US Postal Service to deliver email on paper

The US Postal Service soon will test a new system that will take customers' electronic documents, forward them to a printer and put them in the traditional mailstream for delivery.

The Postal Service plans to begin a three-year test of the Mailing Online programme on September 1.

Customers can upload an electronic document, such as a club newsletter, church bulletin, or flier, along with a mailing list of up to 5000 recipients.

The Postal Service then will securely forward the file to a printer near the intended destination of the mailing and then deposit the finished product into the mailstream.

Mailing Online is designed for customers who want to mail a few dozen items to a few thousand pieces at a time.
