History of Western Union’s Mailgram Service:
Mailgram is a type of telegraphic message which was transmitted electronically from the sender to a post office and then printed and delivered to the recipient via postal means.
Western Union invented the Mailgram in 1970. Service via Westar, Western Union’s own communications satellite was introduced in 1974.
The advantage of a Mailgram over postal mail was speed and verifiability of transmission; they were widely used in official notifications and legal transactions. Their advantage over full-rate telegrams was lower cost while still maintaining the look and feel of an important Western Union Telegram. The Mailgram quickly became a widely-used medium for business-to-consumer communications.
Western Union discontinued all telegram messaging, including Mailgram, in 2006.
In the fall of 2013, Electronic Post Office Corporation will launch it’s own version of Mailgram as a valued added service and product to its very successful Facsimile Broadcasting, Email Broadcasting and Direct Mail line of Services.
What will make Electronic Post Office Mailgram new, exciting and cost effective is it’s addition to the Electronic Post Office.
