Races


Why are messages not showing up in my "Sent" folder?

To keep a copy of mail that you have sent, simply click on the box next to ADD TO SENTLOG, which is found directly across from the CC line. Upon sending your message a copy will be saved to the SENTLOG folder of your account.

How do I print my emails?

You should be able to print out your emails by clicking on the printer icons found in the navigation bar of your browser. Another option is to click on the FILE menu, then select PRINT.

Sending Email to Multiple Addresses

When sending emails, you are limited to a maximum of 165 characters in the To, CC and BCC lines. For instance, if you send email to joe@email.com, whose email address is 13 characters which leaves you with 152 to spare. When sending emails to a group that has been set up in your contacts list, the maximum number of characters for their addresses is 1000 characters. This limit is set to prevent spammers from abusing the service. In general, you should limit your To, CC, and BCC lines to around 12 email addresses each.

How do I use the Graphic Editor?

Follow these steps:
  • Log into your email as you normally would
  • In the left column, click on the COMPOSE link

    4. Font
    5. Font size
    6. Justification (right, left or center)
    7. Text color

Your Care2 e-mail address is a bonus feature that you can simply ignore if you don't want it. Deleting your account will remove EVERYTHING from our system, including future-dated e-cards, your profile, reminders, and your Race for the Rain Forest / Race for the Big Cats standings, as well as any other features associated with your account.

  • If you still want to delete your account, please visit our account deletion page.

  • If you do not remember your login information or have an upgraded account preventing deletion, please contact our support team through our help form . For security reasons you must send us a request FROM the e-mail address you registered with us when you signed-up, or from your Care2 e-mail account. We ask that you provide an explanation why you wish to delete your account.

Why am I (or friends) not getting credit for participating in races?

A donation will be made each time you click the button, up to once per day. However, neither you nor the friends you invite will "get credit" toward the Race if you or they are not logged-in. For more info, please see the Race Help Pages.

I purchased a Care2 t-shirt or an item from a Care2 advertiser to help save more acres. Why did my personal race stats not increase?

With your purchase, Care2 or a partner merchant donates a percentage of the revenues to help save rain forest or big cat habitat. Due to the difficulty of tracking individual purchases across multiple sites, we are only able to count your acres saved toward total race stats, not your personal stats.

That flashing ad banner is annoying. Can you please remove it?

Any flashing banners that appear in our site are immediately removed. If you ever catch another one again, please hit your browser's "refresh" button to see another ad. If you want to "turn off" a flashing ad while composing email, all you need to do is hit your browser's "stop" button.

How do I unsubscribe from a Care2 newsletter or race reminder?

The best way to ensure successful unsubscription is to click one of the UNSUBSCRIBE links within the newsletter you received.

Or, unsubscribe here.

Visit our Race Help Center to unsubscribe from Race Reminders.
