Many e-mail and Internet companies are now using programs to block unwanted e-mail, often called spam. Sometimes, however, these programs block e-mail you want to get.

A whitelistÂ is a list of accepted items or persons in a setâ€¦. a list of e-mail addresses or domain names from which an e-mail blocking program will allow messages to be received.
Why is this important?
Unsolicited, unwanted advertising e-mail, commonly known as â€œspamâ€, has become a big problem. Itâ€™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.
AdoptAShelter applauds their intention to protect you from spam, but everyone agrees that the current systems for stopping spam are far from a perfect solution. They often block e-mail that youâ€™ve requested, but that fits somebodyâ€™s idea of what spam looks like. The more responsible anti-spam activists are working hard to cut down on these â€œfalse positivesâ€, but in the mean time, you might unexpectedly find youâ€™re not getting yourÂ subscriptionâ€™s contentâ€¦
As it happens, thereâ€™s something you can do to keep yourÂ subscriptionâ€™s contentÂ from falling into the false positive trap. You can fight the blacklists with a â€œwhite-listâ€.
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 isnâ€™t here, please contact your ISPâ€™s customer service folks for their instructions. (Forward the answer to us, and we might add it!) If youâ€™re using some sort of spam filtering or blocking software yourself (in addition to what your ISP provides), weâ€™ve also listed instructions on how to exempt your subscription from some of the more popular of those programs.
