Postal Mail is Undergoing an E-volution

Share Article

Private Box has just started offering a new service to their customers so that they can read their postal mail online. Postal mail is electronically scanned so that customers can read their postal mail from anywhere via the internet. This new service is set to revolutionise the way postal mail is delivered in New Zealand.

Customers are finding this service incredibly simple and easy to use. With one just a few clicks of a mouse they have dealt with all their physical mail

Postal mail remains one of the most antiquated communication channels left in New Zealand. Or it was, until Private Box launched their brand new service - a digital mailroom.

The first of its kind in New Zealand, this online service allows customers to view their postal mail, via the internet from anywhere in the world. Through Private Box (, you can set up one central address to which all post is delivered. You then log-into your secure digital mail room and can access electronic images of your mail. You can download these images or electronically forward the file. Then you decide what to do with that piece of mail, recycle it, shred it, or forward mail to your chosen physical address. "Customers are finding this service incredibly simple and easy to use. With one just a few clicks of a mouse they have dealt with all their physical mail," Steven Morley, Private Box CEO commented.

For businesses, using one central address eliminates customer confusion with a change of address. Or if you regularly travel (for business or pleasure), you can always access and respond to those important pieces of postal mail. But this innovative service not only saves time and money, it also helps the environment. "All paper is recycled here. And because you only forward the mail you need, you're using less resources," added Steven.

With the increasing occurrences of identity fraud, postal mail security is becoming a hot topic. "Throughout our sorting and scanning process all mail is securely handled and carefully monitored to ensure the utmost level of security," Steven commented. And with a digital mailroom, your mail is delivered to a secure post office box, rather than a mailbox on the street.

About Private Box
Set up in 2005, Private Box offers customers an individual address to accept their mail. Customers are sent an alert via email when mail is received, and then advise Private Box where to forward this mail. Now, with the new service, mail can be scanned in and read online. Private Box addresses are used by people over the world, from businesses that need a physical presence in New Zealand, to tourists and immigrants who need a permanent address. Many customers are moving constantly, so a permanent physical address means they're never out of contact with their postal mail.
