Encountering an error? It may be due to one of the following:
- Your email address does not match the domain of the subscribing account. To successfully create a new IFLP Alert account, you must use your institutional email address. (Email addresses ending in yahoo.com, aol.com, or gmail.com, for instance, will not work).
- You have already created an IFLP Alert account with the email address in question. If this is the case, you will be unable to create a duplicate. Learn how to edit an existing account.
