Steps to keep CTN Newsletter in your Inbox
Last Updated: 2020
We wish these procedures were not necessary. Incidentally, they are. One of the realities on the internet today is unsolicited and unwanted emails. For that reason, email service providers such as (Gmail, Hotmail, Outlook, Yahoo, Mail, etc) have made their spam filters more stringent.
The thing is, the more stringent the spam filters are, the more likely it is even for legitimate emails to be mistaken as spam. Fortunately, there are simple ways to make sure you continue receiving our valuable emails. Incidentally, the required steps must be done at your end.
Adding an address to your whitelist ensures that email from that address will not be filtered as spam. The simplest and fastest way to whitelist us would be to add our email address – newsletter@CirclingTheNews.com – into your address book. The steps needed vary, depending on the email service provider you’re using. We have gathered the procedures for some of the most popular email services below.
If you have any issues with these instructions, please contact us at Newsletter@Circlingthenews.com
