How Do I Access My Craigslist Account

I set up my account to list an item for free. When I go in and give my email address it indicates no such account has been set up.  How do I access my account to see if I have any responses to my ad that is listed?

You don't need an account to list an item and receive replies. There may have been a typo when you provided your email address. You can either re-list without an account, or set up a new account with a correct email address.
Hope this helps! If you like, you can comment here. Or to resubmit, go here.
