How to contact the University of Trento


The regular email is the main instrument for written communication via the Internet. Different from PEC, the email does not guarantee the message integrity, the sender identity, the date of transmission, the certainty of the receipt. The receipt notice or reading confirmation the user can set in his regular email client have not legal-evidential value. In case of dispute in front of a court of law, the emails can be freely considered as evidence by the judge also if they have not the value of a certainty.


It is an email system fit to provide the guarantees the regular email is not able to ensure, as it is equivalent to a registered letter with return-receipt: it guarantees, in fact, the integrity of the message, the date of transmission, and the certainty of the receipt, by employing receipts the law recognises as evidence. As for the return-receipt registered letter, the PEC must be used to communicate in electronic format when it is necessary to have proof of dispatch and delivery.
