If legal notice are sent by email then can it be considered as valid without any acknowledgement from the person to whom it is sent?
Dear friend,
You have raised query about the validity of the legal notice through e-mail nevertheless, you have not given complete information as to who has sent legal notice to whom? Why the notice was not sent through courier or by post? What was the necessity to send the legal notice by e-mail? As far as lawyers in India are concerned, they do not agree on sending notice through e-mail. In addition to the sending hard copy by the post, it can be secondary or additional mode of communication.
While e-mail communication is valid in India, however, if the the recipient of the e-mail denies having received the e-mail, then it is incumbent on the sender to prove that the e-mail communication had taken place. Generating this kind of evidence is cumbersome and time taking process.
Thanks,

Thanks Sir, My Friend's Ex-employer sent the legal notice to my friend about soliciting their customer although he did not signed any such agreement with them and they are asking him to pay more than 2 lakh. Can such sort of legal notices be ignored. What are the consequences if he will ignore their legal notice that may be sent by email.
Dear friend,
Your first query was limited to validity of the legal notice sent through e-mail and I had replied for it. However, now in your second post, you have given brief information about the cause of the legal notice. Nevertheless, unless we know the background of the case and the contents of the notice itself, it is not possible to provide any advice.
In view of this, your friend may approach some lawyer and seek proper legal advice.
Thanks,
Dinesh Divekar
