Incorrect email addresses

Postby zaneclark » Tue Jul 14, 2020 5:22 pm

I'm throwing this out again, as it is critical right now to know who is receiving the messages being sent from leaders. There are undoubtedly many who have incorrect addresses and so are not getting important notices right now about opening up meetings. Does anyone have ANY idea on how to accomplish this?

There are a lot of reasons someone might not get emails sent via Send a Message – their email address could be wrong, the email might be routed to spam or even deleted before it gets to spam (byu.net), they might get so many emails that it's hard to keep up, or they might only check their email once a month, if at all. I wouldn't rely on Send a Message as the only way to get the word out about things. If it's important, I would also send it via a Facebook group, if you have one, via Gospel Living, and via bishops > quorums and classes > members.

You pass it along to the clerk or membership clerk.

A member usually also is able to change their email address. And in the Send a Message function of Leader and Clerk Resources, leaders are able to see which members have even provided emails.

As for the original question about getting church meeting information to members, the best way, of course, is for ministering brothers and sisters to convey the information.
