Don't click "Track this discussion". Then you won't get emails about it.

To some emails from Amazon....thanks. To some of the other emails from Amazon....filed away for future reference. And finally, to those who may be reading this....Hi.
:)

I wish they didn't send out an email each time I post a review. I review quite a bit and sometimes there are way too many emails from amazon in my inbox. I'd prefer they just sent out an email about reviews not posting. That is helpful. But I check to see which reviews post myself so getting an email about it is just a waste of my time.

Yeah. It would be nice to receive an email when a review is rejected providing the specific reason for such.

Reasons would be great. The first review I ever tried to post never appeared, and no reason was given (it discussed a rather controversial book, which now has 59 5-star reviews, 6 1-star, and not much in between). Not knowing much about the system at that time I just felt discouraged, and it too about a year before I tried again.

You can opt out, if you scroll down the email it tells you how

You can set up a filter to either delete them or file them in a specific folder. On Yahoo:

Options ->
Mail Options ->
Filters ->
+Add:

Then set:

- Sender contains "customer-reviews-messages@amazon.com"
- Subject contains "just went live on Amazon.com"
- Then deliver the email to the following folder "Trash"

Or you can create an "Amazon Acknowledgements" folder and deliver to it.

Very clever Federname. Thank you! You've just given
me the gift of time. :)

Thank you Becky - I'll check it out on the next email.

So far Peter...I've been able to figure out why the review was rejected. Apparently you can no
longer say you are an author in the review. If you say you are an author AND you put a link
in to your fantastic book it is going to be rejected for sure. I know better but I did it
recently.

The emails that annoy me are not the ones telling me my review is (finally) posted, but rather the ones listing book recommendations. In most cases, I have already purchased the recommended book, often right on Amazon, and reviewed it here as well.

In reply to an earlier post on Jun 29, 2012 5:02:53 AM PDT
That makes sense since it is probably the same as saying you ARE the author as far as the filter goes. Better not to take the chance on Amazon's part most likely.

well, and I do hate to diverge from you, REbecca, I find it very convenient for filing my reviews before amazon deltes them again

i hate getting LABELLED by the vine system, and getting a TON of similar product offers for some odd thing I had to get because nothing else was left.

and why am I getting pages of JEWELRY when I have never ordered any and it is all GoNE anyway

In reply to an earlier post on Jun 29, 2012 3:29:57 PM PDT
Well I guess if you use public computers that is a good option for keeping them. But do you ever ask yourself how you could write the review so amazon doesn't delete it?

How about skipping a month and seeing what's on next month's list?

Maybe it's not Amazon. Maybe it's a message from you-know-who...... If I were you, I'd pick some jewelry just to be sure. ;-)
