Hi

You cannot forward SparkMail to an email account--sorry about that. But, there is a preference you can check on the SparkMail page to "Email me when I have new SparkMail". That way you at least receive a notification for each SparkMail along with a link that takes you directly to it.

Hope you're enjoying your SparkPeople experience so far!

Aahhh, I get it. So new team members have to manually check their SparkMail to get team messages.

One more question (thanks so, so much for your patience with me.) Is there a way a team member can set their SparkMail to be forwarded to their personal email?

Hi SHELBY1LC.

Well.... I checked your account and you have received Welcome mails from the teams you joined. The thing to note is that those come through SparkMail, not to your regular email (which I assume is where you were looking). To access your SparkMail, go to to the "My Trackers" tab above and select "SparkMail" from that menu. Then you will see those messages.

I hope that helps!

Thanks for your quick reply! Your descriptions of what happens are very clear.

Would you be able to guess why I haven't received any welcome emails from the teams I've joined?

Hello,

As the team leader, you will have the option of creating a Welcome Message SparkMail that will automatically be sent to everyone who joins your team. We encourage all leaders to have a Welcome Message set up.

Yes, you can invite others to join your team. We have a built in team leader function for that.

Once you create a team, you will automatically receive an invitation to join our team for Team Leaders. Be sure to join that and you will find extra tips and instructions that are very helpful to new leaders. I'm happy to answer other questions you may have.

Hi there, I'm interested in forming a SparkTeam. Can you help me understand the "welcome" process to anyone who joins a team? I thought there would be an email sent to any new signup. But, I haven't encountered that with the groups I signed up with. Here's two questions I can think of off the top of my head:

1)When a member joins a team, how do they get a welcome message?

2) Can I invite people to join a team? Would they get a welcome email from the team that way?
