Rpost Expands Presence In France Through Alliance To Ensure Legal Email Records
Los Angeles, CA (Jul/Aug 2009) - RPost(R), a leader in value-added outbound messaging with its flagship Registered E-mail delivery proof and eSignOff electronic contract execution services, which enhances and safeguards online activity (ensuring email records) today announced that Mailwatcher, France's leading e-mail management and security company, has partnered with RPost to offer RPost's Registered E-mail, eSignOff, SideNote, and Proof Archive services to large enterprise clients in France. RPost services are localized in French, among many other languages.
"We have tested demand for RPost services among our clients and the result was overwhelmingly positive," remarks Philippe Bolac, CEO of Mailwatcher. "As our clients rely on Mailwatcher to bring them the best e-mail security services, the RPost services are a natural complement to our portfolio and meet a growing demand from our customers who are becoming increasingly aware of legal risks associated with their business critical e-mail." Established in 2001, Mailwatcher offers e-mail services to 70 percent of the largest 100 corporations in France.
With e-mail evidence standards now accepted in France, users in a variety of business sectors, functional areas, or operating under certain regulations must insure the quality of their e-mail records. Cyril Margnat, co-founder of MailWatcher and a lawyer remarks, "the alliance with RPost to provide Registered E-mail services, with timestamping and proof of signature, is the ideal functional complement to our message archiving solution. Through this partnership, our customers will benefit from the best of our respective technologies to gain the advantage in case of dispute involving e-mail."
RPost's core Registered E-mail service provides the sender legally valid and court admissible evidence of e-mail correspondence occurring from the sender's desktop e-mail or directly from applications providing Mailwatcher clients with evidence of delivery, content, and timing of any e-mail, without requiring recipients to download any software, click links, or visit special websites to open and read messages. RPost offers additional services, such as eSignOff(TM) which enables a one-click-signoff-by-email with an evidentiary record of the signoff provided to both parties that has evidential weight equal to "wet-ink" signatures on contracts–eliminating the print/sign/scan/fax/mail signoff process. The complete RPost platform is offered at a flat per e-mail price, which is about the cost of a postage stamp and only a small fraction of typical courier charges. Monthly and annual all-inclusive services plans are also available.
"We are pleased that Mailwatcher has identified RPost services as market leading and has the confidence to deploy RPost services within its trusted client relationships worldwide," remarks Zafar Khan, RPost's CEO.
