Morten Lilleøren has informed us that the Norwegian journal Postsjakk, which changed its name to Fjernsjakk in 2007 has been completely digitized from the beginning in 1945 to 2015: 70 years, 541 issues and 11660 pages, including inter alia articles and 4456 chess games, mostly postal games. This is the official journal of the Norwegian Correspondence Chess Association (NFSF). There is also a brief history of the journal, written by Morten Lilleøren (unfortunately only in Norwegian). –
The online publishing happened to coincide with the release of issue no. 1/2016. With the release of this number, the editor of the magazine, Øystein Sande, has been the editor in chief for exactly 25 years.
