Useful template message for friends and family


I've been writing an email that I'll send to friends and family before we head off to South America, and suspect others will be doing the same.

Feel free to copy/edit it for your own use:


---------------------------


SUBJECT:


Getting in touch while we are away....


MESSAGE:


We will have very limited communications while sailing offshore. 


If you need to get in touch, then use our satellite number: YOUR-NUMBER-HERE


1) EMAIL: We have no internet access apart from being able to read SMALL emails sent to: YOUR-EMAIL-HERE

- if your email is not SMALL we won't get it, so:

- only send text in your email

- make sure there are no attachments (especially if forwarding a file)

- make sure there are no images embedded (e.g. your avatar or company logo)


2) CALL: You can call us on our satellite phone using the number above

- this could be expensive, so probably best for emergencies

- will cost about £5 per minute from a UK mobile phone


3) SMS: You can also send SMS messages to our satellite phone using the number above

- will cost about 40p each from a UK mobile phone


The most RELIABLE and FREE way to get a SMS message to us is to use this form on the Iridium web site: 

https://messaging.iridium.com/

- enter our number without the plus, i.e.: YOUR-NUMBER-HERE

- enter your email address (a mobile number we can SMS you back on also works here)

- enter your message and send

If you don't get a reply then don't worry, we may not check our messages every day, or the satellite network might incur a delay.
