Why didn't the person I sent my ecard to receive it?

There are a number of reasons why your recipient may not have received your ecard. The first thing you should do is check your "Sent Cards" located under "My Account" and double check that their email address was entered correctly. If there was an error with the recipient's email address then you will need to resend the ecard with the correct address. Simply click on the resend link next to the card and follow the prompts. Please click here to go to your "Sent Cards".

If the recipient's email address does show correctly in your "Sent Cards" then we did send a notification email to that address for your card. If they did not receive the email notification it must have been routed or blocked by their email provider and/or spam filter.

It is not uncommon for spam filters to block the notification for ecards by default. The notification email will then be routed to their spam folder or, in some cases, deleted outright. If the email is deleted outright then the recipient will not see any record of the ecard, even if they check their spam folder.

By default, we will send a copy of your ecard to your email address the same time we send it to your recipient. You can work around a spam filter issue by forwarding this copy on to your recipient. This way the email will come from your email address instead of ours.

What do I do if an ecard will not load?

If you are having problems viewing your ecard, the problem may be temporary. Please wait a few minutes and try again. If you’re still unable to view the ecard, the following information may help.

How can I tell if the ecard I receive is really from

Here are some specific things that can help you determine if the email you received is from

Please note that we have recently made some important updates to our ecard emails to help you better recognize legitimate senders (read more about the important updates to our ecard emails to help you better recognize legitimate senders here).

If you are concerned about whether your ecard notice is valid and truly from, you can always follow these guidelines: ecard Emails vs. Fraudulent Ecard Emails:

Subject Line of the Email

Ours: (Sender’s name) has sent you an ecard from

Theirs: Subject line varies (i.e., “You’ve received an ecard from a classmate!” or “You’ve received a postcard from a family member!”).

Email “From”

Ours: Ecard from []

Theirs: [mailto:] (Note that the email address is random. This is just an example.) The malicious email could also be from what looks to be an actual personal email address.

Body of the Email

Ours: We will always include the sender’s name and email address within the body of the email itself. You should personally recognize this individual before engaging further in the email. If you have any doubt as to whether you know the individual mentioned, go directly to our site and search the pickup code there.

Theirs: May or may not include random individual’s name and email address.

Links within the Email

Ours: Our pickup link will always include in the link itself. In addition, we will never send you an EXE file. If your email contains a clickable URL that is an EXE file, do not click on it.

Theirs: Their pickup link does not start with, but instead shows a series of numbers (commonly referred to as an “IP Address”). Or sometimes the link is not a series of numbers, but when you hover over it with your cursor, an IP Address may appear. Do not click on any of these links.

If you believe you have been subjected to an invalid ecard notice, again please do not click on any links within that email. Please forward to to help further the investigation. Due to the nature of this email address, we will not be able to personally respond back to you regarding your email, but you can be assured that your example will help to further our investigation.

What do I do if I receive an inappropriate ecard?

We are very sorry that you received abusive communications in the form of one of our ecards. This obviously violates our “Terms of Service” and will not be tolerated. Unfortunately, given the open nature of the Internet, we are limited in what we can do. Generally, when users send emails of this nature, they use a false name. Our technology does not allow us to verify the email address of ecard senders.

We do have certain information about senders such as IP address and cookie number. Unfortunately, we are prohibited by law from releasing that information absent a subpoena or search warrant. If you feel physically threatened, you should contact your local law enforcement authorities immediately. We will cooperate with their investigation in any way we can, consistent with applicable law and our privacy policies.

If you would like, we can block your email address so that you will receive no further ecards from our site. Please be aware that this will also prevent family and friends from sending you appropriate ecards. If you want to take this step, let us know and we will start the process.

How long will my ecard be viewable?

To resend an ecard that hasn’t been received, please do one of the following:

  1. 1. Forward the copy of the ecard we sent to you to your recipient. Look for the subject line, “Your greeting has been sent!”
