RPost Honored as Finalist for Prestigious IBM Lotus Award

RPost Registered E-Mail Service Recognized as a Finalist in the Best Messaging and Collaboration Solutions Category

LOS ANGELES, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- February 15, 2007 -- RPost® US Inc., a leader in managed outbound messaging with its flagship Registered E-mail® service suite, today announced that its technology was recognized as a finalist in the Messaging and Collaboration Solutions category for the 13th annual IBM Lotus Awards. The 2007 award was granted to IBM PartnerWorld member Gaia Informatica for its leadership in enhancing IBM Lotus software solutions with RPost's Registered E-mail services.

The IBM Lotus Awards recognize exceptional IBM PartnerWorld members that specialize in Lotus software solutions and have excelled at providing quality products, innovative solutions and superior services to customers.

RPost Registered E-mail service allows users to send critical e-mail messages and electronic documents with verifiable proof of delivery and the atomic clock time-stamp. RPost e-mail users are returned legally valid evidence of precisely what e-mail content and attachments were sent and received, by whom and when. For the highest assurance of confidentiality, the RPost system does not retain a copy of the original e-mail, unlike alternative "store and forward" solutions, nor does it require e-mail recipients to download specialized software, click on links, or enter any passwords.

E-mail is one of the most efficient methods of communication for enterprise users. However, traditional e-mail applications are unable to verify the content of e-mail messages or prove legally that a message was actually received. With RPost, e-mail users can comfortably use RPost Registered E-mail messages for electronic business communications that have consequence, such as binding property to contracts and proposals. By arming users with verifiable proof of delivery and content, e-mail suddenly becomes a viable alternative to overnight delivery of business critical information and allows organizations to save significant time and money.

"We are honored to be named a finalist for the distinguished IBM Lotus Award and recognition of RPost as one of the best in messaging and collaboration solutions," said Zafar Khan, co-founder and CEO of RPost. "This award validates RPost for creating a simple, cost-effective method that shores up the last-mile security gap in traditional electronic business communications, enabling IBM Lotus Notes and Domino customers to send Registered E-mail messages with legal proof of delivery for their most critical business purposes."
