Add us to your whitelist now
We don’t want you to miss a thing so here is how to keep our emails from disappearing into the spam/junk mail bin.
Many email and Internet providers are now using security software to block unwanted email – junk or spam. But sometimes this software can block email you really want to receive … like mine!
Make sure you receive all our emails!
So what’s a whitelist?
A whitelist is a list of accepted people / email addresses that your email client will consider trustworthy, and allow messages to be received.
Why is this important?
Unsolicited, unwanted advertising email, commonly known as “spam”, has become a big problem. It’s reached such proportions that most email services have put some sort of blocking or filtering system in place or begun relying on self-proclaimed blacklists to tell the good guys from the bad.
We applaud their intention to protect you from spam, but everyone agrees that the current systems for stopping spam are far from a perfect solution. They often block email that you’ve requested, the more responsible anti-spam activists are working hard to cut down on these “false positives”, but in the mean time, you might unexpectedly find you’re not getting your subscription’s content.
Whitelist us now, before your delivery is interrupted.
Of course, every email system is different so below are instructions for some of the more popular ones. If yours isn’t here, please contact your email client company (or Internet Service Provider folk) for their instructions, or Google the answer.
The email address to add to your whitelist is: firstname.lastname@example.org
