Thank you for subscribing to an Agora Financial publication.

Many e-mail and Internet companies are now using programs to block unwanted e-mail, often called spam. Sometimes, however, these programs block e-mail you want to get.

To Ensure You Are Receiving the Full Benefits of Your Agora Financial Subscription:
Be sure to add the corresponding Agora Financial email addresses to your email white lis.

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.

Why is this important?

Unsolicited, unwanted advertising e-mail, commonly known as “spam”, has become a big problem. 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.

We at Agora Financial applaud their intention to protect you from spam, but everyone agrees that 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. The more responsible anti-spam activists are working hard to cut down on these “false positives”, but in the mean 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 fight 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 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.

To find instructions for your e-mail provider or software, scroll down.

One thing you can do no matter what e-mail system you’re using is add the address in the “From” line of your most recent subscription email to your address book.

ATTENTION: The graphics shown below are using the Daily Reckoning (dr@dailyreckoning) as an example. Simply substitute your subscription’s name and from address where applicable in each example to complete the whitelisting process.

Others

Many popular e-mail programs, including older versions of Outlook, Outlook Express, Eudora, and Netscape Mail, don’t provide a convenient way for you to white-list the folks you want to receive e-mail from. If you’re using this sort of e-mail system and you either aren’t getting your Daily Reckoning or want to make sure you continue to receive your DR in the future, you can do something about it.

Contact the customer service people or the Postmaster at the company that provides your e-mail or Internet connection (your ISP). Explain to them that The Daily Reckoning is e-mail that you asked for and value. Ask them if they can white-list the DR. (Unfortunately, some e-mail systems don’t allow white-listing.) If they do white-list, they’ll probably ask you for some information about us. Here’s what to tell them:

Sending Address: If they ask for our address, give them the address in the “From” line of your most recent Daily Reckoning.

Domain: If they need to know the domain we’re mailing from, tell them both of these:
youreletters.com
prioritymailer.net

IP Address: If they ask for our sending IP address, tell them all of these:

208.250.48.77
65.202.132.10
209.190.244.102

Thank you for white-listing us!
