White-list Us in Your Junk Mail Filter
Not to state the obvious but sometimes email delivery problems can be caused by the simplest mistakes.
1. Please check your email address shown in ‘My Account’ page to check it is correct and up to date.
2. Then check your spam folder.
3. Also with the rising tide of junk mail on the internet, mail providers and business filters are becoming ever more zealous in blocking suspected spammers. We always recommend that you use a personal email address for newsletter delivery as explaining to your boss and IT department that they need to take some time out to approve your personal email communications can be embarrassing.
Barrytyler.com sends a lot of mail to keep our members informed, but we cannot enjoy the same special relationships with mail providers as the Fortune 500. So unfortunately, the sheer volume of mail we send sometimes causes us to be miscategorised as spam.
If you are experiencing these issues receiving the newsletter, you can white-list us. This tells your provider (or junk filter) that our emails are expected and legitimate. This is usually as simple as adding email@example.com to your address book.
Below are white-listing instructions for most providers:
Open your Yahoo! mailbox.
Click Mail Options.
Click Add Filter.
In the top row, labeled ‘From header:’ make sure Contains is selected in the pull-down menu.
Click in the text box next to that pull-down menu, then enter the address: firstname.lastname@example.org
At the bottom, where it says “Move the Message To:” select Inbox from the pull-down menu.
Click the Add Filter button again.
If Inner Circle Newsletter has been filtered to your “bulk” folder, simply open the message and click on the “This is not Spam” link next to the “From” field.
Windows Live Hotmail:
