Thanks for subscribing to Desire To TRADE.
Many email and Internet companies are now using programs to block unwanted email, often called spam. Sometimes, however, these programs block email you want to get.
To Ensure You Are Receiving My Emails, Do The Following:
Be sure to add the corresponding Desire To TRADE email addresses to your email white list to ensure the best chance of receiving our content and updates
A whitelist is a list of accepted items or persons in a set…. a list of email addresses or domain names from which an email blocking program will allow messages to be received.
Why is this important?
Unsolicited, unwanted advertising email, 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 totally back their intention to protect you from spam. I hate spam too, but everyone agrees that the current systems for stopping spam are far from a perfect solution. They often block email that you’ve requested, but that fits somebody’s idea of what spam looks like. As it happens, 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 me now, before your delivery is interrupted.
Of course, every email system is different. Below are instructions for some of the more popular ones. If yours isn’t here, please contact your ISP’s customer service folks for their instructions. (Forward me the answer, and I might add it!) 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 exempt your subscription from some of the more popular of those programs.
1. In your inbox, locate an email from firstname.lastname@example.org (ex. your welcome email for the product you just purchased).
2. Drag this email to the “Primary” tab of your inbox.
3. You’ll see that our emails will go to your primary folder in the future!
