CL Auto Poster has the ability to post each ad after logging into your craigslist (or kijiji) account(s). This means the ad will actually post to your account which can be useful for many purposes. If you wanted your ads to post to a CL (or Kijiji) account, then you simply input your CL (or Kijiji) account(s) into the ACCOUNTS section of the software (click on the last row of the table to input new account). There is a tab called "Accounts" and on that tab you can input one or as many craigslist accounts (email handles) into each row (click on the blank row to add new account). You can set one master password box at the bottom of the list if password needs to be the SAME for ALL accounts in the list.

There are special buttons for performing group actions on selected accounts like renewing ads, deleting ads etc..
Renew accounts ads now - Renew all live ads found in selected accounts
Delete accounts ads now - Delete all live ads found in selected accounts
Import accounts ads now - Import into the program all live ads found in selected accounts
Verify email settings - Check pop3 emails settings, read and verify incoming emails.
Import accounts from file - Click it to fill the table from file. Please go here
Delete checked accounts - Removes checked accounts from the table

- Make sure there is a checkbox by each account in the list that you want to post with at the current time - To edit an account on the list, simply double-click on the email address and the row will turn into an editable text box
- You should input CL (or Kijiji) username in the first column and its password in the second column.
- You should fill also pop3 server/email/email password settings for each account for auto email verification. You can leave email password blank if it is the same as for cl/kijiji account. You can leave pop3 server blank for gmail accounts or if it is like pop.youremaildomain.com. Email settings under settings tab are used for email verification if settings under Accounts tab are incorrect or absent. Click 'Verify Accounts Emails' to verify your settings and check report under reports tab.
- If CL Bot can't login to your account because it was never created then it will try to create it automatically with the email settings you filled. You can use this feature for creating new cl and kijiji accounts.
- It is one of cl rules that email must be verified with the same IP as the ad was posted. That is why it is important that email verification must be done automatically. This way the software won’t change IP before email verification. So email forwarding must be setup properly in your email accounts or input your pop3 emails settings for each email account under Accounts tab for automatic email verification.
- You should input your phone numbers in phone column under Accounts tab for auto-filling phone numbers during phone verification (phone number for each account must be different) or use !text{contact_phone|19173331122} keyword in your ad (replace 19173331122 with your own phone number).
- Input account like @yourdomain.com if you need to set catchall domain or its phone (It is not recommended to use 19173331122 with phone verification because random email is assigned with fixed phone number. You won’t be able to re-verify email/phone in this case).
- You can renew/repost/delete or import all ads in the selected accounts with a renewallads campaign. Please go here
- You can use !login{username1|passw1} keyword (input it anywhere in your ad’s body) to specify what account to use for selected ad. It has more priority than Accounts tab. CL Auto Poster looks for email settings to verify email under Accounts tab even if you use !login{} keyword. So you should input your account and its email settings under Accounts tab anyway. Please go here
- Select row by clicking on grey field (the whole row must be selected) and press delete button on the keyboard to delete a row.
- Input !city{New York},!campaign{default},!proxy{} or other keyword(s) in the Options (or phone) column to use account only for specified city/campaign/proxy (i.e. New York city and default campaign and proxy in this example).
- Input !kj{Yes} in the options column for kijiji accounts. 2nd column is used for account's password.
- CL has a posting limit of 3 postings per account.
- "Auto-pause while phone verification" option means that software will automatically click pause button (it is under Post tab) to give you a chance to input your phone number and verify it if craigslist asks for this.

*NOTE* When posting directly through a craigslist account, the status of your ad in the Ad Manager will say "waiting for email". This is because when you are posting through a craigslist account, there is no email sent to publish your ads because craigslist skips that step if you are logged into an account.
