(d) in such manner as prescribed by the law of the state in which service is made. 2. Proof of service outside the state shall be by affidavit of the individual who made the service, or in the manner prescribed by the order pursuant to which service is made. If service is made by mail, proof may be by a receipt signed by the addressee or other evidence of delivery to the addressee. Proof of service may also be in the manner prescribed by the law of the state in which the service is made. 3. Notice is not required for the exercise of jurisdiction with respect to a person who submits to the jurisdiction of the court.
