About the C.A.R.E. Member Directory


You are invited to join the CARE member E-mail directory so that you will be able to be contacted by other CARE members. 

How it works 

Participating members are assigned a CARE E-mail address which is listed in the Directory. E-mail reaching that CARE address is forwarded automatically to the member's existing personal E-mail mailbox. 

In the example below, another retiree is seeking to reach Joe, who is listed in the CARE Member Directory:

Joe receives the message in his personal in-box like any other mail.  If Joe choose to reply, that reply is sent from Joe's existing personal E-mail account, just like any other E-mail he sends, and it is sent directly back to the source:

Thus, the CARE address listed in the Directory is only used to establish the initial contact, and is then no longer required.

How Your Privacy Is Protected

Your personal E-mail address remains private; it is never published or revealed by CARE.  Only the CARE address is published on this website, using a spam-resistant technique.

You retain control:  Once the forwarded E-mail reaches your existing personal mailbox, you treat it like any other E-mail - reply to it, delete it, or ignore it - it's up to you.

Participation in the directory and forwarding service is voluntary.  You only join if you wish to receive E-mail contacts from other CARE members. 

Sending and Accessing E-mail

You cannot send E-mail from the CARE address.  As always, you send E-mail from your existing personal E-mail account.  

You will not have direct access to CARE E-mail mailboxes. In fact, no mail will be stored at CARE mailboxes, which will be used exclusively for automatic forwarding to an existing personal address. As always, E-mail will be addressed to your personal E-mail account and you will access it there.
