Validity of notice by email


Notice by Email


What is the legal standing of a Notice sent by email?

How does the sender prove sending the notice if the receiver denies having received it?

Is there any law/SC ruling on notices sent by email?

Since e-mail does not have signature of the sender. Therefore the notice is without signature of the sender is not consider by the court of law.
