Why is this important?
Many e-mail and internet service providers have put in aggressive programs and filtering system to block unwanted e-mails (also known as spam).
WPForms applauds their intention to protect all of us from spam, but everyone agrees that the current system is far from perfect.
Often these programs block e-mails that you actually want to get. Here’s how you can help the system prevent “false positives” and join the fight against spam.
Solution: White-list Emails from WPForms
A whitelist is a list of email addresses of people who you want to receive emails from (and the system will never block those).
It’s a way for you tell your email provider that Syed from WPForms is my friend, and I actually want to learn from him.
When you do this, email providers actually use your list to make adjustments to their overall filtering system which in turn helps the entire world!
How to whitelist WPForm emails 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.
Also if you forward us their answer, then we will add it on this page for others.
1. In your inbox, find an email from firstname.lastname@example.org (for example, your welcome email)
2. Drag this email to the “primary” tab of your inbox.
3. Add us to your contacts, so we can be friends.
4. You’ll see that all our emails will go to your primary folder in the future!
