Q: I registered for email alerts but I haven’t received any emails. Did I miss something?
A: After you subscribe for email alerts on the website, a verification email is automatically sent to your inbox. This email contains a link, which you must click on so to complete the verification process. This helps us to ensure that email addresses were entered correctly. If you would like to receive another verification email, please open the email subscription form and enter your information again.
Q: I can’t read the verification code on the subscription form. Can I get a different code?
A: Beside the verification code, you’ll find a link that says "Get a new code." You may click on this link repeatedly until you are given a legible code.
