What is Netposti?

Netposti is Posti's free electronic alternative for physical mailboxes and file archives for people in Finland over 15 years of age. The service provides consumers with safe reception of electronic letters from companies and organizations. The service is both content-neutral and independent of delivery operators.

In practice, Netposti is an alternative for letterboxes and file archives. A letter previously delivered on paper to a letterbox can now be received in electronic format in Netposti. An electronic letter in Netposti looks exactly the same as the corresponding letter on paper. A message informing you of incoming messages in Netposti can be sent to you by e-mail.

Since 2010, small companies and organizations have also been able to register as Netposti users. This materially lowers their threshold to start receiving e-invoices.

Some banks (S-Pankki, LähiTapiola Bank) and newspapers (Ilkka, Pohjalainen), among others, integrated Netposti within their online services.

How long will letters be archived in Netposti?

You can organise and archive letters that have arrived in Netposti safely free-of-charge for a period of seven years.

Besides basic archiving, Netposti provides an additional archiving service where you can extend the archiving period and also add your pesonal files.
