Through certified and secure means of communication, METAPOSTA replaces traditional postal services and in the electronic world plays the same role as the traditional letterbox. METAPOSTA provides an individual, personal and unique Internet-based telematic application, equivalent to an electronic letterbox and digital strongbox.

The “Delivery Service” allows the reception and digital filing of electronic documentation and notifications sent via a connection with the computer systems of each one of the senders of documentation with whom METAPOSTA has signed a contract and allows the delivery, by electronic means and in a secure manner, of any documentation that the sender may wish to send. Communications between senders and between the internal systems of METAPOSTA are carried out in accordance with certified messaging standards. Additionally, METAPOSTA offers users Internet-based electronic strongbox functions that allow the secure storage of those documents they may wish to keep in a personal space.
