Hello, I have listed an ad in the marketplace to sell our timeshare. Someone has contacted me and wants more info however my email is not configured so that I can simply hit reply and be able to respond to him.

So Dave, if you are listening and want more info on TVV, please send me another message with your complete email!! I hoping he will see this!!

Aside from that, I thought other people might want to know that in advance so whatever messages they want to send will get thru

To respond to anyone on TUG click on their blue name on the left hand margin, and then click on "Start a Conversation".

If you do come to an agreement with someone to sell your Timeshare then I would suggest using LT Transfers to handle the transaction. Their website below:

HI, thank you for your help! Unfortunately my problem is with someone who messaged me thru the marketplace. There is no sidebar like in the forums. His email is just a "name" with a hidden email address.

Since my computer isn't configured to be able to respond just by clicking on the link in this email (which is a microsoft email app) I am unable to send a response. I tried to 'copy the email address' but the only thing that actually copies is "name".

I took a quick look at how to configure my yahoo account late last night but I would rather not mess with something that works just fine as it is - plus we are leaving for vacation in a few days and I don't want to risk it.

Thanks for the LT Transfer recommendation! I am planning to use them!

Happy to help! Unfortunately this is a function of your web browser, not TUG.

if clicking on an email address within your browser does not automatically open your email (like gmail/hotmail for instance) that can be configured within your browser itself.

here is a quick webpage on how to configure web browsers to auto open a new email using the gmail for instance when you click on an email link:


alternatively if you do not wish to do this, you can simply copy and paste the email address and use that in the "TO" line of a new email using the email client of your choice.

Hi Brian, thanks for taking the time to explain how to do this. I realize the problem is with my browser but I don't want to change any of my settings because we are going away and I won't have a computer to fix anything if something isn't right. That would be a bigger problem for me.

The other problem is that with this particular email I cannot copy and paste his email into my Yahoo account. Is simply doesn't allow it. All I get when I right click and say 'copy email address' and then paste is that same "name" but it isn't even clickable at that point. So I can't communicate with him at all. I'm sure he is wondering why I haven't answered him. Is there any way around that?

That's why I posted my original post about adding a full email to ensure the receiver is able to respond. I have edited my original ad to explain that if someone wants to insure a response from me they may need to send be there actual email. I am hoping he sees it.

I'm sure there are a number of people who don't want to do that but I feel bad not responding to him. Again, thanks for your info. Valerie

unfortunately some folks dont fill out their email addresses properly or otherwise have typos in them, we cant do much to control that. Looking at your last message that is whats happened here. he simply put his name (or last name) in the email field instead of his email address.

he did provide a phone number, have you tried calling it?

Aaah! I didn't think of that!! would the phone number be directly to the right of the 'email'?? OR is that some other reference number? Sorry, I haven't posted an ad before so not sure! Thx

in the message the phone number is listed right next to their email address yes but only if the person sending you the message fills that field out when sending you the message. its optional.
