RPost and Return Path Announce Partnership
Return Path to resell RPost’s patented Registered Email® solution to its Certification clients
LOS ANGELES, CA and NEW YORK, NY – FEBRUARY 17, 2010 – RPost, the global leader in providing Legal Proof® records in email, and Return Path, Inc., the leading email deliverability and reputation management company, today announced a partnership whereby Return Path will resell RPost’s Registered Email® solution to its Certification clients.
Return Path’s Certification clients will now be able to access an integrated offering whereby outbound messages will incorporate RPost’s proof of delivery technology and Return Path’s Certification service.
“RPost’s patented technology has some unique features which are critical for a number of our clients,” said Matt Blumberg, Chairman & CEO of Return Path. “Many companies who send mission critical email such as financial statements and transactional email are increasingly demanding a higher level of proof of delivery in order to meet regulatory and customer service requirements. The combination of our services will give mailers an even higher degree of confidence when replacing sensitive paper communications with email.”
Return Path’s Certification program provides thousands of qualified commercial mailers with preferential treatment such as the automatic display of images and nearly 100% inbox placement rates at participating mailbox providers including Hotmail, Yahoo, Comcast, Roadrunner, Cox, Earthlink, and those protected by anti-spam solutions including Cloudmark and Spam Assassin. In total, Return Path Certification is in use by more than 2 million domains, covering more than 1.4 billion end client emailboxes worldwide.
Registered Email® by RPost provides the sender legally valid and court-admissible evidence of delivery, content, and timing of any document or notice sent by email, without requiring recipients to download any software, click links, or visit special websites to open and read messages. It has been adopted worldwide by companies in a variety of industries, from large multi-national enterprises to small businesses and home users.
“The combined product will give commercial emailers the best of both worlds,” said Zafar Khan, CEO of RPost. “Return Path’s Certification program is the industry’s largest third-party whitelisting solution and for over 7 years has given commercial mailers a high degree of assurance that their emails are being delivered to inboxes and not blocked or filtered. RPost’s patented Registered Email® solution builds on that foundation to provide legal proof of delivery at the message level.”
The companies will initially focus their joint offering on Return Path’s clients across a number of verticals who want to send their customers statements and official notifications via email, including high value transactional messages.
