Thank you for subscribing to Goats On The Road!
Many e-mail and Internet companies are now using programs to block unwanted e-mail, often called spam or junk. Sometimes, however, these programs block e-mail you want to get (like ours 😀).
To Ensure You Are Receiving Your Goats On the Road Emails, Do The Following:
Be sure to add the Goats On The Road email addresses to your email white list to ensure the best chance of receiving our content, updates and free stuff.
A whitelist is simply a list of accepted people that you don’t mind emailing you…. 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 “spam”, has become a big problem. We all have too much spam in our inbox! We know just how annoying it can be.
It’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.
White-list us now, before your delivery is interrupted and you miss out on something epic!
Of course, every e-mail system is different. Below are instructions for some of the more popular ones. If yours isn’t here, please contact your ISP’s customer service folks for their instructions.
If you’re using some sort of spam filtering or blocking software yourself (in addition to what your ISP provides), we’ve also listed instructions on how to exempt your subscription from some of the more popular of those programs.
Most people (by far) these days use Gmail, so we’ll start with that one and then continue with instructions for many others. You can click the “Jump To” buttons below to go straight to your email providor, or just scroll down and find the one you use so that you can follow the instructions and whitelist us.
1. In your inbox, locate an email from [email protected] / Goats On The Road (ex. the welcome mail you received after signing up).
2. Click, hold, drag and drop this email to the “primary” tab of your inbox.
When opening an email message, a “+” symbol should display next to “From:” and the sender’s name. Click this and an “Add to contacts” pop-up should appear. Select “Save”:
Select “Mail” and “Preferences” from the top menu.
In the “Preferences” window, click the “Rules” icon.
Click the “Add Rule” button.
In the “Rules” window, type a name for your rule in the “Description” field.
Use the following settings: “If any of the following conditions are met: From Contains.”
Type the sender’s email address ([email protected]) in the text field beside “Contains.”
Outlook 2003 & Later
Right-click on the message in your inbox.
Select “Junk E-mail” from the menu.
Click “Add Sender to Safe Senders List.”
That’s it for Outlook. From now on you should see our juicy travel goodies right in your inbox! That wasn’t so hard was it? A bit frustrating that we have to prove ourselves to your Outlook ISP, but that’s just the way it is!
