Manage Messages and Notifications

You can sign up to receive messages sent from one or more agencies or sent by the Bid Express service when the agency performs a specific action, such as adding a new letting or withdrawing a proposal. Your Messages icon in the top right of the Bid Express web page will display a star icon when you receive messages that match your selected notification preferences, and you can also sign up to receive email notifications. You must be signed up for agency messages in order to receive other notifications. Agency administrators can see who subscribed to receive messages for their agency.

Messages are sent to your inbox. From there, you can move them to different mailboxes.
