When we go to the post-office to mail or receive something, they must be attached with a postmark. Then why should email be left unstamped? We think this a defect and this is the source of our idea to add a timestamp to every email. We have applied patent for this solution.

When a user click the send button, MeSince will retrieve the time stamp data from the timestamp server of MeSince to attach to the email. The recipient of this email will then be confirmed of the sending time of the email, as the screenshot shows below. Note: there are sources of time, one is the receiving time by the mail server (which is not trusted because mail server time can be modified). The time on the timestamp is a trusted time, which is prevented from forging, tampering and repudiation. It can be used as legal evidence on a court.

In the screenshot below, the mail server time is, 10:52:46, Sept. 17, 2018 and the timestamp time is 10:48:28, Sept 17, 2018. Mail server time is not a trusted time. Normally, there won’t be any issue with the mail server time, but it is wise to take precautions.

Just as a postal mail must be stamped with a postmark, sending an email should also be stamped by a time stamper, and only MeSince has done it for you in the world for free!
