Welcome to Dotpost

Introducing Dotpost

Dotpost® is a secure delivery system allowing you to receive communications such as appointments, bills, statements, payslips or indeed any form of communication from organisations you trust, direct to your own digital Dotpost inbox.

Unlike email, you know that the communication has come direct from an organisation you already have a relationship with and you do not need to worry about the communication being fraudulent.

You are in control. You have to allow an organisation to send to you via Dotpost. Dotpost will not send you unsolicited communications.

 ...and it's free to use.

Sounds good, how do I start? 

To use Dotpost, you need to be invited by a trusted organisation to join Dotpost. They will supply you with a 16 character Activation Code‍. You will need this to register.

Warning

The activation code is time sensitive. It will expire if not used within 30 days from creation.

Once registered, your trusted organisations (known as Senders) can deliver communications to your account when required. You can then access these in your Dotpost inbox.

Register

  • Go to dotpost.com/register
  • Enter the activation code from your invitation and your postcode from the address on the invitation. i.e. You use the postcode from the address the invitation was sent to.
  • If there is no postcode click No Postcode and enter the full address as it appears on your invitation letter (even if it has mistakes).
  • Complete the registration form with your details

Passwords must be at least 8 characters

When choosing a password, you should:

  • not use a password you use on any other website - always use a unique password
  • not use a family/pet name, memorable place, birthday etc - people may be able to find these details on social media
  • make it at least 8 characters long - we recommend 12 characters or longer
  • use a mix of letters, numbers and punctuation - ideally, at least one of each
  • consider using a phrase rather than a word - it may be easier to remember
  • use a password manager to generate and store a complex password for you
  • Complete the security questions. 
    • These are used in case you forget your password. Your answers are stored in a way that they cannot be read by anyone.
