The Guild provides e-mail services and website hosting for all of its branches who wish to use them. This website is hosted on the ODG server, and the Branch provides full e-mail services using standard addresses, described below. For general information, see the Guild FAQ page .
If you know of any changed of e-mail address or any new addresses please inform the Branch Postmaster
These addresses relate to a post rather than a person, and they do not change even if the person holding the post changes. That makes them easier to remember, and also avoids disclosing personal e-mail addresses. The addresses uses a prefix in front of @sdb.odg.org.uk . There are two types of address:
|Address type||Message goes to||Restrictions||Who can post||Prefix|
|Officer||A particular officer (or officers if a post is shared)||No||Anyone||See list of officers|
|Tower||The correspondent of a particular tower||No||Anyone||See list on towers page|
There are three mailing lists for groups within the Branch. The address for each is a prefix before @sdb.odg.org.uk
All lists convert messages to plain text to reduce the risk of hidden links or malware.
|Branch list||Message goes to||Restrictions||Who can post||Prefix|
|Members||All members who have given an e-mail address||Short messages with limited size attachments||Only authorised officers||members|
|Towers||All tower correspondents||Less restricted, with moderate size attachments||Only authorused officers||towers|
|Officers||All Branch officers||No restrictions, with larger attachments||Only officers who are on the list||officers|
|Weddings||Members who have agreed to receive requests to help with ringing for weddings||Short messages with no attachments||Only tower correspondents||weddings|
|Quarters||Members who have agreed to receive requests to ring in quarter peals||Short messages with no attachments||Only tower correspondents||quarters|
|Young ringers||Registered young ringers||Short messages with limited size attachments||Only Youth Officer (currently secretary acting in lieu)|
If you are a member, and you do not receive messages from the mailing list, please contact the Branch Postmaster .

Please inform the Branch Postmaster if your e-mail address changes.
On request, the Branch will provide individual towers with e-mail lists for their members. Several towers already use this facility. The address for each is a prefix before @sdb.odg.org.uk .

|Any individual tower||Members of a the particular tower (and friends at the tower's discretion)||Can be applied or not, to meet the tower needs||Normally members of the list, but can be restricted if required by the tower||As agreed when the list is set up|
