This is a clarification and narrowing of the below request. Specifically, I'm seeking communications about; Digital and paper presentation materials from, to, or about; emails to, from, or about; and legal opinions regarding Outbox, a company that sought to create digitized replicas of USPS materials.

The group is widely reported to have met with Postmaster General Patrick Donahoe, including here:

Please also search for notes, memos and presentations prepared for Patrick Donahoe mentioning Outbox, as well emails sent to or from Dave Partenheimer, Manager, Media Relations for USPS, mentioning the word "Outbox" between Jan. 1, 2012 and March 25, 2014. You may limit this request to documents that deal with Outbox the startup.
