2. Why can’t I use my own email?

  • Due to GDPR the use of Free (Gmail/Hotmail Etc) Email services is to be discouraged. This is because they often lack security features, which are provided to us through Office 365. It also means if there was a freedom of information request, you would have to provide access to your personal emails. ​
  • We are still allowed to forward them onto other email services such as 365 and GoogleWorkspace for County/Group emails already set up on them.​
