Libero Mail PEC: how the service works

Sending a PEC from your Libero Mail PEC box works differently than sending a standard email. In the case of a normal email, the process of sending is simple: you open a new draft of the message, you enter in the appropriate fields the email address of the recipient and the subject, the text, any attachments and then proceed to send.

In the case of a certified email, the operation does not end by clicking on "Send" after composing the message, but is divided into three phases: sending, receiving and sending the delivery receipt. After composing the message and sending it, the certified mail server of the sender will perform a series of formal checks on the received message, sending in turn to the sender an acceptance receipt confirming that the email has been accepted by the system at a specific date and time. The acceptance receipt is then signed by the sender's PEC manager.

The original message is placed in a transport message, or transport envelope, of S/MIME type, which will contain the original message and all the data certifying the transport itself. Only at this point, the email leaves the sender and is sent to the recipient's domain through the receiving point, which performs the necessary checks on the origin of the PEC and on the correctness of the message.

If all checks are positive, the message is forwarded to the delivery point, which sends to the sender the receipt of delivery of the PEC, the analogue of the return receipt of a normal registered mail.
