Just as well, people could fire themselves with a firework. Locomotives became high-speed trains and the stagecoaches disappeared from the post system. The post, which used to take several weeks, arrives after a few days and modern communication systems like fax, telephone and email were established.
Yet the contract laws of this times and a rule such as the postal rule are still legally binding and therefore the modern systems and especially email have to be integrated into the legal system. The purpose of this term paper is to critically discuss the arguments for and against the question, does the postal rule apply to email?
In the first chapter the general formation of a contract is noted as well as the history and application of the postal rule are explained. Accordingly in the second chapter the process of communication by email is described and the different arguments for and against the main question are critically discussed.
Finally the conclusion of the term paper is collectively assessed.

First the offeror makes an offer to the offeree. After verifying this offer the offeree accept it. Subsequently the contract is legally binding.
In the process the communication between the parties is fundamental. The communication does not take effect until the party, to whom the communication is addressed, receive and understand it.
This is the rule that applies to offers. And this leads to the general rule of acceptance that the contract is only binding if the offeror has received the acceptance of the offeree. However, there are many different forms of communication like face-to-face conversations, letters, telephone, faxes or email.
In some of these there is a period of time between the sending of the acceptance and the receiving by the offeror.
In relation to the post, this problem was solved by the introduction of the postal rule as an exception to the general rule. The postal rule as accepted in the common law legal system: Therefore the postal rule may be the best option in deciding the moment that the parties reach the declaration of intent at the time of posting the letter, than at the later time when the letter is received.College of Arts, Humanities & Sciences College of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences • Master of Arts in Translation Department of English Language and Literature.
