This service is run for Silchester residents by Silchester Mail Ltd on a ‘not for profit’ basis.

The basic email service is provided free of charge for Silchester residents and can either be used as a full mail box system or as a forwarding address to an existing email account.

A premium service is also available for a small annual charge  (currently £15 per year and discounted to £10 for Silchester residents) which offers a larger  capacity mailbox and the ability to view your mail across different devices.
