Australia Post digital mailbox exits beta

Australia Post has revealed that its digital mailbox service left beta testing and has been formally released.

The digital mail service, intended to be a more secure version of email for bills and other important documents, went into public beta last year.

An Australia Post spokeswoman said the postal service continues to add providers supporting service.

In addition to the formal launch of the digital mailbox, Australia Post said it would also scale up its physical mail services, including year-round delivery on Saturdays. The announcement comes at a time when debate in the United States occurs around whether to kill Saturday deliveries to save money for the US Postal Service.
