   Yes, email is not a legally recognized document. Electronic signature
*could* make it legally recognizable but it very much depends on the
organization where you send email to and on the certificate you use to
sign mail.
   Contact PSF for details. I doubt python-dev is a proper list to
discuss PSF-related legal issues.
