  department of state a certificate of amendment or change  providing  for
  the  designation  by  the corporation of a new address and that upon its
  failure to file such certificate, its authority to do business  in  this

  under section four hundred eight of this chapter,  the  address  of  the
  principal  executive  office  stated  in  the  last  filed  statement of
  addresses and directors shall constitute the new address for process  of
  the corporation, and the corporation shall not be deemed suspended.
    (c)  The  filing  by  the  department  of  state  of  a certificate of

  in this state shall be restored and continue as  if  no  suspension  had
  occurred.
    (d) The resignation for receipt of process shall become effective upon

  of  state  as its agent pursuant to this section. Such process may issue
  in any court in this state having jurisdiction of the subject matter.

  by personally delivering to and leaving with him or his deputy, or  with
  any person authorized by the secretary of state to receive such service,
  at  the  office of the department of state in the city of Albany, a copy
  of such process together with the statutory fee, which fee  shall  be  a
  taxable disbursement. Such service shall be sufficient if notice thereof
  and a copy of the process are:
    (i)  delivered  personally  within  or  without  this  state  to  such
  corporation by a person and in manner authorized to serve process by law
  of the jurisdiction in which service is made, or
    (ii) sent by or on behalf of the  plaintiff  to  such  corporation  by
  registered  or  certified mail with return receipt requested to the last
  address of such corporation known to the plaintiff.
    (3) (i) Where service of a copy of process was  effected  by  personal
  service,  proof of service shall be by affidavit of compliance with this
  section filed, together with the process, within thirty days after  such
  service,  with  the  clerk  of  the court in which the action or special
  proceeding is pending. Service of process shall complete ten days  after
  such papers are filed with the clerk of the court.
    (ii)  Where  service of   a copy of process was effected by mailing in
  accordance with this section, proof of service shall be by affidavit  of
  compliance  with  this  section filed, together with the process, within

  corporation,  or  other  official  proof  of delivery or of the original
  envelope mailed. If a copy of the process is mailed in  accordance  with
  this  section,  there  shall  be  filed with the affidavit of compliance
  either the return receipt signed by such corporation or  other  official
  proof  of  delivery,  if  acceptance  was  refused  by  it, the original
  envelope with a notation by the postal authorities that  acceptance  was
  refused.  If  acceptance  was  refused, a copy of the notice and process
  together with notice of the mailing by registered or certified mail  and
  refusal to accept shall be promptly sent to such corporation at the same
  address by ordinary mail and the affidavit of compliance shall so state.
  Service  of  process  shall  be  complete ten days after such papers are
  filed with the clerk of the court. The refusal to accept delivery of the
  registered or certified mail or to sign the  return  receipt  shall  not
  affect  the  validity  of  the  service and such corporation refusing to
  accept such registered or certified mail shall be charged with knowledge
  of the contents thereof.
    (4) Service made as provided in this section without the  state  shall
  have the same force as personal service made within this state.
    (5) Nothing in this section shall affect the right to serve process in
  any other manner permitted by law.
