We’ve been around a while. If you signed up with us in the past, you will not get another confirmation email. You should just get your content email.

If you do not get your content message but think you had signed up in the past, please click here.

If you are not sure if you had previously subscribed or requested content…

  1. Check your spam folder.
  2. Add us to your white list and try requesting your download or subscribing again. The confirmation message will come from 364415@mcssl.com, but will show up in the sender info as “364415@mcssl.com on behalf of Velaction Continuous Improvement LLC <info@velaction.com>”. The content message will come from “364415@bizmailtoday.com on behalf of *Jeff Hajek* at Velaction <Info@Velaction.com>” or “364415@priorityoneemail.com on behalf of *Jeff Hajek* at Velaction <Info@Velaction.com>”.
  3. Please reconsider using free email services (Gmail, Hotmail, AOL, Yahoo, etc.). These services are often used as ‘throwaway’ accounts, and so block messages more aggressively than other systems. If you choose to use one of these services, please be patient. It can take some time (up to a half hour or more) to arrive.
  4. Sometimes the trouble is on our end. Our service boasts a 99%+ delivery rate, but with our large number of subscribers, many of you will fall into that last percent. If you’ve waited a bit and the message still hasn’t arrived, you can try subscribing again. You will probably not receive a new confirmation message, as that is only required once per account.
  5. If all else fails, please contact us. Our email address is customerservice@velaction.com. Unless we hear otherwise, we will assume the email address you used to sign up is the one you are using to contact us.

If you did not receive the content you were expecting, please follow the troubleshooting steps below.

  1. Please check your spam or junk mail folders. If we ended up there, please add us to your address book and/or white list. You may have to contact IT support if you are using a company account. The content message will come from “364415@bizmailtoday.com on behalf of *Jeff Hajek* at Velaction <Info@Velaction.com>” or “364415@priorityoneemail.com on behalf of *Jeff Hajek* at Velaction <Info@Velaction.com>”.

If you did not receive an email with a confirmation link…

  1. Please check your spam folder. If your confirmation message ended up here, just click the link. Your content message will come from a different email address, so there is no need to white list this address.
  2. Add us to your white list/contacts. If you cannot find the confirmation message, please add us to your white list and/or address book and then try to sign up again. You may have to contact IT support if you are using a company account. The confirmation message will come from 364415@mcssl.com, but will show up in the sender info as “364415@mcssl.com on behalf of Velaction Continuous Improvement LLC <info@velaction.com>”.
  3. Reconsider using Gmail, Yahoo, Hotmail, AOL, or other free services. They sometimes have delays or don’t let emails from services such as ours through at all. If you have trouble using one of these email providers, please try with a different email. We can do little about this problem.
  4. Try re-subscribing. While our service boasts a 99%+ delivery rate, that means some of you will have a message go undelivered. If that is the case, simply resubmitting your request can do the trick.
  5. Try a different email. If you have tried troubleshooting and still can’t get our messages, the path of least resistance may be to simply try a different email address. Different systems use different tools to manage spam. While we may be inadvertently caught up in one, we will probably not be caught up in another.
  6. You may have already downloaded. We’ve been around a while. There’s a chance you subscribed a while back and forgot about it. If you received your content message, you should be good to go, as you only need to confirm once.

IMPORTANT: You Won’t Get the Free Content Until You Confirm Your Email

If this is your first contact with us, you will soon be getting an email with a confirmation link. You must click this link to receive the downloads you requested.

Important Information

  1. This message will come from *Jeff Hajek* [Velaction]. It will be sent from 364414@mcssl.com.
  2. The link will be from www.mcssl.com. This URL is used by our storefront company, 1ShoppingCart.com (a Web.com company) to manage online stores and messaging.

About Free Email Services (Gmail, Hotmail, Yahoo, etc.)

Free email services such as Gmail, Hotmail, Yahoo, etc. are commonly used as ‘throwaway’ accounts, and as such generate a lot of junk email for the services. They have very aggressive filters which can delay or restrict your confirmation message. Please click the first troubleshooting link below to see how to manage this issue.

Troubleshooting

If you did not get the content you were expecting, please select one of the following three choices.

  1. I did not receive my confirmation email.
  2. I clicked the link in my confirmation email, but did not receive the content message.
  3. I’ve subscribed/downloaded content in the past, but did not get the content message this time.
  4. If you use Outlook 365/Exchange and did not get your confirmation message, please check in your quarantined messages.

Our subscribers using free email services may encounter some problems with our membership process. These free services are often used as spam accounts or as ‘throwaway’ accounts for signing up on websites. As a result, these services have extremely aggressive email filters. This may result in delays or complete blocking of incoming messages.

PROBLEM PREVENTION

  1. Our preference is that you subscribe with your primary email account to avoid problems.
  2. If you prefer to deal with the potential Gmail (or other services) problems, we recommend that you add us to your contact list before registering. This will ‘white list’ us for most free email services.

WHITE LIST THIS ADDRESS > 364415@priorityoneemail.com

WHITE LIST THIS ADDRESS > 364415@bizmailtoday.com

CONFIRMATION PROBLEMS (First Step)

When you submit your signup form, you should get a confirmation message. This normally works without a problem, as it is sent in text format. If, however, you do have trouble, white list the following address and try signing up.

WHITE LIST THIS ADDRESS > 364415@mcssl.com

TROUBLESHOOTING

I didn’t receive my confirmation message.

Try adding 364415@mcssl.com to your contact list and signing up again, or try using your primary email address.

I clicked my confirmation link but still have not received a welcome message.

First, check your junk mail folder.  If it is not there, the message may just be delayed for a few minutes, in which case you do not have to take action. Unfortunately, there is no way to tell if it is just delayed, or if it is blocked. Your best bet is to add 364415@priorityoneemail.com and 364415@bizmailtoday.com to your contact list and sign up again.

I can’t find my invitation code.

The invitation code comes in the welcome message you will get after confirming your email address. If you did not get that message, see the troubleshooting tip above.

SUPPORT

We are busy creating content and supporting our customers. Because of that, we have to prioritize our time. Support for members signing up using Gmail, Hotmail, or other free email service is limited.
