(a) Every foreign corporation acting in a fiduciary capacity in this state pursuant to the terms of this part shall be deemed to have appointed the Secretary of State to be its true and lawful attorney upon whom may be served all legal process in any action or proceeding against it relating to or growing out of any trust, estate, or matter in respect of which the foreign corporation has acted in this state in any fiduciary capacity. Service of process shall be made by delivering two copies for each defendant of the summons or other process, with two copies of the petition or complaint, when service of such copies is required by law, accompanied by a fee of $10.00, to the Secretary of State or to any person in his office authorized by him to receive the service. The Secretary of State shall immediately forward the process, together with the copy of the petition or complaint, if any, to the foreign corporation, by registered or certified mail or statutory overnight delivery, addressed to it at the address on file with the Secretary of State or, if it is not on file, then at its last known address. The Secretary of State shall not accept any petition or other pleading for service under this Code section unless two copies thereof or one copy with 50¢ per page for photostating the other copy is filed in his office.

(b) The Secretary of State shall keep a permanent record in his office showing, for all process served, the style of the action or proceeding, the court in which it was brought, the name and title of the officer serving the process, the day and hour of service, the day of mailing by registered or certified mail or statutory overnight delivery to the foreign corporation, and the address to which mailed.
