Earth Class Mail update

1 10 2011

Update.

I test drove Mail & Parcel Forwarding, which is exactly what it says it is (duh).
This means Earth Class Mail staff will scan the OUTSIDE of your parcels, and you can use the simple dashboard to see the front and back of your envelopes to determine if you want them to ship the mail to you.

Virtual Mailroom ($19.95 / month) is the service that lets you view the inside of your mail also.
ECM staff will scan your docs, and you never touch paper. Bah, 20 bucks. Bah bah bah.

Test drive 2…





Test Driving Earth Class Mail

27 09 2011

Getting mail at work is a quirk, personal mail anyway.
In all our Sarbanes-Oxley glory, Rebecca opens the mail, I process the bills, Elizabeth cuts checks and so on. Very clear SOP, except when–

“Is this your credit card bill or F4K’s?”
“Is this your TimeWarnerCable bill or ours?”

No big for the being. We’re all friends at work.
But I can only co-opt my work address until Nov. 15…
So this week, I’m test driving Earth Class mail.


For $16 / month, you receive a US mailing address and virtual dashboard to view your mail contents from anywhere. Earth Class will open, upload, PDF, recycle, shred and elsewise process your mail. I’ll test drive this week and post back effectiveness.

I don’t love adding $16 to the $38 monthly already going to Public Storage.
But my mother’s a hoarder and my brother’s AWOL, and I am 37 already.
