USPS cancels its PosteCS e-mail service

A lack of consumer interest and the need to cut costs have prompted the Postal Service to discontinue its PosteCS international Internet message delivery service.

The two-year-old PosteCS lets users track messages and receive proof of delivery along with sender and receiver authentication.

PosteCS will no longer accept new customers or transactions, but it will deliver current messages, spokeswoman Sue Brennan said.

The Postal Service will continue reviewing its other e-commerce services. Brennan said she expects e-commerce to be a big part of a transformation plan USPS must submit to Congress April 4.

USPS also announced it is adding a change of e-mail address function to its site. Return Path Inc. of New York will provide the service, which should be available later this month.
