GHOSTS SET TO HAUNT BY EMAIL.

Byline: By SONYA McLEAN

TWO Irish businessmen have launched a website - so the dead can send emails from the grave.

The site allows living account holders to send a message to their loved ones after they kick the bucket.

Postexpression.com - with its banner "Death ends a life, not a relationship" - was launched at midnight on Friday and already 334 messages have been posted by people worldwide.

For EUR19 a year members can create and edit as many messages as they like, add and remove recipients and choose their keyholders - the person or persons with responsibility for releasing messages on the member's death. The website advises members to choose someone who is "competent, trustworthy and not forgetful".

And it adds: "You don't have much opportunity to intervene, considering you'll have passed away."

Dubliners Ian Dodson, 36, and 31-year-old Mark Wrafter are the brains behind the site and work with six others from Argentina, Jordan, Turkmenistan, Poland, Malaysia and South Africa.

Wrafter said: "I live more on the net than in the real world. I hope now that the site lives and I can get out more."

Users will be able to send final words of encouragement, confession and love.
