Add us to your whitelist, here’s how…
Thank you for subscribing to Sam Biddle online
We don’t want you to miss a thing so here is how to keep our emails from getting chucked into the Spam bin. Many e-mail and Internet companies are now using programs to block unwanted e-mail, often called spam. Sometimes, however, these programs block e-mail you want to get, like mine!
To make sure you get all our emails follow these simple instructions;
This is the email address to want to add to your whitelist: firstname.lastname@example.org
So whats a white list?
A whitelist is a list of accepted people or a list of e-mail addresses and domain names which those e-mail blocking programs will allow messages to be received.
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.
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 e-mail 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.
White-list us now, before your delivery is interrupted.
Of course, every e-mail system is different so below are instructions for some of the more popular ones. If yours isn’t here, please contact your ISP’s customer service folks for their instructions, or google the answer.
1. In your inbox, locate an email from email@example.com (example; your welcome email).
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!
