We'll wait and see how ISPs handle IPv6 when the time comes. There's no reason to believe it won't make matters worse.

"If it's connected to the internet directly" So, an infinitesimal fraction of them, since almost all would be behind a NAT router.
IPv6 to the rescue! No NAT and even popular routers out there pass IPv6 without an SPI. (TP-Link Archer C7 would be one).

So far, the only way that happens is if they mail me paper copies. It is remarkable that we have yet to solve this apparently simple problem with a more technologically sophisticated alternative, but until we do, I will continue to opt out of getting statements [only] electronically.
If only someone invented a device that can be used to make a hardcopy of a document that is available online, your problem would have been solved.
Couldn't the same level of 'automatic' be achieved with image recognition cameras at the doors, or other sensors to achieve the same result?
Why would you want to do it in a simple way?
Someone should start a non profit... to manufacture and distribute stickers:
This item is not a f*cking bomb
and a for-profit to make the stickers saying:
How many QA engineers does it take to screw in a lightbulb? 3: 1 to screw it in and 2 to say "I told you so" when it doesn't work.
