From this autumn, a large proportion of government correspondence will only be available via email. Reminders concerning things like doctor and hospital appointments, vehicle inspections and other government business will be sent electronically only. That means, that beginning on November 1, every resident over 15-years-old will have to have a digital mailbox to communicate with various public authorities. Many people, especially older residents, are not looking forward to the switch from snail mail to email.
“I’m too old,” Erling Dahl, a farmer from Jutland told DR Nyheder. “It is constantly being drummed into our heads that we have to make things easier for government while the rest of us are forced to go along with whatever they come up with.”
