Add us to your white list or “safe list”

Because of the growing problem of unsolicited and unwanted commercial emails, many web mail services (i.e. Yahoo, Hotmail, etc.) and email applications (i.e. Outlook 2003/2007, Mozilla Thunderbird, etc.) have taken measures to automatically filter emails. This can happen to emails from us. We suggest that you add our addresses to your whitelist or safe list – the list of email addresses you want to receive from.

Here are some instructions for Hotmail and Yahoo. If you use another provider or these don’t work please check with your provider or the web for instructions on whitelisting.

For Hotmail

You may need to add the LDA email address you are using to your Hotmail Safe List:

  1. Open your mailbox and click “Options” (upper right hand corner).
  2. Click the “Junk E-Mail Protection” link (top of page).
  3. Select the “Safe List” link (2nd from bottom).
  4. Copy and paste the LDA email address you are using into the dialog box titled “Type an address or domain”.
  5. Click the “Add” button next to the dialog box.

For Yahoo!

You will need to set up a filter to redirect our mailing into your inbox:

Open your mailbox and click on Mail Options (upper right hand corner).

  1. Select Filters (bottom left corner).
  2. Click the Add link on the Filters page.
  3. Update the “From headerUpdate the “From header:” rule with the following 2 pieces of information: “contains” and ‘’. This essentially allows the mail server to identify our mailing based on the email From address.
  4. Click the Choose Folder pull down menu and select inbox.Add Filter button.
