Maybe. But as soon as you have to interact with non-US companies or
administrations, you'll have to revert to fax, because in their legislations,
that's the only legally binding document in addition to real letters.

Yes, but that's the way the world is. Not everyone has transitioned to
authenticated e-mails. Most legal systems didn't, for some very good
security reasons. At least, I'm relieved that we don't have to fall back
to an even older technology than fax: telex (anyone remember that?)
