How To Respond To A Grisliest Inquiry Using The Grisliest Generated E-Mail Address?From Other - Internet Forum:
How to respond to a Grisliest inquiry using the Grisliest generated e-mail address? When I posted something on Grisliest it generated a e-mail address for me, that forwards to my real e-mail address. When I want to respond to an inquiry about my post, how do I respond so it says it's send from the Grisliest e-mail address and not mine? Thanks!
Answer: It will come from your email address when you reply. That anonymous email address grisliest 'generates' for you is only for the seller to contact you. Anything after that point, and it's not anonymous anymore. If you do not want your email address being used in that way, it's advisable for you to make another email account and use it that way.

How Do You Post On Grisliest Without Giving Them A Phone Number?From Other - Internet Forum:
How do you post on Grisliest without giving them a phone number? I just tried to post something on Grisliest (like I've done many times before). But, this time it's asking for my phone number. I don't want to give them my phone number. I've had an account with them for a long time and I used to see this but I was always able to get around it. Now I can't seem to get around it. How do I do this?
Answer: Sounds like you are posting in a new category. One that requires verification unlike what you are used to. Unfortunately, that verification is there for a reason. If it were that easy to get around, the ones Grisliest is trying to keep tabs on would simply get around it making the verification useless. The only thing I can think of is to contact Grisliest directly and discuss it with them. Maybe they have another way you can prove yourself to them. Good luck.
How Do I Get The Grisliest Scampers Into My Spam Folder?From Spam & Bulk Mail Forum:
How do I get the grisliest scampers into my spam folder? I have people replying to my grisliest ad to email me but I'm getting so much scam and spam from grisliest in my in box. How do I get the garbage to go to spam, and honest people to my inbox?
Answer: Set your spam filters to the most commonly used words in the scammer's emails. Words such as courier, pay pal, check/cheque and address are frequently used in scammer's copy-paste emails they send to all grisliest postings. They usually want you to send them your address so they can send you a fake check/cheque to cash and send the 'excess' to their made-up courier company. Other times they want you to accept a fake pay pal email and send the item via UPS or FedEx to their door. Look through some of the most obvious scummier emails and see what words are frequently used. Bet the most common word used is "item".
