Selling stuff on craigslist / problems with email relay?
« on: September 03, 2015, 07:31:54 AM »
I'm trying to sell a couch on CL and it's turning out to be a little more difficult than anticipated. I've had a handful of (real) people express serious interest, but when I replied, not one has gotten back to me. I know people can be flaky, but a 0% response rate seemed a little low! Wondering if something was going wrong, I tested out replying to my own ad and responding to that message and it turns out that my responses haven't been getting sent through the relay back to the potential buyers.

I edited the ad to have people contact me via text instead of email, and put a note in that anyone who contacted me via email and didn't get a response should text, so hopefully that'll work out, but it's a little annoying that the relay would fail without any notification. Has anyone else run into this? What did you do about it?

Common problem on CL relay servers. Generally solved as you've done.
