Never miss Wylie’s Writing Tips

How to whitelist us in your spam filter

Carpet-of-words---C

Hey, we hate spam, too. But one thing we hate worse is missing our favorite communications because our spam filter ate them.

To make sure you never miss out on Wylie’s Writing Tips, use these steps to “whitelist” us based on your spam filter:

  • Go to keyword: Mail Controls.
  • Select the screen name we’re sending your Wylie’s Writing Tips to.
  • Click Customize Mail Controls For This Screen Name.

Return to top

  • Open your latest Wylie’s Writing Tips email.
  • Click the Add Address button (on the right) to add to your “People I Know” list.

Alternatively, you can just send an email to: ann@wyliecomm.com, and that will add us to your “People I Know” list automatically. To do this:

  • Open your latest Wylie’s Writing Tips email.
  • Click the Reply button (it’s in the top right corner). A new email window opens with the wrong address in the “Send To” box.
  • Replace the address in the Send To box with: ann@wyliecomm.com
  • Click Send Now (in the top right corner). Even if the email you send doesn’t get through to us, the act of sending it does the job of putting us into your “People I Know” list.
