The Aston Abbotts Postbox started at the beginning of 2015. It allows villagers and friends to distribute notices to all of its subscribers via email.During its first year the Postbox distributed nearly 200 notices via email to subscribers.Subscribers have used the Postbox to :•Tell villagers about special events•Ask for recommendations for local tradesmen•Appeal for help with village activities•Advertise services they offer•Notify villagers about Parish Council or other meetings•Advertise Church Services, etc.•… and much morePosts are moderated, approved and checked for spam. Currently around 5-10 emails a week are distributed.To join the postbox mail list please see the link on the right.You can unsubscribe at any time by clicking the link at the bottom of each posting.Please send submissions to the correct address : email@example.com. Emails sent to personal email addresses may get delayed or missed.When responding to messages please make sure that you respond to the email address (or phone number) given in the message. Responding directly to the Postbox either ends up in the spam folder or causes us extra work and delays as we have to manually forward them on to the recipient.We don't like to send out Word documents for fear of distributing viruses. Generally the only attachments we will forward are pictures and PDF files. We realise that not everybody can convert their Word files so we will endeavour to convert them as appropriate for you, but please bear in mind this might cause a delay as it is all a manual process.Finally - check your junk/spam folder! At least one subscriber was missing many of our emails as his email program was incorrectly seeing some postbox messages as junk mail. You may need to add our server address - firstname.lastname@example.org - as 'good' in your email settings.We hope you find this service useful.
The Postbox is an information service and it is not a discussion group. Comments and replies are not forwarded to the group.If you want to take part in Aston Abbotts discussion there is an active Aston Abbotts Community Facebook group.
