You’re Just A Click Away
I’m doing this improve my ability to send you messages.
With email services becoming more strict on their policies I have found it necessary to implement the double opt-in process. This will help us both because you will get the information you’ve requested and I protect my credibility with the email services as well as get rid of the fake email addresses being submitted.
I appreciate you for taking this extra step to receive your report and as a serious business owner I’m sure you will understand.
Below I’ve added some instructions to whitelist my address if you’d like to take that extra step.
How to Whitelist Email from Frank- That One Web Guy!
for AOL, Yahoo, Gmail, Hotmail, Outlook, Thunderbird, Apple Mail, Postini & More
To ensure that the email we send you ends up in your inbox, and isn’t mistakenly sent to the junk folder, please whitelist our email address, which is email@example.com.
Below is information on how to whitelist us with AOL, Yahoo, Gmail, Hotmail, Outlook, Apple Mail, ThunderBird and Postini. Even if your ISP or email program is not listed, with these instructions you should be able to figure out how to whitelist our email address at any ISP or with any email program.
Also, if you find email from firstname.lastname@example.org in your spam or junk folder, please take that opportunity to tell your mail program that it is not spam by hitting the “not spam”, “not junk” or similar button, as that will train your program to whitelist it.
