Using @eesti.ee address
Every person with an Estonian personal identification code has an e-mail address registered in the State Portal – first firstname.lastname@example.org.
This e-mail address is intended as a communication channel between the state and the person, where the state can leave messages and information concerning the person. In addition, you can use the address for other communication. Only state authorities can send messages to the e-mail address "personal identification email@example.com", e.g. firstname.lastname@example.org. In case of the name change, the e-mail address email@example.com will be changed automatically and it is not possible to use the old address.
Companies have e-mail addresses in the form of "registry firstname.lastname@example.org", where the state can leave messages. The company’s representative can forward the @eesti.ee address on to several addresses, for example, several employees, so that significant information would reach everyone.
The State Portal does not have a mailbox for your incoming mail; the @eesti.ee address only forwards the mail. In addition, the content of e-mails sent from your @eesti.ee address is not saved on the State Portal; you can only view the list of sent messages.
In order to receive the letters and messages from the state, forward your @eesti.ee e-mail address on to your personal e-mail address. You can forward letters to several e-mail addresses as well. This way, an entrepreneur can forward letters to several employees, so that information will not go amiss during someone’s holiday. You can see an overview of messages in the personal calendar after logging in to the State Portal and clicking on My Notifications.
When you log in to the eesti.ee website on the landing page, and you have not used your @eesti.ee address before, you can forward your official @eesti.ee address right away.
If you have used the e-mail address before, the option is available in the menu item My Data, where you can change your personal e-mail address or add other e-mail addresses after clicking on menu item E-mail.
Ticking the junk mail processing box, you can make a suitable selection. We recommend the last option, where junk mail is marked and forwarded. This way, the right information reaches your mailbox without any problems. If it should happen that an important letter is included in junk mail, you can still find it in the junk mail folder of your personal mailbox.
The @eesti.ee e-mail address is primarily intended for you to receive the messages and personal information sent by state authorities, but you can also use the e-mail address first email@example.com as a personal contact.
You can send letters from the State Portal, if you wish to show an e-mail address that ends with @eesti.ee. If you receive an answer to the letter that you sent from the State Portal environment, the State Portal will automatically forward the answer to your personal e-mail address.
If you delete all the e-mail addresses you have entered as the recipient of e-mails from @eesti.ee, the letters and subscribed notifications sent to your @eesti.ee address will not reach your personal mailbox any longer. You can get an overview of the previous and future notifications under menu item My Calendar of eesti.ee.
For example, board members of companies need to delete e-mail addresses upon the leaving of an employee, who received the company’s forwarded @eesti.ee e-mails and notifications. Forwarding can be deleted in Settings/Official e-mail. For specific conditions and information, please read the Terms of service.
