Submitting LOR Electronically

Sorry if this is a silly question, but I haven't been able to find an answer anywhere else yet.

I have a recommender submitting a letter for me electronically. Does anyone know if letters submitted electronically have to be on letterhead and/or signed by the letter writer (either via scan, or via electronic letterhead/signature)? My inclination is to think not, but I wanted to double check to see if anyone had any experience with this.

Thanks!

Since no one was able to answer this for me, I figured I might as well post a response in case anyone else is looking.

The recommendation letter upload site does not allow PDFs, only Word documents and others of that sort. Didn't get a final response on the letterhead/signature issue, but my recommender used digital letterhead and only used a typed signature. Seems fine.

Additionally FYI, pretty much as soon as your recommender hits submit, the letter shows up in your LSAC account.
