Thank you for subscribing to Robin Penney Yoga (that’s me!).
So here’s the gist.
Most email service providers and Internet companies are now using programs to block unwanted e-mail, often called spam. Sometimes, however, these programs block e-mail you actually want to get. Frustrating, right?
To Make Sure You Are Receiving Your Robin Penney Yoga Emails Do This:
Add the corresponding email addresses from me to your email whitelist to make sure you get my emails.
A whitelist is basically just a list of accepted items or persons in a set…. a list of e-mail addresses or domain names from which an e-mail blocking program will allow messages to be received.
Why is this important?
Unwanted ad emails that you don’t want are known as ”spam”. And you probably already get a ton of those. The problem has escalated to the point that most Internet Service Providers have put a blocking or filtering system in place instead of only relying on blacklists to tell the good guys from the bad.
Of course, I seriously applaud their intention to protect you from the bad guys that spam the heck out of your email account. But of course, the current systems are not perfect. They often block emails that you’ve requested, but that’s just the name of the game. While they make updates to their blocking and filtering system, but in the meantime, you might find you’re not getting your subscription content from me (and many other cool businesses).
But… there’s something you can do to keep your subscription’s content from falling into the filtering systems by mistake. You can fight the blacklist with a ”whitelist.”
Whitelist me right away before these juicy emails get blocked.
And since every email system is different, here are some instructions to follow for the most popular ones. But if yours isn’t here, simply contact your service provider and they’ll send you clear instructions.
1. In your inbox, locate an email from [email protected] (ex. the welcome mail that you received when you subscribed).
2. Drag this email to the “primary” tab of your inbox.
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”:
Make sure to also check your spam folder in case our emails are being delivered there and mark them as ”not spam”.
Select “Mail” and “Preferences” from the top menu.
In the “Preferences” window, click the “Rules” icon.
Click the “Add Rule” button.
In the “Rules” window, type a name for your rule in the “Description” field.
Use the following settings: “If any of the following conditions are met: From Contains.”
Type the sender’s email address in the text field beside “Contains.”
