I have become as paperless as I possibly can. The next stage is going to be signing up for the Canada Post ePost service. The only concern that I have is whether the service providers that send out their bills this way are able to send you their junk mail this way as well. Shaw Cable seems to send out more junk mail than bills. Not that I want more bills, but their junk mail is way over the top these day.

Can anyone who is using this give me their experience with using the epost account ?

I use EPOST, never had a single junk mail! I even have it set with my pay stubs! Never even cross my mind about junk mail.

I don't use Epost as it is a third party bill provider or bill forwarder. I get my bills notified directly from the biller. I pay for all my bills via my bank account using their bill payment system too. Most of them can accept CC payments, so I use that as much as possible, as I get cash back. All my bills are now saved on PDF on my computer. A way better way of saving your bills.

I cut down on my paper bills to all but one. I still cant get figure out how to get that on ebilling yet.

I've used it for years. No junk mail.

I've never received unsolicited mail via epost - it is not a general purpose e-mail account. It is a purposeful system meant for billing, pay stubs, etc. only. I'm also not fond of keeping local files either because I don't think my own data backup practices are any better than epost's (which guarantees mail kept for seven years).
