Whitelist Instructions: Avoid Emails Going to Junk Folder

 

 

 

Don't miss a single email!

Due to the growing problem of unsolicited and unwanted commercial emails, many web mail services (i.e. Yahoo, Hotmail, etc.) and email applications (i.e. Outlook, Mozilla Thunderbird, etc.) have taken measures to automatically filter bulk emails. Unfortunately, these filters end up blocking many newsletters and legitimate emails in addition to spam. Our notification emails  are not immune, and so these filters may incorrectly block our mailings, preventing them from ever reaching your inbox.

We recommend that you take the simple steps outlined below to help ensure that our mailings actually reach you. Even if you are currently receiving our mailings, we still advise you to follow these recommendations as a way to prevent future problems. We thank you for your time and effort and hope that you will continue to enjoy our newsletters and notices.

Whitelist Instructions

A whitelist is a list of email addresses that you want to receive email from. By adding an address to your whitelist, you are telling the email system not to filter email from that address. Follow the instructions below to add us to your whitelist, to ensure that you receive our mailings after you subscribe.

If your companies maintain own email servers, or outsource to ISP, you need contact your IT support to add our email address to their whitelist
