Freecycle email going to spam folder

Here's what to do if you find emails from Freecycle in your spam, bulk or junk folder

First, mark the Freecycle email(s) as Not Spam. This should move them to your Inbox. Do not empty your spam folder until you move the Freecycle email. 

Next, help prevent Freecycle emails from being marked as spam in the future by taking these steps:
  • add to your contact list or address book
  • If your email program has a Blocked Senders list, make sure is not on that list
  • If your email program allows you to create a whitelist or filter to prevent email from certain addresses from going to spam, create one. Instructions for doing this in two popular email programs are below. If you use a different email program, try the program's FAQ or information page or an internet search to find instructions.

You can also set your email preferences to receive fewer or no post emails. You can also do most of your communication with moderators and other members right on in My Messages/
