Thank you for subscribing to Flying Free.
…but know what stinks?
Even though you raised your hand and said, “YES! I want to get your Flying Free emails so I can learn more about what’s going on in my marriage and find hope and healing!”
…there’s someone (I’m not naming names) who doesn’t want you to get my emails.
But it’s not entirely their fault.
See, many e-mail 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.
To make sure you get your Flying Free emails, you need to do the following:
Add my email address ([email protected]) to your email white list to get the best chance of receiving our content and updates.
(A whitelist is 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?
Unsolicited, unwanted advertising e-mail, commonly known as “spam”, has become a big problem. It’s reached such proportions that most e-mail 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.
I applaud 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 e-mail that you’ve requested. The more responsible anti-spam activists are working hard to cut down on these “false positives,” but in the meantime, you might unexpectedly find you’re not getting your subscription’s content…
But there’s something you can do about it…and it only takes 20 seconds.
White-list us now, before your delivery is interrupted.
Of course, every e-mail system is different. Below are instructions for some of the more popular ones.
Here’s a quick one-minute video tutorial to show you how to whitelist my email address in Gmail:
