Zumbox was a digital postal mail system that allows electronic mail to be sent.[2] The service is intended to work in parallel to traditional postal services, whereby a digital mailbox—a Zumbox— has been created for every street address in the U.S.[2]

People had been able to claim their Zumbox via a paper mail confirmation code.[3]

Zumbox provided security in compliance with PCI DSS, BITS and HIPAA security rules and regulations.[4]

Founded in 2007, Zumbox is privately held and is based in Los Angeles, CA. On April 7, 2014 the company announced via email that it was shutting down.
