Whitelisting to receive our emails

Many internet service providers have spam filters to give you greater control over the emails you receive and to help you avoid junk email.

Unfortunately, these filters may block emails you wish to receive from us. To avoid this, you will need to add to your email address book and update your anti-spam program whitelist or filters.

An email whitelist is a list of contacts that the user deems are acceptable to receive email from and should not be sent to the trash folder.

Anti-spam programs

Spam filters can contain sender whitelists and blacklists, as well as key words to look for in emails. If a spam filter keeps a whitelist, mail from the email addresses, domains, and/or internet provider addresses listed will always be allowed.

Follow the steps outlined to whitelist us in the more commonly-used email providers. Please note that these instructions may not be exact and you’ll still need to refer to your provider’s manual or help files if necessary.
