The sender writes and sends his PEC message to the recipient (another PEC *); the server receives the message and gives the transmission receipt to the sender, when the e-mail reaches the recipient. The transmission certificates for sending communications and receiving communications are valid by law, as they bear witness to two things: the transmission / receipt of the email and the relative time references.
