New And Improved

Registered Mail

When sending an important document via the Internet, you may wonder if the person you intended it for really received it, or if it somehow got intercepted by, say, a competitor. To help solve this problem, Tumbleweed Software Corp. offers a client-server solution called Tumbleweed Posta that helps users send and receive documents over the Internet in an effective, reliable and secure manner.

After accessing the Posta Web site, users can send documents created in any application simply by entering a recipient's e-mail address and selecting the file. The document is then immediately placed on Posta's server and converted into a portable format for delivery; recipients are notified via e-mail of the Web address where they can view the document. Posta's extensive tracking features allow users to check when the document was sent, if recipients have been notified that they have a message on the Posta server, and if they've received the document.

System requirements include Windows 95, Windows NT 4.0 or Macintosh System 7 (or higher) operating systems; 8MB RAM; and 2.5MB hard-drive space. Users can try out the program by signing up for a free 30-day trial at http://www.tumbleweed.com .
