I am signed up for Email Notifications but did not receive a notification today.
Accurate and timely postings are the responsibility of the organizations themselves. Please contact your organizations administrators for an explaination as to why notifications were late or not sent at all.
If you are using AOL or Yahoo as your email provider we recommend that use a different email for receiving your notifications. AOL and Yahoo sometimes delay or block emails you will either not receive them or get them very late. Gmail works well and as do most other email systems.

Yes. Currently we just have this for visitor accounts. We have added a new feature that allows you to have our system send you out a test email. Please log in to your account at www.cancellations.com/visitors as you normally do. Under the link "Email addresses used for notifications" to the right of each email address you will see a link marked "Test It". Click on this link and our system will generate an email to your account which you should receive within a few minutes. If not, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will try to help you track down the problem.
