Managing Your Meetup Email

Managing Your Meetup Email
The success of the Meetup groups depend largely on your ability to receive and manage important emails. We also realize that you don't want to get TOO MANY emails either. (Although, this is difficult to do with such an active club such as CFG. I would like to see at least one event per every 100 active members per month. For us that would be several per month. That's a lot of announcements, reminders, corrections etc.)

Here is the resource page from Meetup.com
[ Meetup.com Tips on Managing Email ]


1) Prevent Your Mail From Going To The Spam Folder
Please add Meetup "info@meetup.com" and JD "jdurston@yahoo.com" to your Personal Address book.

Check your "Bulk" or "Spam" mail folder periodically to check to see if mails from Meetup are going there.


2) Set Your Meetup Mail Settings
Go your "Account" settings (button in the upper right hand corner) and set your mail settings under "Membership and Communications" to manage your email options; so, that you don't get more emails than you want.


Under the column heading: "I'd like to receive mailing list messages from…", you can select "Organizers Only", "Everyone In One Daily Email", and "Everyone, As They Are Sent". "Organizer's Only" will result in the least amount of emails from the mailing list function. This can be set for each of your Meetup groups. Chicago Dining Out goes one better by not even having the mailing list function turned on. This means that only the Organizers can email you.


3) Keep Your Email Address Up To Date
In your "Account" settings, you can change your email address when that changes.


4) RSVP "NO"
RSVP "No" for any events you are not interested in. This will prevent you from getting many of the "reminder" emails about that event.

I have advised all the assistant organizers to select "Those who haven't RSVP'd Yet" as an option when emailing; so, you will not get those emails if you RSVP "No".


5) Create Email Filters

If you're a Lotus Notes, Google, Outlook or Yahoo! User, I know you can create "rules" to make mail go to a particular folder.

So, you could create a folder called "CFG" and send any mail with "[nightlife-175]" in the Subject line or "meetup.com" in the From line go to that folder automatically. This may help some of you manage your incoming emails. If you're on a different system, see if they have similar functionality.


Yahoo! Mail

Create a Filter in Yahoo! Mail Classic


AOL
Follow these steps to make sure your Meetup email gets to you. Just substitute "Meetup" for "Buzz The Club".
