MOD Launches INtouch following the end of the e-bluey Service

Defence Minister Mark Lancaster has announced a new mailing system for friends and family to send letters to personnel around the world.
The new contract with Neopost will mean Britain’s armed forces will continue to receive hard copy, secure mail, including photos, from their loved ones, for free and with no break in service as the new imail INtouch system takes over from the e-bluey on 1 April 2017.
INtouch messages are alternatives to Forces Free Air Letters (FFALs), known as ‘blueys’, and are also free to send. They system will allow users to send up to 8 pages, including high definition photographs and official documents. The old e-bluey system that is being replaced only allowed single pages to be sent and did not support high definition photographs.
