Electronic Bankruptcy Noticing, Internet E-mail, and Fax Service Now
I am pleased to announce that the United States Bankruptcy Court for the
Western District of Wisconsin is now offering a new way for you to
receive bankruptcy notices from the court. You may now choose to receive
overnight bankruptcy notices via Internet e-mail or transmitted as a fax
to your office. Electronic noticing will provide the notices faster than
the U.S. Mail.
Should you elect the Internet e-mail alternative, your e-mail provider
must be able to provide an electronic acknowledgment of receipt indicating
that the electronic notice was delivered to the intended electronic
mailbox. One form of electronic acknowledgment used by some providers is
the Delivery Service Notification (DNS) standard. However, some
other electronic acknowledgment formats are also supported. The notice
itself will be attached to the message as a file in Adobe's Portable
Document Format (PDF). A free Acrobat PDF reader and browser plug-in is
available from Adobe's web site.
Please visit the Electronic Bankruptcy Noticing web page
for detailed information about this free electronic noticing service
including a list of known DSN compliant e-mail providers. See both the Electronic
Noticing Implementation Guide and Electronic Bankruptcy Noticing
Questions and Answers. To initiate this service, an Electronic
Bankruptcy Noticing Agreement must be signed and returned to the
Bankruptcy Noticing Center.
Your participation in the free electronic bankruptcy noticing program
is encouraged since we believe it will offer many benefits to both you and
the court. However, you can continue to receive printed bankruptcy
notices in the mail, just as you do now.
For complete electronic noticing information, visit the electronic
noticing web page or call the Bankruptcy Noticing Center toll-free at 1-877-837-3424 for
free technical support. You may also contact the Clerk's Office
Electronic Noticing Coordinator, Julie Ellingson, at 608-261-5751, for a
copy of an Electronic Bankruptcy Noticing Agreement.
