Appellate rule 25(c)(4) says service is complete when I mail

This answer was rated:

Appellate rule 25(c)(4) says service is complete when I mail papers.
(d)(1)(B) says proof is a statement by the person who made service certifying (i) etc.

Under (c)(4) I'm the person who made service when I completed it by dropping it in the mail box.
I signed the copies under penalty of perjury saying I mailed them to everybody. So I think it was ok that I mailed them without paying for the post man to get a signature from opposing council.

Hello, Phil, and Thank you for requesting me,

I reviewed Appellate Rule 24 in its entirety and you are correct. Service is complete when mailed or when given to a third party carrier for delivery. Your Certification must list the people served and their respective addresses where they were served, the date on which they were served and manner of service. If you have all of that in your Certification of Service, then you are all set,
