Whitelisting Instructions

How to Ensure You Receive My eMail

Whitelisting To Get eMail From Scared-Out-of-Your-Wits.com...

Increasingly, ISPs (ex., earthlink.net, comcast.net) and mail services (ex., Hotmail) are using filtering systems to try and keep spam out of customers' inboxes. Sometimes, though, they accidentally filter the e-mail that you do want to receive.

Please do not blame your ISP or mail service. The volume of spam is enormous and the algorithms to figure out what is spam (and what is not) are complicated. So mistakes do happen.

We all have to deal, unfortunately, with the fallout of what spammers do to the Internet.

Naturally, you want to keep spam out. And you want to receive important Scared-Out-of-Your-Wits.com communications -- the Fright Club e-zine and similar e-mail you've requested.

To make sure that Scared-Out-of-Your-Wits.com email is not deleted or filtered into a "junk" or "bulk" folder, please add the @scared-out-of-your-wits.com domain to your list of trusted senders/your address book/contact list (in your e-mail software) and to your ISP/mail service's whitelist.

This should guarantee that you will receive whatever e-mail you need from me.

It's a shame to trouble you like this, but blame it on the spammers. Your ISP or mail service is only trying to protect you. The bottom line is that things have become so complicated in the ever-escalating war between spammers and ISPs/mail services, that you and I are accidentally caught in their cross-fire.

How do you add the Scared-Out-of-Your-Wits domain to the so-called "white list"? That varies from ISP/mail service to service...

ISPs

AOL
att.net
attglobal.net

Various Spam Filter Software

*NOTE: If your ISP does not allow you to whitelist a domain, they are failing to meet your most basic of EXPECTATIONS... to receive e-mail from whomever you want. There are many other, customer-focused, ISPs who would love to have your business.

Sorry for the inconvenience, but these circumstances are beyond my control. All you and I can do is work together with the good ISPs and responsible mail services to shut out the spammers, and let the "good guys" through.

Thanks!

P.S. Naturally, once you have verified that the Scared-Out-of-Your-Wits.com domain is whitelisted, it's too late to receive the actual e-mail -- it has already been deleted by your mail service or filter. So please send me an e-mail via my Contact Me form. Please tell me which e-mail you did not receive. Include...

  • Issue of Fright Club e-zine or e-mail you didn't receive

  • Your first name

  • Your email address that has now whitelisted Scared-Out-of-Your-Wits.com

I'll re-send your e-mail ASAP. If you don't get that e-mail in a timely manner, simply switch to a more customer-focused ISP or mail service who deserves your business.

If you are unable to receive my email, chances are you are not receiving other important email messages too!
