Frequently Asked Email Alert and Premium Service Notification Q & A's
With the inception if our new Premium Service, Intrepid Timer's Investment Strategies, and the timing of the available buy / sell signals, we have had to implement additional alert options to our subscribers.
The Q&A list below will address several options and how to get signed up for each.
Not a current Premium Service subscriber?
How get started
Subscribing to a Premium Service does not automatically put you on the email alert list. The email alerts are opt in so you have to sign up for them separately.
Please go to www.tsptalk.com/email_alerts.html and enter your email address in the form. It will ask you which list you would like to be on. Choose any and all services you wish, and you can add more than one address if needed (work email, home email, etc.)
These email alerts are free, but they do not contain any premium service fund or buy / sell information. It will only provide a link to the reports alerting you that a important message has been posted in the Premium Service area.
Our 3rd party email service does not know who is and who is not an active premium service member so we do not put buy / sell signals in the email alerts. To receive that kind of alert, please keep reading...
(Since email servers
vary, we cannot guarantee the timeliness of when you receive your alerts.)

If you are a member of the message board (MB) you can subscribe to specific threads where email notifications are sent when new posts are made.
Intrepid Timer started a new thread for subscribers, to post his system's signals. When the signals are posted, anyone who has subscribed to this thread and requested notification, will be sent an email to the email address in your MB account.
Important: When a post is made in this thread by Intrepid Timer, and
the email notifications go out, you need to go into the message board (you
can use the link in the email notification) to view the message. This
will reset your account.
If you don't go in and read the message, the software is set up to not
send the next notification. I guess this is to getting avoid a bunch
of emails when you are not viewing the thread.

Intrepid Timer will be posting his signal changes in a thread in his Premium Talk Forum on the Message Board (http://www.tsptalk.com/mb/showthread.php?t=9185).
Subscribers to Intrepid Timer's service who are members of the Message Board will be able to subscribe to this thread and receive an email alert with the system signal change when he posts to this account. Make sure the email address on file with the message board is where you want these alerts sent. (See USERCP to update your address).
To subscribe to a thread, go to the thread you wish to subscribe to. Click on the "Thread Tools" button right above this first post and scroll down to "Subscribe to this thread". Click on that and then under "Notification Type", click "Instant notification by email".
By posting his moves in this new thread, it will also help those of you who may not be able to to access the TSP Talk Premium Service area with your mobile devices (some mobile devices cannot view secure server content).
Once you get to that thread, Intrepid_Timer has posted instructions on how to subscribe to this new signal thread.
He will also be posting before 11:30am whether or not he gets a signal change.
PLEASE DO NOT POST IN THAT THREAD! It will be for system signals only.
Subscribers can post comments in other threads within his Premium Talk Area.
This goes along with the text message option in the next question below:
You can use Gmail to filter out emails to be forwarded to your cell phone. You could look for a combination of words in the subject of the email using Intrepid's forum thread title "Intrepid_Timer's Signals (Please Do Not Post Here)".
For example, if the subject has the word "signal" in it, you might filter that email to be forwarded to your cell phone as a text message. If you choose this option, you would want to use your Gmail email address in your message board account. See below for more on text messages.

Yes. But we do not send the text messages. It can be done through Gmail. Here's how (or at least how I do it)...
You need to have a Gmail account. Here's how to create one:
- Go to www.google.com
- Click on the Gmail link along the top of the page
- There is a big button on the right that says Create an Account
- Fill in the info, and you will have your account once it is confirmed.
Once you have a working Gmail Account:
- Go back to Google and the Gmail link to login
- Once logged in, click on the link in the top right called "Settings"
- In the horizontal Settings Menu click on the "Filters" link
- Find and click on the "Create a new Filter" link
- Input the criteria for the filter.
In the field that says: "Has the words" you might enter the word "Alert". Or you
might just want to see the word “Intrepid” or "RevShark", or whatever email
alerts you have signed up for, in the subject line.
You can use Gmail to filter
out emails to be forwarded to your cell phone. You could look for a word, or
a combination of words, in the body of the email using Intrepid's forum
thread title "Intrepid_Timer's Signals Alert (Do Not Post Here)", for
So, the word 'Signals Alert' will be in the
body of the email, or "Intrepid' will be in the subject line (depending on
the service), and it can be filtered to be forwarded to your cell phone as a
text message. If you choose this option, you would want to use your Gmail
email address in your message board account. See below for more on text
Or you can look for all email that is sent from us. The problem is, I don’t know if this address from our 3rd party email service is constant. It might be (and this is broken here for security purposes): thomas at tsptalk dot ccsend dot com – but I can’t be certain.
You could always have all email that is sent to this Gmail account filtered. In that case you'd want to add your Gmail email address to our email alert list and also in your User Control Panel
(UserCP) in the message board.
- After you set up your filter, click the “Next Step” button.
- Click the “Forward it to” box and add your phone number in email. I know Verizon uses this format: firstname.lastname@example.org
It is probably different for other mobile services so you may want to look it up, although this list may help...
Add your new Gmail address to our email alert system (www.tsptalk.com/email_alerts.html).
The email alert will be sent to your Gmail account, and if your filter / forward was set up correctly, it should send a text to your phone.
I tried adding the ##########@vtext.com number right into the email alert page, but it does not seem to work.
I tried entering my @vtext.com number into my message board profile as my email address and it actually worked. Something to consider.
You may want to add our email address () to your contact list (see left side menu in Gmail) to help avoid the email being marked as spam.

Because we send out a lot of alerts, some mail servers assume we are spammers and either completely block the email, or it gets sent to your spam / junk folder. You should check those folders for the alerts.
If you find the alert in your spam / junk folder, there should be a way to mark it as 'not junk or not spam' etc. The filters may make note of that.
Also, you should add
to your address book / list of contacts. That is another filter the mail servers might use. If the new email is coming from a known sender, it may let it through.
If all else fails, you can contact your email provider and ask them what you can do to get email from
