THANK YOU FOR SUBSCRIBING TO MY ACTOR GUIDE.
Many email and internet providers are now using programs to block unwanted email … the dreaded spam. Sometimes though, these programs block emails that you actually want to see.
DO THE FOLLOWING TO MAKE SURE YOU RECEIVE OUR EMAILS:
Be sure to add the corresponding My Actor Guide email addresses to your email whitelist to ensure the best chance of receiving our content and updates. A whitelist is a list of accepted items or persons in a set…. a list of e-mail addresses or domain names from which an e-mail blocking program will allow messages to be received. Our emails are always sent from the email address “myactorguideagmail.com” and appear with the name “My Actor Guide.”
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 (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.
While we applaud their intention to protect you from spam, unfortunately the current systems for stopping spam are far from a perfect solution. They often block e-mail that you’ve requested, but that fits somebody’s idea of what spam looks like. So, from time to time, you might unexpectedly find you’re not getting your subscription’s content.
As it happens, there’s something you can do to keep your subscription’s content from falling into the false positive trap. You can reverse the blacklists with a “white-list”.
White-list us now, before your delivery is interrupted.
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 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.
1. In your inbox, locate an email from My Actor Guide (ex. the welcome email that led you to this page).
2. Drag this email to the “primary” tab of your inbox.
3. You’ll see that our emails will go to your primary folder in the future!
