Many e-mail and Internet companies are now using programs to block unwanted e-mail, often called spam. Many times these programs block e-mail you want to get because they are put in the spam folder. Whitelisting and adding emails to your contacts help to ensure better deliverability.

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 massive blocking or filtering systems in place or or rely on blacklists to tell the good guys from the bad.
We applaud curbing spam, after all we get a lot ourselves, but we are hearing from many of our colleagues in the consulting space and our clients that deliverability has become a real issue. When and email that gives you access to a program you’ve requested doesn’t land in your inbox that’s a problem because it is a terrible user experience. Needless to say that everyone is working hard to cut down on these “false positives”, but in the mean time, you might unexpectedly find you’re not getting your subscription’s content… One of the easiest ways to make sure you get what you ask for is to whitelist, add to safe senders, and CLICK on the email so it shows as read.
You can ensure that your content gets to you and fight the blacklists with a “white-list”.
