I’m a little slow and hung-over today.  I’ve got some questions.

  • Is The Toilet Paper SPAM?
    • We can only dream of being a delectably over salted amalgamation of organ meats packed conveniently into a can.  Short answer: No.
  • How do I sign up?
    • See that email sign up box.  You put your email in there and then click the button.  If you can’t find it, then TTP may not be for you.
  • What do I get when I sign up?
    • You get to look forward to some of the best content to hit your inbox since that generic chewable Viagra offer out of Nogales.  Tuesday through Friday, we will make your day a little easier to get through.  We assume you do okay on your own during the weekend.  And recover on Mondays, like us.
  • How do you keep TTP free?
  • Are you selling my information without telling me?
  • How do you guys choose what you write up?
    • Sometimes by magic, but normally we read the news and surf the net looking for stuff we enjoy and can comment on.

Emails

  • I signed up, but haven’t gotten anything yet. What’s going on?
    • Call the Geek Squad, or check out Email Help.
  • I’m getting the emails, but they don’t look right.
    • Your email service provider blocks images typically.  You can typically load images per email or go to your setting to allow images to load each time.  Additional details on how to execute this can also be found at…Email Help.
  • Can I change the email address my TTP subscription goes to?
    • Indeed my good man.  While you’re on the self-improvement kick, lose the stupid pucca shell necklace too. Change your email address here.
  • How do I unsubscribe?

Yo, I’m signed up, but where is my daily hilarity?  Peep the nerd speak below, home school.

Text vs. HTML

Unless you are chirping this off your parents old Commodore 64, you should get HTML emails.  Most notable email programs support HTML, including the big guns: Gmail, Yahoo! Mail, Hotmail, MSN, Microsoft Outlook, and many others. The experience is better in HTML, but if you’d prefer not to, stay tuned.  We are working to add text delivery. 

G-Mail

If you’re receiving The Toilet Paper in your spam email folder. Do this:

  • Login to your Gmail account
  • Click the "Spam" link on the left
  • Click on the email sent by "The Toilet Paper"
  • Click the "Not Spam" button above the message

To unblock images in all emails from The Toilet Paper, open the message and click the green box above your TTP message that says “Always Display Images from xxx”.

Yahoo

You’re using Yahoo:

  • Login to your email account
  • Click "Options" at the top right. Click “Mail Options”.
  • Click "Filters"
  • Click the "Create or Edit Filters" button
  • Name this filter "The Toilet Paper".  Then where it says "From header: contains," type "theman@thetoiletpaper.com" (no quotes)
  • Where it says "Then…Move the message to," select "Inbox"
  • Click "Add Filter"

To unblock images, click "options" and go to the "Spam Protection" section. Click "continue" until you’re on the 3rd step of the process. If you’ve taken the above steps to designate The Toilet Paper as not Spam, select the "Block images in messages that SpamGuard thinks are spam" option.

AOL

You’re using AOL and having problems…please see below:

  • Login to your email account
  • Go to AOL Keywork: "Mail Controls"
  • Next to Sender Filter, click the "Edit" link

  • Choose the "Block all senders and domains listed below or Allow only the sender and domains listed below" option, then click the "Save" button
  • Click the "Save" button to close the Sender Filter window
  • Click the "Save" button to close the Mail and Spam Controls window

To unblock images, click the Mail menu, then click Mail Settings. Click the "Hide images & disable links in mail from unknown senders" box to clear it. Click the "Save" button.

Windows Live Hotmail

Junk mail issues…do this:

  • Login to your email account
  • In the upper-right corner of the Windows Live Hotmail home page, click "Options", and then click "More Options"
  • Under Junk e-mail, click Safe and Blocked Senders
  • Click "Safe Mailing Lists"
  • Add "theman@thetoiletpaper.com" (no quotes) to the list

To unblock images and other content, open the email; click "open message"; click "show content" at the top of the message.

Microsoft Outlook

You’re using Microsoft Outlook and having problems…try this:

  • From the "Tools" menu, select "Options"
  • On the "Preferences" tab, under Email, click the "Junk E-Mail" button
  • Click the "Safe Senders" tab
  • Click the "Add" button
  • Type "theman@thetoiletpaper.com" (no quotes) into the "Enter an email address or Internet domain name to be added to the list" box and click the "OK" button

If the images in our emails are being blocked, adding theman@thetoiletpaper.com to the  "safe senders" list will also solve this problem. (Note: "Safe Sender" indicates that our service will do not damage to your computer; your mental health is another matter.)
