Anytime Mailbox vs. Earth Class Mail
Virtual Mail Service Review & Comparison
How Anytime Mailbox Works
Founded in 2013, Anytime Mailbox was created with a mission to “develop a secure, scalable, and easy-to-use tool for mail recipients and mail center operators that turns postal mail into immediately available digital mail.”
Anytime Mailbox is a software only solution and they do not manage or process mail on behalf of any of their clients. Their business relies on building a network of mailbox store operators that subscribe to the Anytime Mailbox software service, and enable virtual mailbox for the operators’ customers.
How Earth Class Mail is different from Anytime Mailbox
High-Resolution Mail Scanning – Anytime Mailbox relies on independent mailbox store operators to open and take pictures of your mail using their personal smartphone and the Anytime Mailbox app, then delivers simple image files (JPEG format). At Earth Class Mail, we use advanced commercial scanners for true high-resolution imaging. Every scan is then converted to PDF and enabled with full-text search. So you can manage and search your physical documents as easily as email.
Clear & Consistent Pricing – Nearly every address in Anytime Mailbox’s network of independent operators has a different plan and pricing structure. This makes it difficult to compare, places customer service responsibility onto the operator, and makes it even more difficult to scale your local address presence. With us, you get a simple to understand pricing structure, plans that include a lot more usage by default, and clear rates on any add-ons like additional addresses from $20/mo. Not to mention, a single point of contact for world-class support to help you with your account.
Quality Addresses & PO Boxes – We operate all of the addresses in our network. So you get the same features and service regardless of location. Plus, you can choose from some of the most desirable locations in the country, like: Market St., Park Ave., Seattle, Hollywood and many more.
Thousands of businesses, large and small, trust Earth Class Mail to the tune of more than 100,000 mail items each month!

I am currently dealing with Regus and they do advertise mailbox forwarding. The reviews online are all very good but in my case, I have had nothing but problems. I sent a test piece of mail to see if it was forwarded to me and nothing came through.Warrior Forum
