There are "bad" folks on the internet that send "unsolicited commercial e-mail", also known as "spam".
Pretty much all internet e-mail providers use some kind of software program to block unwanted e-mail. Sometimes these programs also block e-mail you want to get.
We want to make sure you receive e-mail that we send you.
Be sure to add our ChocolateTemperingMachines.com email addresses to your email white list to ensure the best chance of receiving our email updates.
A whitelist is a list of accepted items or persons in a set, a list of e-mail addresses or domain names an e-mail blocking program will authorize and allow messages to be received.
Unsolicited, unwanted advertising e-mail (also known as "spam") has become a big problem. It is such a big problem that many e-mail companies and Internet Service Providers have a blocking or filtering system in place to prevent spam. Sometimes they build their own list of e-mail senders they think are "bad" so they can try to filter out the good senders from the bad ones.
Have you ever not gotten an e-mail you were waiting for? You wondered what happened to it, maybe called someone or e-mailed them asking about it. And then you found it in your "spam folder"?
We think it is good that internet companies try to protect us all from spam. But everyone agrees that the current systems for stopping spam e-mail are far from perfect.
Sometimes they block e-mail you actually want, because the software thinks it "looks like" spam. Since there are so many e-mail companies and there are so many different filters, this could happen for many different reasons.
It could be there are too many pictures in the e-mail, and maybe the program expects more words. Or maybe the software thinks certain words (like "chocolate") are used too many times in one e-mail.
The internet companies are working to improve the quality of their filters, but in the mean time you might unexpectedly find that you are not getting e-mail you actually want.
Luckily there is something you can do to keep your subscription's content from being flagged as a false positive. You can fight the blacklists with a "white list".
Every e-mail system is different. Below are instructions for some of the more popular ones.
