving himself or herself exposed to recipient claims of non-receipt of documents. This can bring uncertainty to litigation deadlines," notes RPost CEO Zafar Khan, referring to issues to be considered with regards to the new Florida Email Service Rule. "While the Supreme Court of Florida does not require the sending of documents by RPost's Registered Email service, RPost recognizes that sending documents attached to RPost Registered Email messages provides irrefutable and court-admissible proof of time and content received in the form of an RPost Registered Receipt email message -- and as such, has added use of RPost delivery proof services as a best practice guideline." Florida Bar members may now start sending Registered Email messages and receive a special member offer.
"We see RPost's Registered Email services as a tool that can enhance the practice of law for our members and reduce cost for their clients," states Randi Whitehead, Chair of The Florida Bar Member Benefits Committee. "For this reason, our Board has approved RPost services as a new member offering." The Florida Bar now offers as a member benefit RPost Registered Email services for sending documents when you need verifiable and court-admissible proof of delivery, document content, and official time received.
RPost Registered Email services also include email encryption for compliant data privacy, simple to use legal electronic signature services, document metadata cleaning, and more. RPost services can be used from Outlook, Safari, Explorer, Firefox, Chrome, BlackBerry, and iPad or Android tablets.
