In what may have been an unfortunate case of good timing, the company PaperlessPOBox.com launched this September. What they do is have you send all your mail to a post office box, which is picked up by a carrier. They then have automated systems to scan your mail and email it to you as a PDF file. Right now it’s mostly being used by people who are travelling a lot, so they don’t miss out on important mail. However, one person has signed up for the service to “protect” themself from anthrax.
