This seems to have gone off topic - i dont want to get rid of the existing pidgeon hole just to add an electronic one.
So the point is as described - to stop things like paper memo's, word of the day booklets etc. Getting staff to send emails rather than paper notes. Basically internal communications done by email rather than paper.
Pete - finally a suggestion for how to achieve it! thanks for that - its something im looking into and if i do find something ill post it up.
You could combine the two: have a cabinet on the wall for pigeon holes, with a small hinged flap over each slot, flush with the sides. Paint the whole lot matt white and you've got a surface to project on from a short-throw projector - no need to mess around with sticky lables when re-labling slots, just re-arrange the display.

What are you using for each of these?
Power a projector for 8 hours each day to project onto pigeon holes? Seems a waste of money and electricity!

We only send memos out via emaail now.
We also have a VOIP system that gives all staff a voicemailbox, and the PBX sends the recorded message to the email address of the owner (as a WAV).
If Microsoft had managed to bring out their Lync server out earlier I would have looked at this instead, but they got to market too late for us.
