MESSAGING

How to send Messages, Group Messages, and Messages to an Address

GPost is a secure internal email platform that allows you to send messages to other GPost accounts.  There are three types of messages you can send with GPost: messages to a GPost contact, messages to a group of GPost contacts, and messages to an address with a registered GPost account.

Any messages you send or receive will be displayed as threads in your CHATS tab.

Message to a Contact

To send a message to a contact, navigate to the CONTACTS tab on the HOME screen. Alternatively, you can navigate to the CHATS tab, tap the ellipsis button icon on the bottom right of the screen and tap Message to a contact – this will open your CONTACTS tab.

Once you are on the CONTACTS tab, tap the contact you want to message.  See our Contacts article for instructions on how to add and manage your contacts.

A list of previous message threads you have with this contact will be displayed.

You can tap a thread to write a response, or you can start a new thread by tapping the NEW MESSAGE icon new message icon-1 on the bottom right of the screen.

Write your message and add attachments by tapping the add attachment button-2 button.  When you have finished writing your message, tap the SEND icon send button to send the message to your contact.

Message to a Group

Sending a message to a group is just like sending a message to a contact.  To send a message to a group, navigate to the GROUPS tab on the HOME screen.

Once you are on the GROUPS tab, tap the group you want to message.  See our Groups article for instructions on how to create and edit groups.

All messages sent between group members will appear in the group message thread.  Unlike contacts, each group has only one message thread.

Write your message and add attachments by tapping the add attachment button-2 button.  When you have finished writing your message, tap the SEND icon send button to send the message to the group. 

Message to an Address

To send an message to an address with a registered GPost account, navigate to the CONTACTS tab on the HOME screen. Tap the ellipsis button icon on the bottom right of the screen and tap Message to an address. This will open a map to allow you to search for the address that you want to send the message to.

Enter the address you want to message in the search bar.  Addresses with registered GPost accounts near the address you searched for will be shown on the map.

Tap the icon associated with the desired address to select it, then tap SEND to write your message. You will not be able to select an address that does not have a registered GPost account. 

Once you have finished writing your message, tap SEND.
