I am a veteran of the mailing industry and see everyone walking around me with their face buried in some type of device reading emails, paying bills and placing orders. Some of my friends say mail is dead. I’ve been told that if you see it in Mailing Systems Technology magazine it is true. So please tell me the truth, is there a place for mail in the digital world?
