How To Whitelist Investment U

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 some sort of blocking or filtering system in place or begun relying on self-proclaimed blacklists to tell the good guys from the bad

We applaud their intention to protect you from spam, but everyone agrees that the current systems for stopping spam are far from a perfect solution. They too often block e-mail that you've requested, but that fits somebody's idea of what spam looks like.

The more responsible anti-spam companies and activists are working hard to cut down on these 'false positives', but in the mean time, you might unexpectedly find you're not getting the e-mails you subscribed to...

As it happens, there's something you can do to keep the e-mails you value from falling into the false positive trap. You can fight the blacklists with a 'white-list'. White-list every new subscription right at the start, before your delivery is interrupted.

Of course, every e-mail system is different. Below are instructions for some of the more popular ones, including AOL, Yahoo, Hotmail and Gmail. If yours isn't here, please contact your ISP's customer service department for their instructions.

One thing you can do no matter what e-mail system you're using is add the address in the "From" line of The Investment U e-Letter to your address book. This address is InvestmentU@InvestmentU.com

Many popular e-mail programs, including older versions of Outlook, Outlook Express, Eudora, and Netscape Mail, don't provide a convenient way for you to white-list the folks you want to receive e-mail from. If you're using this sort of e-mail system and you either aren't getting e-mail you value or want to make sure you continue to receive it in the future, you can do something about it.

Contact the customer service people or the postmaster at the company that provides your e-mail or Internet connection (your ISP). Explain to them what subscriptions are e-mail that you asked for (or paid for) and value. Ask them if they can white-list the sender. (Unfortunately, some e-mail systems don't allow white-listing.) If they do white-list, they'll probably ask you for some information about the publisher. Here's what to tell them:

  • Sending Address: If your ISP asks for the "sender" or "from" address, give them the address InvestmentU@InvestmentU.com

  • Domain: If your ISP needs to know the domain Investment U is mailing from, try forwarding them one of our e-mails. The domain is in the "header" of every e-mail. If that doesn't work, you'll have to contact the publisher to ask them what domain they're sending from. There might be more than one, especially if you have multiple subscriptions.

  • IP Address: If your ISP asks for the sending IP address, try forwarding them one of our e-mails. The "originating IP" is in the "header" of every e-mail. If that doesn't work, you'll have to contact us to ask what IP address we're sending from.

Thank you for white-listing us.
