I'm Not Getting Any Emails

Here is a rundown of why you might not be getting any emails.

- Once you've paid your membership fee, we will send you invites to join the PSP groups you requested within 24-36 hours.  If you indicated in your application that you want to be on both our Discussion/Advice and Classifieds lists, you should receive emails either adding or inviting you to join the lists.Follow the instructions in the email and you'll start receiving messages within 24 hours.

 

6 reasons why you might not be getting any emails

 

1. YOU HAVEN'T PAID YET
If you haven't followed the instructions to pay your membership fee, your membership hasn't yet been activated.  Follow the instructions and once you've paid, we'll add you within 24 hours.

 

2. YOU"VE NOT RESPONDED TO AN INVITATION EMAILS
If you've paid your membership fee but haven't received the "invitation" emails, they may have been caught in your spam filter.  Check your spam folder and respond to be added.

 

3. YOUR MEMBERSHIP EXPIRED
There's a chance that we sent renewal notices to an email address connected to your membership account that is not related to your Yahoo membership emails.  If that's the case, your membership expired and you are no longer on our Yahoo! Groups.  Please log in to the membership site here renew your membership, and we'll get you back on the lists. It may take a few days.

 

4. BOUNCING
Your email box may be full or nearly full and therefore the emails can't get through.

 

5. SPAM CONTROL
Emails may end up in your SPAM folder. You might want to modify your SPAM  filter to accept any email with ParkSlopeParents or  ParkSlopeParents_Classifieds in the sender name. Also, the online forum is  currently moderated; the message you were looking for may not have been  approved because it did not adhere to the forum's policies (in which case  you’ll receive a reject message explaining why). Occasionally there are also  the usual delivery problems associated with email.

 

6. YOU'RE A GMAIL USER & IT'S IN A DIFFERENT TAB
Are you a Gmail user?  Members have been telling us that their Park Slope Parents emails have been ending up in the Promotions or Forum tab.  Read MORE about this issue HERE.

 

If you answered the invitations and still aren't geting email, or if you're confused by the instructions, write to us at and we'll figure things out and get you on the lists.

 

As a background, we have over 100,000 emails on our PSP Yahoo! Advice and Classifieds Group so we decided to stay on that platform which is separate from our membership fee.This added step is part of the reason for the time delay.
