BIG LOVE Challenge Email Whitelist Instructions

BIG LOVE Challenge Email Whitelist Instructions

Thank you for signing up to the BigLoveChallenge. Your email providers and client software do the best they can to keep spam out, but sometimes they filter out messages that you want to receive. Because of this, we ask that you add us to your trusted list of senders, contacts or to your address book. This is also known as "Whitelisting."

If you don't see an email from ❤️ BIG LOVE Challenge ❤️ in your Inbox, our email may have mistakenly been sent to your spam folder (Or to some other folder). 

Please open your spam folder and if you find an email from ❤️ BIG LOVE Challenge ❤️,  open it and mark it as "Not spam"... 

If ❤️ BIG LOVE Challenge ❤️ is being filtered, try adding rob@theliferaft.org to your Address Book or Contact list.

The rest of this document contains useful information on how to whitelist messages using a number of common email platforms (Such as Gmail, Yahoo etc). If you're having trouble whitelisting us, then hopefully you can find what you're looking for here.  Please note, Gmail have a number of different options such as Gmail classic and 'inbox' by Gmail. In addition, the Gmail client can be setup to use Gmail tabs. Because of this, it's recommended that you either scroll down or use the 'Quick Navigation' to find the screenshot that looks appropriate for the client you're using.

If messages continue to be sent to your junk folder contact your ISP or spam filter application support and ask how to whitelist rob@theliferaft.org
