How to unblock email to …@yahoo.com

When you create an account at CheckOutMyCards.com our server sends you an email. Sometimes email from our server gets blocked by your email provider. The easiest way to unblock our email is to add staff@checkoutmycards.com to your contact list. To do that with Yahoo! Mail simply click on the Contacts tab or go to http://address.mail.yahoo.com.
Contacts Tab

Then click the Add Contact button.
Add Contact

Specify staff@checkoutmycards.com as the email address and click Save.
Save Contact

Now email from our server will arrive in your inbox and you will be able to activate your account.

Background
As part of the account creation process at CheckOutMyCards.com we verify that the user has specified a valid email address that can successfully receive email from our servers. This is very important for sellers on our site because they need to be notified if a potential buyer sends them an offer on their cards.

Unfortunately many people have trouble receiving email from our servers. In the past 30 days most email domains have had a 65-75% success rate in receiving our emails and activating their accounts. However there are two outliers, @yahoo.com and @gmail.com. As we have seen with just about everything from Google, their services appear to be superior. 95.74% of the users from @gmail.com successfully activate their accounts. Even though Yahoo! Mail is the post popular email provider it appears to be on the other end of the spectrum. Only 47% of the @yahoo.com email addresses are able to receive our emails.

Email Domain  Activation Rate
@yahoo.com 47.42%
@hotmail.com 70.67%
@gmail.com 95.74%
@aol.com 69.23%
@comcast.net 76.92%

  1. I was recommended to the website checkoutmycards.com by nipsack. I purchased some cards from nipsack on eBay. Like Pat I too collect Ryan Zimmerman. I look forward to being a buyer. I’ve collected baseball cards on and off for 25 years. Earlier in collecting I was a Rubin Sierra and George Brett collector. Great website and keep it going!

    Sincerely,
    Steven
