It is always nice to keep up with the times, which is why online service Outbox exists with the main purpose of giving an electronic inbox to your snail mail. Basically, when you create an account with them for a relatively low fee of $4.99 each month, followed by attaching a photo of your mailbox key, the Outbox service will then pick your mail up three days in a week. These mail will be taken over to their secure warehouse, and they will open, scan and store your mail. Should you happen to receive a package instead, these will be delivered to your doorstep or at the front desk within the same day itself.

With Outbox, this means you can access your snail mail at any time of the day regardless of where you are, as long as there is an Internet connection, using the Outbox app on your iPad or over a Web browser. It not only helps you save space at home, you have less filing to do, and to have someone sort out your junk mail is always a good thing. Outbox will shred and recycle any unrequested mail after 30 days. Of course, those of you who are more old school and would love to hold a physical love letter in your hand will prefer things to remain as they are. After all, you cannot spray perfume on an e-mail, can you?
