Thank you for visiting Commonsense Marketing.
Many email and Internet companies are now using programs to block unwanted email, often called spam. Sometimes, however, these programs block email you want to get.
To Ensure You Are Receiving Your Commonsense Marketing Emails, Do The Following:
A whitelist is a list of accepted email addresses or domain names from which an email blocking program will allow messages to be received.
Be sure to add any emails from Commonsense Marketing to your email white list to ensure the best chance of receiving our content and updates.
Why is this important?
Unsolicited, unwanted advertising email, commonly known as “spam”, has become a big problem. It’s reached such proportions that most email 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.
Commonsense Marketing applauds 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 email that you’ve requested, but fits somebody’s idea of what spam looks like. 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 the content you requested.
As it happens, there’s something you can do to keep your subscription’s content from falling into the false positive trap. You can fight the blacklists with a “white-list”.
White-list us now, before your delivery is interrupted.
Of course, every email system is different. Below you’ll find instructions for some of the more popular ones. If yours isn’t here, please contact your ISP’s customer service folks for their instructions. (Forward the answer to us, and we might add it!) If you’re using some sort of spam filtering or blocking software yourself (in addition to what your ISP provides), we’ve also listed instructions on how to exempt your subscription from some of the more popular of those programs.
Hope you have found this guide to whitelisting email helpful!
