Using your anonymized email alias: Include the word [Important], with
brackets as shown, anywhere in the subject line. The email will not be blocked and you
won't receive a bounce back message.
Note: You can use capital or lowercase letters,
but the word important must be surrounded by brackets to be effective. For example,
the subject line "Need additional information" should instead be "[Important] Need
additional information" or "Need additional information [Important]."
Important: Use of [Important] for non-critical messages may result in the
suspension of your selling privileges. If you use other subjects, the message will
bounce back if the buyer has opted out. Buyers can also flag messages as inappropriate.
Therefore, the content of your messages should be limited to requesting only the
information you absolutely need to complete an order.
