Secure e-mail will notify you of successful registration. An automated message is sent to the e-mail address you have provided. The message will contain a link for sending the message. Open your inbox.

Open the registration message from the secure e-mail service (address no-reply@stat.fi) that you received. The message heading says “Rekisteröinti / Registrering / Registration”. Click the link in the message. It takes you to a website where you can write your email.

Sending a message

Enter the address of Statistics Finland’s recipient in the field To. Statistics Finland’s email addresses are of the form firstname.lastname@stat.fi. If you send a message to several recipients, add a comma (,) between the addresses.

NOTE! You can improve the security of the message you are sending by using telephone number verification. With telephone number verification, you can ensure that the message will not be sent to the wrong person, for example, because of a typo. When using telephone number verification, the recipient will receive a PIN code to their mobile phone that they will need to use for opening the secure e-mail message. To use telephone number verification, add the telephone number followed by .sec at the end of the recipient’s e-mail address (e.g., john.doe@stat.fi.050123456.sec).

Type the message and add any attachment files. The greatest allowed size of an attachment is 400MB. If necessary, you can also compress the file before attaching it. You can search for a file on your computer with the function opening from the Browse button. The attachment is saved with the message using the button Attach.

Send the message by pressing Send. Once you have sent the message, you will receive a confirmation of successful sending.

When you have sent the message, you can save it with its attachments with the Save function.

Leave the secure email by clicking the button Exit or write a new message by pressing the button New message.
