When you get a Tree Mail. Do they get stored so that you can go back to them or are they automatically deleted?
How do I get to them if they are stored? Could be just overlooking something, cannot see link.

Rick, your tree-mail does not get deleted unless you delete it. You can create folders for your tree mail too. Click on your t-mail envelope and there's a box on the left side of the screen where you will see a place that says Folders. Click on "Manage your Folders" and you can create folders by giving them a name, i.e. "Trades" where you might want to save tree mails regarding plant swaps/trades you've made etc.

Hope this helps.

Welcome to ATP, Rick!

Here's the ATP icon for accessing our Mailboxes. It's an open envelope in the upper left corner under the logo.

Thumb of 2013-12-20/RickCorey/893da8

After you settle in and decide what your favorite places are in the website, there is a VERY handy feature along the left side of the screen: a floating, customizable menu bar. You can put shortcuts there to any site inside ATP or any Internet URL.

I set up a favorite seed vendor, the Weather channel's 30-day forecast, The ATP Member map, the "Lettuce Database" and seven other off-site links.

I find that I use that more than my browsers "Bookmark" feature, because it's so much easier to use. You can set yours up from your Profile (the head-and-shoulders icon two spots to the right of the Mailbox icon).

Less easy is the Signature block. You can squeeze in as many links as will fit. I try to use short labels separated by "~~" so I can fit in as many links as possible.

We have a map showing locations of members who've entered easily identified addresses.

It turns out to be easier (but not as much fun) to search this Member List and find members by their distance from a location you type in. The button for that is at the bottom of most ATP pages, "Memberlist". That spot also has info about the banner of the day.

For example, you have two ATP neighbors within 52 miles.

I'm South of you on the WA coast, north of Seattle.

I hope some of those are useful to you. See you around the site!
