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 six mailing lists for different 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.
