Many e-mail and Internet companies are now using programs to block unwanted e-mail, often called spam. Sometimes, however, these programs block emails you actually want to get.
So a whitelist is a list of accepted items, persons, e-mail addresses or domain names from which an e-mail blocking program will allow messages to be received.
Here’s What You Can Do To Make Sure You Receive Our Emails:
Be sure to add the following email address to your email whitelist to ensure the best chance of receiving our content and updates.
Our emails are always sent from the email address “firstname.lastname@example.org” and appear with the name “Danielle at Any Mom Can Keep Tidy.”
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.
While we applaud their intention to protect you from spam, unfortunately, the current systems for stopping spam are far from a perfect solution.
They often block emails you’ve requested, and from time to time, you might unexpectedly find you’re not getting your subscription’s content.
But there’s something you can do to keep your subscription’s content from falling into the false positive trap…
You can fight the blacklists with a “white-list”. So white-list us now, before your delivery is interrupted.
If you’re using some sort of spam filtering or blocking software yourself (in addition to what your ISP provides), we’ve listed instructions on how to exempt your subscription from some of the more popular of those programs.
And of course, every e-mail system is different. Below are instructions for some of the more popular ones.
1. In your inbox, locate an email from Danielle at Any Mom Can Keep Tidy (ex. the welcome email that led you to this page).
2. Drag this email to the “primary” tab of your inbox.
3. You’ll see that our emails will go to your primary folder in the future!
For Yahoo! Mail:
When opening an email message, a “+” symbol should display next to From: and the sender’s name. Select this and an “Add to contacts” pop-up should appear. Select “Save”:
For Microsoft Outlook 2003 & Later:
Right-click on the message in your inbox.
Select “Junk E-mail” from the menu.
Click “Add Sender to Safe Senders List.”
If yours isn’t here, please contact your ISP’s customer service folks for their instructions. (Then forward the answer to us, and we might add it!)
