        We use forwarders for such tasks. Jim, our lead forwarder, says
that it takes a lot of patience and a good HMO (due to excessive paper
cuts) but the job is a pretty secure one. 

         

        Speaking of secure, why would you ever need public or private
keys when you can always used armed courier and flash paper? If someone
tries to hijack it, the paper incinerates. Yeah, you lose the paper and
probably the courier, but here in corporate America, we call it
collateral damage. I suppose an electronic form of secure mail might
keep all of those bleeding heart liberals quiet about unnecessary loss
of life, but who are we kidding here? Such a thing is light-years from
even a conceptual phase. 

         

        We do occasionally get mail that is addressed incorrectly
though. Kind of messes up the whole system. We finally decided to hire
someone to take these messages and store them in a bad mail bin until we
can later figure out how to best handle them. Worse than that though is
all of the junk mail. We are calling it spam now, because the first one
we got was from Hormel. It sucks having to read through all of this junk
mail to separate the official from the spam. I guess there will be
another couple of job openings at stone-age inc.

         

        If anyone knows of some sort of program or automated system,
(maybe with robots) that would do all of this for us, I'd really like to
know of it. The savings would be great. Not to mention how it would
knock Jim off of his high horse.

        We call this stamp jacking.

         

        We do find some companies send us mail which needs to be
forwarded on to someone else.

         

        Often we have printed the message, popped it in an envelope and
stamped it before we realise.

         

        We can waste lots of stamps every day with bad mail

         

        So to be able to exchange mail with other servers would be
great,  but to do it in a secure way and therefore waste no more stamps,
I would not even dare to hope such a thing may one day exist.

                If you do develop such a beast, perhaps you could
consider in-built mechanisms to exchange public and private keys,
thereby avoiding the potential for other unscrupulous companies to
hijack your server and send unsolicited messages?  That would be great!

                The only down side to using stamps is the extra paper
and printing costs.

                 

                Our exchange server receives around 3000 emails a day
from the internal users. We print these emails out along with an address
label. These are then packed into an envelope, addressed and stamped
ready for postage.

                 

                We also receive around 4000 letters a day which we open
and type into Exchange so our users can view them electronically.

                 

                With a mail staff of 42 we can deliver and retype all
mail  within 6 hours. 

                 

                I dont know how we managed before we got the Exchange
server but I do dream of the time when someone will develop a mechanism
by which exchange servers and other mail servers could talk to each
other. The time saved printing, posting and retyping mail would be a
huge cost saving for all. They could call is something like Simply Mail
To People.

                 

                Any one fancy trying to develop that?
