Dear BlogDash Member,
If you created a blogger account, a business account or subscribed to our newsletter in BlogDash platform, you will receive notifications about paid business opportunities from us, from our clients that are using our platform and tips about how to grow your business.
But if our emails aren’t getting through to you, you will miss these important offers and tips and you won’t receive the full benefit of being a BlogDash Community Member.
Although those days of spam truckloads were gone and now laws in many countries try to protect people’s privacy, there are still many webs and companies that send tones of unwanted Emails.
Furthermore, Emails platforms and Internet Service Providers (ISP’s) have become more intelligent, detecting and filtering what they consider as spam, based on some words or verbs that trigger their alarm systems. They also directly block known blacklists considered as spam… But those systems do not always succeed. Just as many spam goes through the filter, wanted emails are blocked
The problem is that this filter can be too meticulous so, if you really want to receive Emails from a web you subscribed to, is it possible that they go to spam directly.
To make sure nothing from BlogDash slips through the cracks, please read this article and follow the instructions below.
Add the BlogDash and Ana Maria De La Cruz addresses to your email white list. A whitelist is a list in which you include all Email addresses you want to receive in order to prevent they are blocked.
We do our best to protect you from spam following the best practices, but ISP’s and platforms are not enough intelligent yet. In addition, they rely on many people decisions: To block or not to block.
There are many improvements to implement. Meanwhile all you have to do is whitelist our Emails to keep connected with us.
Since every platform works different, here you have instructions for whitelisting the mails you want to receive:
- Locate in your inbox an email from BlogDash and/or Ana Maria De La Cruz (it could be the welcome email you received when you registered.)
- Drag this email to the “primary” tab of your inbox (top left corner with an inbox icon).
- The Emails you dragged will be now whitelisted.
- Yahoo displays a “+” symbol next to “From” that is, the sender’s name. Select sender and when “+” is clicked a pop-up is displayed. You just have to select “Save”.
Outlook (options can be showed differently depending on the Outlook version):
- Look at your inbox and right click on the message.
- Select “Junk E-mail” from the menu.
- Click “Add Sender to Safe Senders List.”
- Select “Mail” and “Preferences” from the top menu.
- Then you should see the preferences window. Click “Rules” icon.
- Now click “Add rule” and type a name for your rule in the “Description” field.
- Use the following settings: “If any of the following conditions are met: From Contains.” Then, all you have to do is type the sender’s address in text field, beside “Contains”.
- Finally select “Move Message” and “Inbox” from the drop-down menus and click “Ok” to save the rule.
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. (Forward the answer to us, and we might add it!) 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.
In another hand, if you are a blogger and created a blogger account, please don’t forget to fill out the pitch policy and select the category that best matches with your blog content. If you are not getting enough blogging opportunities from our system, please read the post: Why am I not getting enough pitches on BlogDash? It explains the different reasons why you may not get our blogging paid opportunities.
If you have any question, we’re here to listen, please Contact Us. Thank you for being part of BlogDash Community. Keep in touch!
