Definition Edit

Under the mailbox rule

[w]here an offer permits acceptance by a traditional time delayed form of correspondence, such as mail or telegram, acceptance will be effective to create a binding contract as soon as it is sent by telegram or placed in the mail. Under this exception to the general rule, the acceptance is effective to create a binding contract even if it never arrives at its destination. [1]
