My Message Center - Administration

Use the Message Center to keep track of the message you send to contractors and the messages the Bid Express software sends to contractors for you, such as when new lettings are posted or proposals are withdrawn. You cannot control the Bid Express system messages.

Message Center information for contractors can be found here.

Messages can be filed in different mailboxes.  Incoming messages are stored in your Inbox and message sent by you are kept in your Sent Messages folder. Messages sent by the Bid Express service to your subscribers are kept in the System Messages folder. You can move any message to any mailbox.

To get to the message center, click the Messages icon in the upper right corner of the Bid Express page. To change mailboxes, click the mailbox name on the left.
