Creating a new email account for the purpose of setting up Effortless Tracking as well as your carrier accounts (UPS, USPS, FedEx, Amazon) is a great way to help manage your packages even further. This will allow you to keep an inbox with only delivery notifications. Follow the guide below to get setup:

  1. Create a new email account 
  2. Setup Email Forwarding
     - Go to Settings (Looks like a cog in the top right hand corner of your email)
     - At the top, select "Forwarding and POP/IMAP"
     - Under the first section titled "Forwarding" select "Add a forwarding address"
     - Enter the email address you wish to forward to. Select "Proceed"
     - A confirmation code will be sent to the address provided to verify permission.
     - Go to your inbox that you used for your Forwarding Address, find the email            pertaining to "Forwarding Confirmation" and open it up. Inside you will find a          a link.
     - Clicking the link will verify the mail forwarding address
     - Go back to your new inbox in the "Forwarding and POP/IMAP" menu
     - select "Forward a copy of incoming mail to"
     - You should now receive any shipping notifications in both inboxes
  3. Use this email account to create logins for UPS, USPS, FedEx, and Amazon. Have your shipping notifications sent here.
  4. Add this email address to your Effortless Tracking

You should now be all set to receive delivery notifications in a secondary email address. If you find you need further assistance, please reach out to us through Intercom on the bottom right hand side of your screen, email (info@getboxlock.com), or via Facebook / Twitter.
