Outbox is a fascinating new service that helps you manage your postal mail like email. Here’s how it works: They pick up your mail from your mailbox three days a week, take it to their secure warehouse, open, scan and store your mail. You then can access your mail anywhere on your iPad or the web. If you click “request” on any piece of mail, they’ll deliver any requested mail in a beautiful package right to your front door or front desk twice a week. And they shred and recycle any unrequested mail after 30 days.
I am definitely intrigued by the idea of accessing all my mail digitally. But am not ready, adventurous enough to sign up for this yet.
