Whitelist Instructions for ProjectConnections Emails

These days, nearly everyone is running some kind of software or service to filter out unwanted emails. If you're one of the many people using a spam filter of some sort, you might find that ProjectConnections emails don't get through. Sometimes our mailings bounce back with challenge/response messages, or just get swallowed by the receiving mail server, never to be seen again.

We do what we can to keep up with it (which is difficult given the size of our list), but you can guarantee ProjectConnections emails get through by taking a moment to whitelist projectconnections.com. Remember, you can always change your mind and undo it later (though of course we hope you won't want to!). Here are two ways that you can ensure our emails can reach you:

  • If you're using filtering software or a filtering service, add our domain to your safe senders list. For detailed instructions for various services, click here.
  • If you're using a web-email client for your ProjectConnections communication, just add us to your address book.
