Email Issues

  • How do I change my email address or unsubscribe to emails?

       

  • When I reply to e-mail I receive from the NRA-ILA alerts list, I never get a response. Why?

       

  • How do I sign up to receive the grassroots weekly alert by email?

    Click here to sign up to receive the grassroots weekly alert via email. By signing up to receive email alerts, you will automatically receive our weekly grassroots alert by email every Friday. If you want to receive a daily email notifying you of any new postings to our site check the option at the bottom for "I want to receive daily site updates".

  • How can I send the same e-mail message to all my elected officials in one step?

       

  • I am subscribed to NRA-ILA email alerts but have not been receiving them.

    Occasionally our email alerts get caught in the spam filters of some Internet Service Providers (ISPs) due to increased efforts to eliminate unsolicited commercial e-mail (UCE), otherwise known as spam. If you have recently installed spam filtering or subscribed through your ISP to filtering you may want to see if that is causing the problem. Also, some ISPs subscribe to blacklist sites which supply a list of email addresses that have been blacklisted because they are assumed to be spam.

    PLEASE MAKE SURE ANY SPAM FILTERING SOFTWARE, WHETHER FROM YOUR ISP OR YOUR OWN PERSONAL SOFTWARE IS SET TO ALLOW EMAIL FROM THE EMAIL ADDRESS admin@nramedia.org. For assistance in setting this up, please contact your ISP if it is ISP filtering or your documentation for your personal filtering software.

    If you are using AOL, Yahoo, MSN, or Hotmail you may want to check your Junk Mail or Bulk Items folder. Sometimes these services will route our email alerts to these folders. If you are using Earthlink's spamBlocker you will need to add the above domains to your allowed senders list.

    To help us diagnose this problem, please contact your ISP and ask them the following:

    • Have they made any recent changes to their service regarding spam filtering? Check if email from the domains listed above is getting caught in their spam filters.

    • If possible, please exclude our email address from their spam filter so you can receive our alerts. Inform them that our email alerts are opt-in alerts so we are not spamming people.

    • Ask them to provide information about any blacklist sites they subscribe to so we can take the appropriate steps to have our email address removed if it is on the list.

    After you receive a response from your ISP please contact NRA-ILA at 800-392-8683 or by clicking here and provide us with the information.
