I have no idea what you are talking about. There are a lot of reasons
that certs can take some time to renew, snail mail isn't one of them.
We renew about 2-3 certs a month ranging from standard vanilla to
wild-card and crazy merchant certs. In January we dealt with 2 certs
that had expired. Snail mail has never been a requirement.
Can you please expound?
