Q. Why can't I find the properties that I saved?
A. The New York Real Estate market changes rapidly, and the New York Post does not keep properties in its database that are no longer on the market. As a result, if you save properties that later are removed from our database (due to the fact that they've gone off the market), then these properties are automatically deleted from your profile.

Q. How can I get more information on a property?
A. Please email or call the associated broker. If you're looking for a property you don't see here, we might run your request as a House Hunt Challenge. Please send a query to realestate.letters@nypost.com

Q. How can I schedule an appointment to see a property?

  1. To schedule an appointment with a broker, you can usually click on "Contact This Broker" either in the search results grid or on the page dedicated exclusively to this property.
  2. On the grid, this link is located just beneath the brokerage's logo. On the individual page, the link is located on the right-hand side of the page, also under the brokerage's logo.
  3. In the event that there is no email address or broker associated with a property, make a note of the property ID (located in the first column of the search results grid) and contact the brokerage directly with your query.

Q. I'm having trouble with the search functions. What do I do?
A. Please use the Technical Issue form under the "Contact Us" link (at the bottom of any screen) to send us an e-mail, and describe a couple examples of the search criteria you are using so that we can attempt to reproduce the problem you are experiencing.

  2. Login with your current email address and password
  3. 2. On the "Manage Your Account" page click on "Update Your Email Address."
  4. Enter your alternate email address, enter it again to confirm, and hit "Continue." Your e-mail address should now be changed.
Q. How do I change the newsletter format to html or to text?
A. You can make this change in the account manager.
  1. Log in with your username (e-mail address) and password
  2. Click on "Modify Account Information".
  3. Scroll down and select "html" or "text" and hit "Continue".
Q. How do I add or remove sections to my newsletter?
  1. Go to the account manager and log in with your username and password.
  2. To add or subtract sections, scroll down to the New York Post Email Subscriptions section, and click on "Modify New York Post Email Subscriptions."

A. No. You can only sign up for the newsletter with the email address you used to register. If you would like to change the email address associated with your registration, please click here.

Q. How do I temporarily suspend my newsletter account?
A. We do not have a system in place that will allow us to suspend your account for a specified time. However, you can use the account manager to suspend your account indefinitely, and then return to the account manager when you would like to start receiving the newsletter again to "reactivate" your account. To do this:

  1. Go to the account manager and login with your username (email address) and password.
  2. When you arrive at the page containing your information, scroll down to the Account Options section and click on "Suspend or Reactivate Your Daily Newsletter". You'll be directed to a page asking you to confirm your desire to suspend the account.
  3. Click the box next to "I want to suspend my newsletter subscription," hit "Continue" and your account will be suspended.
  4. To reactivate, go through exactly the same process, choosing to "reactivate" instead.
Q. Why have I stopped receiving the newsletter?
A. Below are some of the most common reasons delivery of your newsletter stops:
  1. Your email service provider has a spam or virus filter in place that mistakenly identifies the NY Post newsletter as virus mail or as unwanted spam
  2. You have a filtering rule in place on your mail-checking software that is placing the New York Post daily newsletter automatically into your deleted items folder before you've read it
  3. You have mistakenly added newsletters@nypost.com to your "junk senders" list and now the newsletter is being automatically placed into your deleted items folder before you've read it.
  4. Your subscription may be deactivated. This can happen if you accidentally click on the unsubscribe button at the bottom of the newsletter you receive. It's easy to reactivate your subscription. Simply log on to the account manager with your email address and password. When you've logged in, scroll down and click on the link that reads: "Resubscribe to the Daily Newsletters." Confirm your choices, and you'll begin receiving the newsletter as of the following business day.
If the problem is #2 or #3, you can fix this on your own by altering your mail settings. If it's #1, then you'll have to contact your mail service provider for support.

Q. I just signed-up to receive the newsletter but I haven't gotten it yet. Why?
A. Most likely, you are not receiving a newsletter because you have not signed yourself up for any specific topics. You can add and subtract sections from your newsletter, change your email address, and/or sign up for a new newsletter under an additional address by visiting the account manager and logging in with your username and password.

Q. Why don't I receive the newsletter on weekends?
A. There are currently no plans to publish a weekend edition of the newsletter. If you think that a weekend edition of the New York Post's newsletter is a feature you'd like to have, please make this suggestion at: http://www.nypost.com/contact/technical.htm. This will ensure that your comment reaches the right parties.

Q. I suspect that the newsletter may have a virus attached to it. Is this possible?
A. The New York Post's daily newsletter does not contain a virus or any attachment when delivered from our servers. If you are having problems, it is likely that one of two things is happening:

  1. You are receiving a note from the virus checking software that you or your ISP has installed to scan your email for viruses. The notification says that the newsletter had a virus or some other type of objectionable content associated with it. If this is happening, contact your ISP and explain the problem to them. They can adjust your virus scanning software so that it does not incorrectly identify the newsletter as email containing a virus.
  2. You actually are receiving an email that contains a virus and looks like it is from the New York Post (i.e., the email says it is "from:newsletters@nypost.com"). If this is happening, please be assured that this message did not originate with us, or any of our partners. Many spammers and propagators of virus mail use a technique which allows them to insert an arbitrary email address in the "From:" field of an email, making it seem as though the message originated from someone other than the person who really sent it. To determine the true source of an unwanted message, ask your email client to display the complete headers of all email correspondence you receive. Although email headers can also be forged, they are frequently a better indication of the source of a message than its "From" field alone.
Q. I use WebTv and cannot view the newsletter in html format. How do I fix this?
A. You might want to consider changing the format of your newsletter to text. You can do this by going to the account manager and logging in with your username (email address) and password.

When you are logged in, you'll see a screen containing some of your personal information. Scroll down, and you should see a link called "Change Your Newsletter Format". By clicking on this link, you will be taken to a menu where you may choose to receive the text version of the newsletter.
