Can I get every post sent by email?
There isn't yet an option to get every post sent by email but you can setup email alerts to get notified about specific posts. You can also change how frequently you receive the digest emails so that you are notified more often about new posts.
How do I change my email address?
On your Profile page, you can add or remove email addresses and select the primary email address that you want all emails from the site to be sent to.
When you add a new email address, you will have to verify that you own the new email address by clicking a link in a verification email that will be sent to that address.
If you signed up with an invalid email address, please contact us so that we can fix the email address for you.
How do I change the frequency of the digest emails?
You can change how often you receive the digest emails on the Email Alerts & Digest Emails section of your Profile page.
How do I disable digest emails?
On the Email Alerts & Digest Emails section of your Profile page, you can turn digest emails on and off.
How do I reply to an email from another member?
All member to member communication is over email so you just need to reply to the email like any other email. There is no inbox interface on the trash nothing site.
How do I stop all the freecycle emails?
If you're receiving emails from Yahoo Groups (and 99% of people who ask this question are), you should switch to trash nothing! to use your existing freecycle groups so that you won't be flooded with emails. Just join your local freecycle groups through trash nothing! and unsubscribe from your groups on Yahoo Groups.
Alternatively, if you've decided you want to give up on the whole reuse and free stuff idea, you can just unsubscribe from your groups on Yahoo Groups
For the 1% who aren't receiving emails from Yahoo Groups, you can change your email preferences on the Email Alerts & Daily Digest tab of your Profile page.
How do I turn off email alerts?
On the Email Alerts & Digest emails section of your Profile page, you can view all the active email alerts you have setup. Clicking the icon to the far right of an email alert will remove that email alert.
I stopped receiving the digest emails, what happened?
Check that the option to receive digest emails is enabled on your Profile page.
If digests are enabled, then it's likely that your email provider's spam filter is catching the emails. To bypass the spam filter, add firstname.lastname@example.org to your Contacts list.
Why does it take so long for the digest emails to arrive?
The default digest email frequency is once per day because many people don't like getting too many emails. With once per day digests, the posts in the digest can be up to a day old but you can change the frequency of the digest emails at any time on the Email Alerts & Digest Emails section of your Profile page.
