BACK

How do your Online Greeting Cards work?
A Greeting Card is a web page that is created when you fill out and submit the postcard form. We send an email to the recipient and she will be informed that a postcard is waiting for her in our post office. You can even overwrite our standard email message or add some text of your own.
BACK

Can I enhance my postcards with a picture or music file from my personal computer?
Yes. Please upload the file to our server. We can't take it from your PC. To upload a file just click the "Your own picture or music" link in the "Special Features" box at our home page.
BACK

When will my postcards be discarded?
Our postal clerk discards postcards 4 weeks after they were sent (not written). Scheduled cards will therefore be stored on our server for up to 3 months.
BACK

How do I check on my card to see if it has been sent or picked up?

Non-scheduled cards and cards scheduled for delivery on the current date are being sent immediately. Most cards will therefore reach the recipient's mailbox within less than 5 minutes.

Cards scheduled for delivery on a future date are being sent between 02:00 and 07:00 a.m. Pacific Standard Time. Cards to Asia and Australia reach their recipients late at night. Just select the date minus 1 day if you send to destinations far east.

We'll send you an email notification when the recipient picks up your card. Exceptions:

  • You unchecked the "Confirm Delivery" box when you wrote the card
  • You did not enter your correct email address (sender address)
  • You already picked up the card yourself. You won't receive a second notification.
  • Multiple recipients: You will be notified about the first pickup only.
BACK

Can I install this postcard system on my own Web site?
Yes, you can have a fully customized Greeting Card service on your Web site. Its free and no programming is required! Just put our "magic link" on one of your pages. Postcards are very effective in promoting your Web site because there is a link to it on each card. More information.
BACK

Where can I log in to change my registered greeting card site?
Here's your Control Panel. Please bookmark this page.

Your Reservations and Privacy Concerns

I can't believe this service is free.
Believe it or not, writing and reading our Online Greeting Cards is free. Operating a Greeting Card site isn't free, of course. We therefore need to display ads on the site.
BACK

Can you track the sender of anonymous cards?
Now and then our system gets abused to send threatening or otherwise offending cards. Of course there is a fake name and email address on those postcards. However, we log the card's time and claim numbers as well as the sender's IP address. So if the culprit's Internet Service Provider is co-operatative (they will support criminal investigations), these data can be used to find out their real identity. Please report all abuses to abuse@all-yours.net.
BACK

Do you record names and email addresses etc.?
As a TRUSTe certified web site we fully respect your privacy. Please consult our Privacy Policy
BACK

Will there be any ads on my greeting card?
No. Its your private card. That's why we don't add advertisements to it. Most other greeting card sites on the web have ads on the actual cards. You even cannot control which advertisement will show up there.
BACK

Can unauthorized users read my cards?
No. Please consult our Privacy Policy
BACK

How about computer viruses and Greeting Cards?
Our program eliminates possibly malicious code from a postcard before it is saved on our server. Also, computer viruses can't be transmitted with a postcard, because we do not transmit executable binaries to your computer. However, some anti virus programs may mix up the data in images and music files. So you can safely disregard all virus warnings that may pop up when you read or write cards at our web site.
BACK

I'm concerned about cookies. Are they really necessary?

Troubleshooting

I can't find the postcard that was sent to me.
We'll help you find it. Please send email to missing@all-yours.net.
BACK

When I return to a form some or all of my input is lost or has changed. Why?
You seem to be using a very old browser like Internet Explorer 2.x or 3.x. These browsers do not save inputs when you click the browser's BACK button to return to a form. We implemented a work-around on some pages. Please don't use the browser's BACK button if there is a BACK button on the actual postcard form.

Netscape and Internet Explorer 4.0 or better automatically save all your inputs. Please upgrade.
BACK

Does this program work with AOL or WebTV?
Yes. Be sure that you have the latest version of AOL and WebTV. Their new browsers support most features of our program.
BACK

I can't hear the postcard music. Does your site require special software?
First of all, you need special hardware (a sound card and speakers) and driver software to play music on a computer. To hear music on the World Wide Web you may also need a browser "plug-in". Latest versions of Netscape and Internet Explorer have music plug-ins on board and there should be no problem to play the music at our site. To take advantage of advanced features you may want to install a plug-in anyway. We recommend the free Crescendo MIDI plug-in because at our web site Crescendo supports "streaming audio" (play music while it loads).
BACK

I wanted to submit a form but there was no submit button.
If Netscape (maybe other browsers, too) runs into memory problems, it simply doesn't display the submit buttons. You need to make more memory available (close other windows/programs) and reload the page.
BACK

Sometimes your program is way too slow. Can't you make it faster?
You are suffering from the World Wide Wait (slow Net traffic). The execution time of all our web programs is less than one fourth of a second.

Your Suggestions

You should add music from ...
Unlike other postcard services on the Web we take copyrights very seriously. That's why we offer original music with composer's permission. We can't offer recent popular songs at our Web site. If your favorite song is available on the web you can enter its Web address (URL) into the "Custom Music" input field (Step 2 of the postcard creation process). Please note that most music files on the web are copyrighted.
BACK

You should add more pictures of ...
Our Picture Gallery features more than 2000 photos, animations and clip arts. We constantly add new pictures. If your favorite image is available on the web you can enter its Web address (URL) into the "Custom Image" input field (Step 1 of the postcard creation process). Please note that most images on the web are copyrighted.
