How To "Whitelist" Orinda Chamber of Commerce in your Spam Filter With the advent of outrageous volumes of unwanted email these days, it's unfortunate that legitimate email publications are not being seen by some of the readers who enjoy those publications. While we applaud the anti-spam industry for removing the plethora of unwanted email from many of our mailboxes, from time to time, some legitimate email publications are mistaken as unwanted. Sometimes, this results in our Orinda Chamber mailings bouncing back, with requests for us to respond to challenge/response messages to prevent future filtering. However, due to the size of our list, it's nearly impossible for us handle the volume of such requests. To that end, please realize that we want our readers to always anticipate and enjoy the valuable information that our Member Alerts and other messages deliver. If you currently use an anti-spam program or service, we ask that you take just a minute or two to add our publication to your "safe" or permitted email sender list. This usually involves simply adding our sending address (From:) to your whitelist, safelist, or list of privileged senders. This is commonly known as "whitelisting" a publication. Please refer to the following whitelisting instructions you can use to whitelist Orinda Chamber of Commerce, depending on the filtering solution you use: Microsoft Outlook Email System Since many use Outlook, we address this system first. Here we are discussing "Outlook" - not Outlook Express (which does not accommodate whitelists). Open your Outlook program. Click on the "Actions" menu in the top menu bar. A drop-down menu should appear with the sub-menu "Junk E-mail" - click on the "Junk E-mail" item. Then click on "Junk E-mail Options" A new window should open with tabs at the top. Click on the tab labeled "Safe Senders" - then click on the "Add" button that will appear In the space provided in the next window - type the following email address: email@example.com Then click "OK" Before exiting the next window - make sure the following two boxes are checked ... "Also trust e-mail for my Contacts" "Automatically add people I e-mail to the Safe Senders List" Finally, "OK" out of the Junk E-mail Options Window.

You should now be able to receive Chamber emails - unless you also have one of the below filtering systems in place in addition to your Outlook Junk E-Mail system.
