When you sign up to receive bid notifications via email, you will receive notice of all new bids posted by FRCOG. If you change your mind, there’s an unsubscribe link at the bottom of every email we send.
Bids are posted as they become available. If you signed up for the email list and haven’t received any notifications, go to the Bids page and make sure new bids have been posted since you signed up. If there are no new bids, wait a few days and check again.

Tips to Help Ensure Delivery
Some email programs (Outlook, Apple Mail, etc.) may classify bulk emailings as spam. Some web-based email (like Gmail) may sort bulk messages into a “Promotions” folder or classify them as spam. Here are some steps you can take to help make sure our messages reach you:
- If you find a message in your Spam folder, drag it into your Inbox. Some programs will interpret this as a sign that these are high priority messages that you want to see without hunting for them.
- Add [email protected] to your address book/contacts. Gmail and other popular email services often check assume that your contacts are trusted and valued senders, so they don’t get routed to Spam/Promotions/etc. Make sure you add [email protected] to the address book for all steps in your email delivery chain. For instance, if you have a Gmail account but read/send messages through Outlook or Apple Mail, you may have to add the address to both Gmail’s address book AND Outlook, because either of those steps can potentially send your message somewhere other than your inbox.
- Send a message to [email protected] from the account you used to sign up for automatic notifications. Just like adding to your address book (step two) many popular programs and services automatically send messages to your inbox when they come from someone you’ve emailed, because it’s clear you want to be in touch with them. Note that this email will bounce, but that’s okay, because you’re not trying to reach us, just to show your email that you’re interested in this address.
- If you use an IT service, city/town based email server, or have other IT professionals managing your email, they may have added another layer of spam filters. Make sure they know that [email protected] should be added to your trusted senders list and always routed to your inbox.
- If none of these work, Google the name of the email service and/or program you use, along with a phrase like “prevent messages from being sent to spam” to get tips for your specific email configuration. There are too many services and email programs to provide detailed instructions for every combination, so you may have to do some research on your own.
