Match by Mail
What is it?
With Match by Mail, we do all the work for you. Instead of making you sign in to find matches, we'll send them directly to your email inbox!
How it Works
Once your profile is complete (and unless you opt out), we'll begin sending your Mutual Matches right to the email address you registered with. You let us know how often. Match.com by Mail is available weekly, every 3 days, or daily. You can update your settings in the Match.com by Mail section of your Email Preferences page.
Adding Custom Searches
At any time, you can easily add custom searches to the matches we send you. To do this, just go through the usual steps to perform a custom search. Once your search preferences are set, click on the Save Search link. In the options box that pops up, give the search a name, check the box for "E-mail me my matches," and click on Save Search.
My Results Don't Match My Preferences!
Sorry about that. The idea is that we want to send you a fresh set of matches in every email. These are usually your Mutual Matches. But depending on how broad/narrow your preferences are and how often we send your matches to you, we may not always have new Mutual Matches for you each time. When this happens, our systems automatically broaden some of the criteria, such as location or age, and send you matches as close as possible to your preferences under the heading "Members We Selected for You" (since they're not technically "matches").
I'm Not Receiving My Matches!
You might want to visit your Email Preferences page under Account Settings and make sure you've selected how often you want to receive your matches. If that doesn't fix the problem, it also might help to check your email provider to ensure they don't block messages sent to you by Match or its members.
If you don't want to receive Match by Mail, you can update your preferences in the Match by Mail section of your Email Preferences page.
