Take your physical mail online

When you sign up for My DakotaMail, your online mail portal works just like an email account. Get a complete view of your mail in a single dashboard, open each envelope to see inside, and then action it as needed.

Stay on top of incoming mail

Organize your mail through folders, email the contents of your mail to yourself, save unlimited addresses, and see your mail in high-resolution images that you can enlarge for reading smaller print.

Keep track of mail in and mail out

Your tracking information dashboard shows your last five trackable mailings, and your mail is automatically reconciled when sent.  This means what you see in your virtual mailbox is what is in your physical mailbox here at DakotaPost.
