Whatever contract you signed will have said something along the lines of
 "delivered by registered mail will be deemed to be sufficient notice".
 However, the contract, or applicable case law, may require only that
the document be delivered to a place.  A court would not care whether
you read it or not.

A messenger would be in trouble if he handed it over to a minor or
somebody about whom he had reason to believe did not represent you.. and
maybe the sender, too.  You could sue the signer for damages if they
didn't pass the message on.  You should provably forbid everybody to
sign on your behalf.

I don't suppose anybody much cares what a marketing type who disrespects
her customers thinks.

The lawyer cited by Robert should know better.  However, if you avoiding
a lawyer or any court official, you should have and follow the advice of
a better lawyer.

Really read your contracts before signing, or refusing to sign.  Courts
only see appearances, modified by appropriate law and precedent.
