 想亲手写邮件告诉别人自己已经死亡吗?现在有 (来源:英语麦当劳-英语杂志 http://www.EnglishCN.com)

办法拉!

It"s one of the greatest cliches of all time: Be sure you tell everyone you

 love how you feel, because you never know how much time anyone of

us have.

MyLastEmail.com takes that sentiment one step further: e-mail the important people in your life from beyond the grave.

Just two weeks old, the site has had "5 million hits since the launch," according to founder Karen Peach. A three-year membership costs $9.99 and initially offered members a "portfolio" of five e-mails.

But due to the morbidly positive feedback she"s gotten, Peach says that in the next week the site will begin offering unlimited e-mails and a total of 5 megabytes of space for the same price.

And until your demise, nothing is permanent - you can create new messages or edit old ones.

Upon registering, members are sent an "identification document"; Peach suggests keeping it in a safety deposit box, or wherever one would keep a will. It"s a printable PDF form that indicates that, upon the client"s passing, MyLastEmail.com is authorized to release all final emails. A registration number and bar code are included for identification, and no e-mails are sent until a death certificate has been processed.

As ghoulish as the philosophy behind the site may seem, Peach says she is seriously attempting to provide a service. Indeed, MyLastEmail.com"s terms say that no e-mails be read by the staff.

And for those skeptics who would call the site a scam - after all, why not just write actual letters for free, and sock those away - Peach counters with a valid argument: who writes letters anymore? Or even pays bills through the mail?

Still, she admits, "this isn"t for everybody."

As for how successful the site will be in fulfilling its mission - well, that"s something Peach won"t know till one of her subscribers dies.

"I"m happy to say that none of our customers have passed away," she says. "But by this time next year, it"s entirely possible."
