When you login to your Sortnet account you will be directed to the Inbox Folder of the web mail interface automatically. This folder has the same function as any other e-mail client and web mail interface. All your e-mail messages are received and stored in this folder in the order of received date and time. You may check all your received mail in this folder and can read it in ordinary email format by clicking on the message. Please note that your name will appear in the FROM column on the messages forwarded by you therefore you may identify any message by its subject.
After processing the messages received by your inbox any message having no cargo proposal or tonnage position and any circular messages that have not been classified will be stored in this folder. This folder enables you to quickly check the messages sent to you for any purpose other than a cargo or vessel quotation.
You may start your search when you are in inbox folder.
After this initial step, it's not necessary to browse back to the inbox folder if you are currently in any selected search folder.
After entering all the necessary parameters you can perform a search. Please click search button. After you click the search button a new folder will open in seconds. This folder will show you a list of the mail containing suitable cargo or vessels matching your parameters entered in the search section. When you click on any message, the message will open and the cargoes or vessels matching your criteria will appear with opening or loading ports highlighted in a different color. This is designed to enable you to notice the cargo or vessel you are looking for on the message body easily. Therefore you do not need to scan the entire message (which can be very long sometimes) to find criteria, you just check the highlighted part(s) of the message.
You might compose a message by clicking this button. A new blank page willl open where you can type the message and send to one or various recipents.
You might need to send a reply to the sender of any message which might be a freight inquiry, or a question about workability or a proposal of vessel or cargo, etc. Sortnet enables you to send such message instantly to the sender of any mail you read.
If you receive e-mail messages with continuous mistake (not classified or mis-classied) you may send a warning message to the sender by clicking the Notice to Sender button.
If a circular is typed in a proper format but was not classified or is miss-classified, you can report it by clicking the Report Errors to Sortnet button on the e-mail reading page. Our software team can analyze it to make the necessary upgrades to the processing software.
