Thank you for subscribing to

Most email and Internet business are using software to block unwanted emails. It’s often called spam. Sometimes, however, the spam blockers are faulty and block email you actually want to read.

I don’t send spam, so let’s get to work on having messages from yours truly NOT wind up in the spam folder. You wouldn’t want to miss on all those new free lessons sent your way, right!? 😉

To Ensure You Are Receiving Your Emails Do The Following

  • Add to your email white list to ensure the best chance of receiving the content and updates.

Note that a whitelist is a list of “accepted items” or  contacts. It’s list of emails or domains names that are “safe” from the viewpoint of email blocking programs.

Why is This Important?

Unsolicited, unwanted email ads, known as “spam” messages, is a big problem. It’s reached such proportions that most email 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. trusts that the email services and ISPs do a good job of protecting you from spam.

However, everyone agrees that the current systems for stopping spam are far from a perfect solution. They’ll often sent messages you want straight to the trash! That’s what we call a “false positive”.

So, 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”.
