Lyme – Log your message, the electronic equivalent of registered mail.
Bringing to the digital world the legal formality of registered and signed for postal service.
Created to solve an actual problem, Lyme is the project of a Startup from Braga, Portugal, that started to be developed in the beginning of 2016.
The goal of the platform is to enable a formal delivery log of a traditional e-mail, thus replacing the need to use registered postal service, including in situations where legal formality is needed.
In a nutshell, Lyme is presented as the digital replacement of registered postal service, also offering a wide range of value added advantages that the tradicional system cannot. Among them we can point out being very easy to use, registering the content of the message simultaneously with its transmission, the possibility to send and deliver messages anytime, anywhere in the world, and its reduced costs (free for sporadic use, and up to 90% savings compared to regular registered post for intensive use).
Its functioning model does not need the recipient to be registered and allows the users to send their messages using any of their regular e-mails.
Once a Lyme registered message is sent, the addressee will receive a notification e-mail, through which he is informed that someone would like him to receive a registered e-mail. The addressee, using the link and the pin number in that notification e-mail, will have access to the actions panel. There he will be able to accept the registered message that is being transmitted. Lyme will instantly show the message that had been locked so far, and will send a complete log with all its milestones to both sender and recipient.
A time stamp, issued by a third party, is placed on that log, so that the authenticity of the of the log presented by Lyme can always be verified.
A Lyme log shows in UTC time and in the user’s time zone, besides other information, the moment the message is created, the moment the recipient is notified, the moment the notification is read, the moment the message is accepted and also the text that is part of the sent message.
Lyme is also greatly concerned with the protection of personal data and the messages sent by its users; it is therefore, completely encrypted.
Lyme’s first public presentation took place at the end of June 2017 at the Unbound Conference in London, and it is now being presented publicly in Portugal for the first time at the Web Summit 2017, from 6th until 9th of November.
