Thank you for subscribing to Making Greatness and the Parentpreneur Accelerator.
Many organizations, internet and e-mail providers use programs to block unwanted e-mail, called spam. However, sometimes these programs block e-mail you want.
To Ensure You Are Receiving Your Emails From Us, Please Do The Following:
Be sure to add email@example.com (and if possible, all @parentpreneur-accelerator.com and @makinggreatness.com email addresses) to your email whitelist to ensure you receive our content and updates.
A whitelist is a list of accepted e-mail addresses or domain names from which an e-mail blocking program will allow messages to be received.
Why is this important?
“Spam”, has become a big problem. It’s reached such proportions that most e-mail services and Internet Service Providers (ISPs) have put blocking or filtering system in place or begun relying on self-proclaimed blacklists to tell the good from the bad.
Making Greatness applauds their intention to protect you from spam, but the current systems for stopping spam are far from a perfect. They often block e-mail that you’ve requested, but that fits somebody’s idea of what spam looks like. Some anti-spam activists are working to cut down on these “false positives”, but in the meantime, you might unexpectedly find you’re not getting your subscription’s content…
Fortunately, 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 e-mail system is different. Below are instructions for some of the more popular ones. If yours isn’t here, please contact your organization’s IT department or your ISP’s customer service team for their instructions.
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 whitelist using some of the most common programs.
