Title
(EN) Method for the certification of electronic mail delivery
Abstract
(EN)

The object of the invention is a method to receive and send electronic mail from a transmitting user to a recipient, generating proof of the operation transactions to submit the transmitting user a certificate as a trusted third party. To that end, it features the steps of reception in a mail server of a copy of the first electronic message sent by the transmitting user to the recipient, the later delivery of a copy of the first electronic message to the recipient together with a particular indication, so that the recipient receives a second electronic message copy of the first electronic message from the mail server, which comprises that particular indication. Finally, the data processing unit creates an electronic document with the transactional data of the delivered copy and signs it digitally creating a certificate that is sent to the initial user.
