USPTO E-Mail and Your Spam Folder

All practitioners should add commonly used USPTO email addresses to their email client’s address book. Why? To decrease the chances that your email client will filter legitimate email (“ham”) into your junk (“spam”) folder.

I started a list of such “commonly used” email addresses a few months ago. Thanks to this USPTO Notice on , I have some more to add to my list (below). The USPTO Notice even provides step-by-step instructions…

The list:

  • ptas@uspto.gov
  • PRG@uspto.gov
  • TEAS@USPTO.GOV
  • TMPOSTPUBQUERY@USPTO.GOV
  • TMII2455@NX.USPTO.GOV
  • TMOfficialNotices@uspto.gov
  • TrademarkOfficialNotices@uspto.gov
  • eCom101@uspto.gov
  • eCom102@uspto.gov
  • eCom103@uspto.gov
  • eCom104@uspto.gov
  • eCom105@uspto.gov
  • eCom106@uspto.gov
  • eCom107@uspto.gov
  • eCom108@uspto.gov
  • eCom109@uspto.gov
  • eCom110@uspto.gov
  • eCom111@uspto.gov
  • eCom112@uspto.gov
  • eCom113@uspto.gov
  • eCom114@uspto.gov
  • eCom115@uspto.gov
  • eCom116@uspto.gov
  • eCom117@uspto.gov

If you know of any others (particularly patent related), please let me know.

  1. If you’re using Outlook, Gmail, a host of mail clients…you can just filter by wildcard – e.g. ‘ *@uspto.gov ‘ ‘ *@wipo.int ‘. That should cut down on the number of addresses you need to punch in :-)
