Email WhiteListing

by Kelly Dowell on January 7, 2016
Find me on:

Thank you for subscribing to Chesterfield's best lawn and landscape company emails!

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 your Dowco emails do the following:

Be sure to add the corresponding Dowco email addresses to your email whitelist to ensure the best chance of receiving our information and updates.

A whitelist is a list of accepted items, persons, etc from a list of email addresses or domain names from which an e-mail 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 email services and internet service providers 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.

Dowco applauds their intention to protect you from spam, but 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.

How do you “whitelist” someone?

Although every email system is different, below are instructions for some of the more popular ones. If yours isn’t here, please contact your internet service providers customer service folks for their instructions (please forward the answer to us and we might add it to our list).

If you’re using some sort of spam filtering or blocking software yourself (in addition to what your internet service provider provides), we’ve also listed instructions on how to exempt your subscription from some of the more popular of those programs.
