I am currently writing about the effect of the postal rule in modern communication.

I have come to the conclusion that an offeror has complete control over the situation due to the offeror's ability to dictate the terms of the acceptance as given in HolwellSecurities v Hughes (1974)

Does anyone have any thoughts on the very significant effect of Holwell over the agency of the postal rule?

Perhaps you should contrast Holwell with Entores Ltd v Miles Far East Corporation, which basically ignored the postal rule when it came to modern communication, though I think it was a Denning judgment.

I've considered Entores but Denning's judgement seems to rest on the instantaneous of the communication to disregard the postal rule. I've found that where contracting is genuinely conducted inter absentes the offeror has such ease in side-steping the postal rule that much of the debate seems moot and I am struggling to write a compelling conclusion!

Well that could be your conclusion! Doesn't seem like a weak one at all.

Though the question is about modern communication - not too many people write letters nowadays.
