Over the last couple of years e-mail providers and internet companies have taken significant steps to block unwanted e-mails, otherwise known as spam. Sometimes these programs accidentally block emails that you want to receive.
Add the following emails to your person email whitelist:
A whitelist is a list of email addresses or domain names which you tell your email provider you wish to receive messages from.
Why Is This Important?
Unsolicited, unwanted advertising e-mail, commonly known as “spam”, has become a big problem. It’s reached such proportions that most e-mail services and Internet Service Providers (ISPs) 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.
I 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 e-mail that you’ve requested, but that fits somebody’s idea of what spam looks like. 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…
As it happens, there’s something you can do to keep your subscription’s content from falling into the false positive trap, adding out email to your “white-list”.
White-list email@example.com now, before your delivery is interrupted.
The method for white listing will be different for every e-mail system. Please follow instructions for your specific e-mail provider or ISP.
1. In your inbox, locate an email from firstname.lastname@example.org (ex. the email you clicked on to get here).
2. Drag this email to the “primary” tab of your inbox
