It is my desire to deliver a fresh weekly Newsletter related to all things regarding travel, minus of course, all the hype and want to make sure that my e-mails are making it to your inbox on a consistent basis.
Most e-mail providers have filters that try to keep the e-mails you do not want to receive from getting into you inbox, so they route them to a “spam” folder. The problem is that sometimes the e-mails you DO want to receive get sent there too. By doing something called “whitelisting” you are telling these providers to make sure you send all of my e-mails to your inbox, not your spam folder.
You want to make sure you “white list” my e-mail address( firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com) to make sure you receive all of my latest Insights, Tips, Trips, and Deals related to Vacations and Travel.
Just remember that every e-mail 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. I’ve also listed instructions on how to exempt your subscription from some of the more popular of those programs.
Here is how you can White list my e-mails.
1. In your inbox, locate an e-mail from firstname.lastname@example.org (ex. your welcome e-mail for the video I just sent you yesterday).
2. Drag this e-mail to the “primary” tab of your inbox.
3. You’ll see that my e-mails will go to your primary folder in the future!
When opening an e-mail 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”:
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.”
Select “Move Message” and “Inbox” from the drop-down menus.Click “Ok” to save the rule.
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.”
You should me good to go now! If you have any questions, you know how to get a hold of me.
