Our email address is changing from 1 November 2018 to
Launched in 1996, the ‘Government Secure Intranet’ (GSI) has been used until now to guarantee the security of emails sent by Government agencies and Arms Length Bodies. Technology has changed a lot since 1996 and the GSi is now being phased out across Government.
From 1 November 2018 we are removing .gsi from our SASA addresses and moving to gov.scot:
Our new email addresses will be more secure, and the new system will protect against anyone trying to forge our domain name (the @sasa bit) and sending emails that claim to be from SASA.
What do I need to do?
|Update your SASA email contacts and replace @sasa.gsi.gov.uk with
Remember to update any tools or applications that use SASA email addresses
During the transition period (Nov 18 - Feb 19) incorrectly addressed emails will be redirected and the sender will receive a notice reminding them of the correct address format. After 28 February 2019, messages sent to @sasa.gsi.gov.uk will not be received.
If you have any questions about this change or require more information please contact us on email@example.com
This change only affects email addresses ending in @sasa.gsi.gov.uk
