Arrow Invite fellow actuaries to the Outpost with our new address book import system



Like the Actuarial Outpost? Think it could be helpful to a friend taking exams? Why keep it secret, because now it’s easier than ever to invite your friends to the Outpost. Just like many other social networking sites like Facebook, MySpace and Friendster, the AO now has an email address import system that allows you to import all of your contacts from many popular email service providers. Once you’ve imported your contacts, you can pick and choose who receives an invite by clicking the check boxes that correspond with each email address. Then, just click ‘Invite Friends’ and each of your contacts will receive a personalized letter from you telling them about the different features of the Outpost, and how they can join. If you would like to invite some friends to the Outpost, follow this link - http://www.actuarialoutpost.com/invite.


If you do not use one of the email services providers, you can always send emails to your friends the old fashion way, one email at a time. I’ve made it easier to link to the register page as well. Just cut and paste this link - http://www.ActuarialOutpost.com/register - and send it to your friends, and they’ll be on their way to becoming Outpost posters in no time. Also, be sure to remind them that we only accept non-anonymous email addresses for registrations, which means no Yahoo!, Gmail, Hotmail or other accounts like that.


P.S. Yes, I see the irony that we do not accept new registrations from the email provider list used in the invite new friends contacts importer. It’s a shame, but that’s the way we have to do it, to keep this place all spic and span!

Can you promise to save all the e-mail addresses imported and spam the heck out of them?

Please?

Sorry, I can't promise that. That would be counterproductive.

None of the email addresses you import will be stored, and only one message will be sent. After the messages are sent, all information such as login details and email addresses are automatically deleted. We do not store any of the information provided.

You first have to click on the email service provider that corrosponds with your email address, and make sure you see your logo on the page. So if your email was actuarydude@yahoo.com, you would first click on "yahoo", then enter your email and password into the input fields, and click invite friends.

It will then import your contacts, and you can pick and choose who you send the invite to. Once you've selected who you want to send the message to, click on Invite My Friends below the list of email addresses.

I banned myself, but after a few long emails, I managed to convinced myself that I would not do that again; so I unbanned myself.

Then I bought myself an ice cream cone.
