Thank you for joining Value Pharmacists

Many email and Internet companies are now using programs to block unwanted email, or spam. Sometimes, however, these programs block email you want to get.

To Ensure You Are Receiving Your Value Pharmacists Emails Do The Following:
Be sure to add the corresponding Value Pharmacists email addresses (val@valuepharmacists.com and daina@valuepharmacists.com) to your email whitelist to ensure the best chance of receiving our content and updates.

A whitelist is a list of accepted items or persons in a set…. a list of email addresses or domain names from which an email blocking program will allow messages to be received.

Why is this important?

Spam has become a big problem. It’s reached such proportions that most email services and Internet Service Providers (ISPs) have put some sort of blocking or filtering system in place or begun relying on self-proclaimed blacklists to tell the good guys from the bad.

Although we applaud their intention to protect you from spam, many agree that the current systems for stopping spam are far from a perfect solution. They often block email that you’ve requested, but that fits somebody’s idea of what spam looks like. The more responsible anti-spam activists are working hard to cut down on these “false positives”, but in the meantime, you might unexpectedly find you’re not getting your subscription’s content.

As it happens, there’s something you can do to keep your subscription’s content from falling into the false positive trap. You can fight the blacklists with a “white-list”.

White-list us now, before your delivery is interrupted.

Of course, every email 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. (Forward the answer to us, and we might add it!) If you’re using some sort of spam filtering or blocking software yourself (in addition to what your ISP provides), we’ve also listed instructions on how to exempt your subscription from some of the more popular of those programs.

1. In your inbox, locate an email from daina@valuepharmacists.com or val@valuepharmacists.com (ex. the welcome mail you just received).
