GRAND CAYMAN, Cayman Islands, and LOS ANGELES—December 6, 2007 – The Cayman Islands Postal Service (CIPS) and RPost®, the leader in managed outbound messaging with its flagship Registered E-mail® services, today announced that they have entered into a multi-year partnership. Under terms of the agreement, CIPS will offer RPost’s Registered E-mail services to its 68,000 corporate customers, including over 500 banks, 800 insurers and 5,000 mutual funds. The RPost service will allow CIPS business customers to dramatically reduce their annual communications costs by offering a viable electronic option to high-cost courier and overnight delivery services.

By adding RPost capabilities to its menu of business solutions and value-added services, CIPS now manages the entire mail stream—both paper-based and electronic correspondence. With RPost’s Registered E-mail services, CIPS customers can send international business correspondence—including contracts, notifications and general information—via e-mail with verifiable proof of message delivery, content and time stamp for messages sent to any Internet address. RPost powers a set of high-value outbound messaging services for client records management, compliance, e-discovery, paper reduction and cost reduction initiatives.

The Cayman Islands Postal Service is at the forefront in providing advanced messaging technology to support the growing number of banks, insurers and legal firms conducting business in this thriving offshore financial center and internationally. These companies communicate heavily with business partners, litigants and customers both locally and abroad, and require a fast, cost-effective method of communicating critical information via e-mail that also provides legal assurance and proof that would be admissible into evidence, ,should message content be challenged in court.

“With this RPost alliance, the Postal Service has a wonderful new service to offer to our customers. Internet-based technologies have become such an intrinsic part of daily corporate communications that postal services everywhere are challenged to use these technologies to add value to and enhance traditional postal operations,” said Sheena Glasgow, Postmaster General of the Cayman Islands Postal Service.

“RPost’s Registered E-mail services are a strategic new offering for our financial and international business clientele which allows them the capability to conduct legal transactions, bind agreements, and send enforceable notifications globally, instantly with just the click of a mouse. RPost’s Registered E-Mail services will revolutionize the way our customers send important documents, even the most confidential ones, at a fraction of the cost of courier delivery with the speed of e-mail,” she added.

“With more business communications and contractual transactions taking place electronically, our alliance with RPost extends our commitment to building the most business-friendly global financial center possible. RPost’s Registered E-mail services will revolutionize the way our customers send important documents, even the most confidential ones, at a fraction of the cost of courier delivery with the speed of e-mail,” she added.

The Cayman Islands Postal Service and RPost have bundled the cost of e-mail delivery proof, time stamping, encrypting, PDF conversion, information leak prevention, e-contracting, and e-signing into one flat per unit price of CI$1– traditional courier services cost between $18 and $30, depending on weight and destination. RPost outbound messaging services can be used from every desktop, laptop or handheld PC, offering CIPS customers a flexible and convenient platform for sending documents and managing electronic records.“The Cayman Island Postal Service is internationally savvy in terms of recognizing the importance of offering its customers an alternative method to traditional courier services that provide assurance, tracking capabilities and proof of delivery, while saving time and reducing costs,” says Zafar Khan, CEO of RPost. “Due to RPost’s unique authentication capability, RPost’s Registered E-mail service save companies money otherwise spent on storage, e-mail records management, and electronic discovery requests, fax, and courier, and enables CIPS customers to instantly gain greater accountability and protection for their communications as well as the ability to sign documents and legally bind agreement by e-mail.”

RPost’s Registered E-mail services include more than ten message protection options, integrated into one platform. RPost closes the delivery gap in electronic communications that may result when unprotected e-mail messages are disputed with respect to content, delivery status, or time. Unlike alternative messaging approaches, RPost services are simple to install, fully integrated, and require no recipient action or software.
