craigs list

My husband and I ran across a post on of a mom in need of diapers and shampoo. It seemed legit so while at wal mart today we went ahead and bought a box of diapers, shampoo, and conditioner. We sent an email to the "reply to" address on the top of the craigs list screen but we are unsure if that is how it works. Will she get our email?

  • Yeah, that's how it works. She should get it and if she chooses to reply, you'll get a reply, but it may not be from that same address, so check your messages carefully. I replied to an ad once, and the lady that listed the item replied to me using her personal e-mail address. The address on craigslist is a craigslist address that forwards the message to the lister's personal e-mail address. Good luck and what a nice thing to do!

  • you can also post in the same section RE: (insert title that the lady used) and let her know to check her email for a message from you because sometimes they end up in the spam folder.

  • That really was so kind of you. If only there were more people who were so generous.

  • yup. craigslist then sends her out an e-mail to her personal address and she can then reply back to your response.
