Are Virtual Mailboxes Legal?

In a world full of email, texting and instant messaging, physical mail has almost become a thing of the past. However, some very important information still comes sealed in a little white envelope.

Notices from the IRS, insurance companies, the DMV, and more often make their way through snail mail—and when running a business, the last thing you need is for important information to get tossed away with the plethora of fast food coupons filling your residential mailbox.

That’s where a virtual mailbox can come in handy. Easy to set up, simple to maintain, and completely legal, virtual mailboxes bring physical mail into the virtual realm.

What Is a Virtual Mailbox?

A virtual mailbox is a service that scans all of your physical mail and transfers it to a digital format.

In the same way a P.O. box gives your business an address, a virtual mailbox will provide you with a physical address where your mail can be delivered. From there, the service scans your letters and transfers them to an online mailbox that you can access and organize as you please.

Why Are Virtual Mailboxes Better Than Physical Mailboxes?

In addition to lower travel and time expenses (no need to regularly drive to pick up mail from the post office), virtual mailboxes are great for organizational purposes. All mail is stored on a secure platform for as long as you like, meaning you can keep important documents like receipts and payment confirmations for years. And with advanced search features, you can quickly sort through and find documents at the push of a button.

Although we’re living in the 21st century, receiving mail the old-fashioned way is still necessary for many, many things. Virtual mailboxes help marry the ease and convenience of email with the security and formality of traditional mail.
