Troubleshooting

Problem: Pocket says my URL was invalid

Currently, Pocket can only save links from emails. It does not save the full text of the email itself. Make sure you include the URL you want to save in the body of the email. Pocket will save the first URL it finds.

Problem: I sent an email but the link never appeared in my list

In most cases, Pocket should save your link within a few seconds. However, it is possible that saving email may be delayed by a few minutes, or in rare cases, an hour or two. Please be patient, but if the links never arrive, please let us know

If the link never shows up, make sure you check your Spam folder. If there was a problem with your email, Pocket may have replied to you. This email might have ended up in your spam folder.

Problem: I would like to save from more than one email address

You can send links from any number of email addresses. To add a new email address to your account, just go to the Email Accounts page

Problem: I sent multiple links, but only one was added

At the moment, it is only possible to process one link per email we receive. If you send multiple links, only the first will be processed.
