When you enter Electricka's
Email Center you are prompted either to Open New Account or to Log In To
My Account. Since you don't yet have an account at this point, click the
Open New Account button. A Create Account form opens.
You enroll by answering the
questions on the open Create Account form, as follows:
You must supply an email
address and password; you must also confirm your password and select an
email format. The other items are optional. After you enter the
mandatory sign in information, you may select any optional items that
express your personal preferences:
- The name you provide may be your real name or it may
be an alias.
- The email address must be the address at which you
want to receive Electricka's email.
- Check the newsletters or other email to which you want to
subscribe or don't select any at this time. You can come back later

Account button. Your filled-out Create Account form will close and you
will automatically exit Electricka's Email Center.
You can now log in and manage your account but you cannot receive
email subscriptions until you Activate. (See Manage

Activation is the way you set your new account in
motion; it's analogous to the way you activate a new charge account after
you receive it in the mail and before you can charge to it. Until
you Activate your account, your email subscriptions will not reach you.
Here's how to Activate:
- After you finish filling out your Create
Account form and you return to Electricka's Email Center, Electricka
promptly sends you an Activation email at the email address you gave
when you filled out the form.
- Electricka's email will ask you to confirm your
email address and activate your subscriptions. You do so by clicking an
address given in her email.
- Make sure you're online when you click.
- Electricka then displays a message on your
screen confirming that you're now enrolled and active. The message
invites you to manage your account and tells you to expect a welcome
- Electricka promptly sends you a Welcome email,
thanking you for enrolling and inviting you to visit your account.

Subscribing And Unsubscribing
Subscribing to one of Electricka's emailings is like
starting a magazine subscription. Signing up lets Electricka know that
you want to receive all emails she publishes for that particular subscription starting
from the time you subscribe.
- After enrolling (creating your account), you are eligible to sign up for any or all of the
subscriptions Electricka currently offers.
- You start your new subscriptions by placing a check
mark in the check box for each subscription you want to receive.
About your subscriptions
All your subscriptions are sent to the email address
listed in your account.
Each subscription has its own publication schedule;
some emails are issued periodically and some are only issued as needed.
Don’t worry if it takes Electricka a little time to
send your first or succeeding emails; she only sends new email when
she has news. Some mailings are only sent once.
You can sign up for new subscriptions or unsubscribe
at any time by returning to Electricka’s Email Center.
Once you unsubscribe, you will no longer receive any
new emailings for that subscription, but you will continue to receive
emailings for the other subscriptions you have signed up for.
Look for a collection of Electricka’s past emails in
her Archived Newsletters section.
