How to Make Sure You Get
Our E-Mail?

 

Increasingly, ISPs (ex., earthlink.net, comcast.net) and mail services (ex., Hotmail) are using filtering systems to try and keep spam out of customers' inboxes. Sometimes, though, they accidentally filter the e-mail that you do want to receive.

Please do not blame your ISP or mail service. The volume of spam is enormous and the algorithms to figure out what is spam (and what is not) are complicated. So mistakes do happen

We all have to deal, unfortunately, with the fallout of what spammers do to the Internet.

Naturally, you want to keep spam out. And you want to receive our Baby Shower Planet e-zine and any other e-mail that you request (and we only EVER send e-mail that you request).

To make sure that our mail is not deleted or filtered into a "junk" or "bulk" folder, please add our following domains to your list of trusted senders/your address book/contact list (in your e-mail software) and to your ISP/mail service's whitelist...

  • @coolest-baby-shower-idea.com

This should guarantee that you will receive whatever e-mail you need...

It's a shame to bother you like this, but blame it on the spammers. Your ISP or mail service is only trying to protect you. The bottom line is that things have become so complicated in the ever-escalating war between spammers and ISPs/mail services, that you and we are accidentally caught in their cross-fire.

How do you add coolest-baby-shower-idea.com domains to the so-called "white list"? That varies from ISP/mail service to service...

ISPs * Mail Services Filtering
Providers

*NOTE: If your ISP does not allow you to whitelist a domain, they are failing to meet your most basic of EXPECTATIONS... to receive e-mail from whomever you want. There are many other, customer-focused, ISPs who would love to have your business.

Sorry for the inconvenience, but these circumstances are beyond our control. All you and we can do is work together with the good ISPs and responsible mail services to shut out the spammers, and let the "good guys" through.

Thank You,

Qing the Baby Shower Speaker



Whitelisting AOL

Place the domains in your Address Book. Check AOL help for details, if necessary.

Different versions have different features. For example in version 7.0, go to Keyword Mail Controls -- after you select your screen name and left-click on "Customize Mail Controls For This Screen Name," enter the above domains in the section "exclusion and inclusion parameters."

For AOL version 8.0, select "Allow email from all AOL members, email addresses and domains." Then left-click on "Next" until the Save button shows up at the bottom. Left click on "Save."

Whitelisting ATTGlobal.net

Your Graymail folder contains all possible spam e-mail. The Graymail folder shows up on the Spam Control page only after you activate the "Filter" option. Before you activate that option, there is no Graymail folder.

Whitelisting Bellsouth.com

You must opt-out of MailGuard to receive our e-mail. Once it is received forward it (with full headers) to to have coolest-baby-shower-idea.com whitelisted.

Whitelisting Seanet.com

You are now able to generate a daily Quarantine report, listing all blocked messages for your e-mail address and providing a "One-Click" release function to retrieve an incorrectly blocked message. When releasing a quarantined message from the daily Quarantine report, it is also possible to add the sender's address to a whitelist, ensuring all further e-mail from that sender bypass the spam filter.

Please e-mail to enable or disable the Quarantine report for your email address. Click here to view a sample of the Quarantine report: http://www.seanet.com/help/spam/quarantine.shtml

If you suspect that e-mail is being incorrectly filtered please report it to Seanet as soon as possible. Messages quarantined by the sieve filter system are reviewed for false positive indications of spam.You should email as well if you think that legitimate emails are not reaching you and you wish to recover them.

Whitelisting Other ISP's

Each ISP is a little different, but the idea is the same. ISPs usually provide help or instructions about whitelisting. But...

If you can't find how to add the our domains to a whitelist, call or e-mail your ISP's tech support or [email protected] and specifically ask how you can be sure to receive all e-mail from coolest-baby-shower-idea.com mentioning all the domains listed above.

Whitelisting Hotmail or MSN

Place the above-listed domains on what they call your Safe List. The "Safe List" can be accessed via the "Options" link, situated to the far right of the main menu tabs.

NOTE: Hotmail's "safe list" often does not work.

Whitelisting USA.net

Login to your e-mail account and click on Services in the left-hand Navbar. You can Whitelist there.

To configure your personal white list filters, please follow these steps:

Determine what you would like done to the messages that match one of your filters. This generally fits into two categories, Override or Exclusive.

  • Override allows you to override your spam filters, including system spam filtering, and is handy when you have mail that is occasionally incorrectly marked as spam by the system spam filters.

  • Exclusive allows you to limit the mail you receive to only those messages that match your White List; all other mail messages will either be considered Junk Mail or automatically deleted. If you choose Exclusive, you will need to specify whether to keep the mail as Junk Mail or to delete the mail.

If you choose to delete all mail that does not match your White List, this mail cannot be recovered later.

Whitelisting Yahoo! Mail

If our e-mail is filtered to your 'bulk' folder, open the message and click on the "This is not spam" link next to the "From" field.

You can also create a "filter" at Yahoo that sends your coolest-baby-shower-idea e-mail into your Inbox and not the Junk/Bulk Mail folder. Here's how...

1) Open your Yahoo e-mail. Left-click on "Mail Options" (right side of your screen). In the right hand column, under "Management," left-click on "Filters." And then, left-click on "Add Filter."

2) Call this filter "Baby Shower Planet".

3) See where it says... "if all of the following rules are true ..."? Go to the top row labeled "From header," choose "contains" in the drop-down menu and type in "@coolest-baby-shower-idea.com"

4) At the bottom, choose "Inbox" from the drop-down menu where it says "Move the message to:"

5) Finally, left-click on the "Add Filter" button.

Whitelisting Other Mail Services

Each mail service is a little different, but the idea is the same. If you can't find how to add the coolest-baby-shower-idea.com domains to a whitelist, try adding specific coolest-baby-shower-idea addresses to your address book, or moving the message from the Junk folder to your 'inbox' or forwarding the message to yourself (if you're getting it at all, that is).

If e-mail continues to be filtered out, call or e-mail your mail service tech support or [email protected] and specifically ask how you can be sure to receive all e-mail from coolest-baby-shower-idea.com mentioning all the domains listed on the whitelisting page underneath this one.

Whitelisting Brightmail

Welcome to the interesting, unknown part of the "world of filtering." Filtering providers are companies that provide filtering services for many ISPs and mail services. They work behind the scenes, invisible to you, the end-user of e-mail.

Since they provide the filtering for so many ISPs and mail services, even Hotmail, there is a good chance that they are involved if you are having trouble whitelisting coolest-baby-shower-idea.com domains.

Brightmail is the largest. It provides a way for you to report false-positives and win a digital camera.

and how to win a digital camera.

Whitelisting SpamCop

You will never receive an answer or any useful help from self-proclaimed, vigilante "anti-spam operations" like SpamCop or Blars, even after you "fix" every possible imaginary problem they might be having with you -- it won't happen. They block, but they don't answer "why" (even though there must be a reason, right?). They don't unblock even when you do everything humanly possible, and they don't take responsibility for their actions.

When we mention spam-fighting companies, we are not concerned with these vigilante operations like SpamCop, which can put a company on a blacklist merely due to a few unsubstantiated complaints, then cover their Web sites with disclaimers absolving them of responsibility.

These companies have never been helpful, and their rhetoric always smacks more

Whitelisting Outlook or Eudora

Most e-mail software now has both built-in spam-filtering and whitelisting features. You can also create your own special filters to accept and file incoming e-mail, and to trash other ones. See your software's help menu for information about spam filters, whitelisting, and creating your own filters, so that you can indicate to your software to accept coolest-baby-shower-idea mail.

NOTE: Since your client-side e-mail software is the very end of the line, e-mail may be filtered out before it reaches there. If you don't get e-mail that you are expecting, check other links on the table on the Whitelisting page under this one for more information.

And, if all else fails, call or e-mail your ISP/mail service's tech support and specifically ask how you can be sure to receive all e-mail from coolest-baby-shower-idea (mentioning all the domains listed above). Follow their instructions for whitelisting all of the coolest-baby-shower-idea domains.

Whitelisting Spam Filter Software

If you are using a client-side third-party spam filter (ex., McAfee SpamKiller) to augment your e-mail software, please indicate to that filtering software to accept coolest-baby-shower-idea.com's domains.

Either add the coolest-baby-shower-idea domains (listed on the page underneath this one) to some kind of a white list (or a "good list" or similar name), or click to indicate that mail filtered into a "Junk" folder is not junk -- all systems follow similar patterns, but the names may change. It is usually pretty straightforwad, but you may need to search the software's help for a bit of direction.

NOTE: Since your client-side e-mail software-and-filter is the very end of the line, e-mail may be filtered out before it reaches there. If you don't get e-mail that you are expecting, check other links on the table above for more information.

And, if all else fails, call or e-mail your ISP/mail service's tech support and specifically ask how you can be sure to receive all e-mail from coolest-baby-shower-idea (mentioning all the domains listed above). Follow their instructions for whitelisting all of the coolest-baby-shower-idea domains.
