Step 4: Wait 1 hour, then connect to Warmup Inbox

Once you've completed steps 1-3, you will be able to connect your account to Warmup Inbox! We suggest waiting for 1 hour so that the setting changes have time to propagate. 

Foreseen Issues

At times it takes a few hours for your newly adjusted inbox settings to propagate. If you're still getting an error within Warmup Inbox, then wait 24 hours and then try again. If you get stuck, please let us know at
