Why is this important?
Many email and internet service providers have put in aggressive programs and filtering system to block unwanted emails (also known as spam). We applaud their intention to protect all of us from spam, but everyone agrees that the current system is far from perfect. Often these programs block emails that you actually want to get. Here’s how you can help the system prevent “false positives” and join the fight against spam.

SOLUTION: White-list Emails from our websites A whitelist is a list of email addresses of people who you want to receive emails from (and the system will never block those). It’s a way for you to tell your email provider that we are your friend, and you actually want to hear from us. When you do this, email providers actually use your list to make adjustments to their overall filtering system which in turn helps the entire world!

Here’s how you can whitelist our emails before your delivery is interrupted
Of course, every email system is different. 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. Also if you forward us their answer, then we will add it on this page for others.
