Whitelist Emails from Bookkeepers.com

First of all, thank you for subscribing to our newsletter!

We are excited to be a part of your Bookkeeper journey. We will be sharing our best tips and tutorials to help you build and improve your bookkeeping skills.

But before we do that, we want to make sure that you can receive all of our emails.

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).

Bookkeepers.com 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 Bookkeeper Launch

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 Ben from Bookkeepers.com 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!

Here’s how you can whitelist our 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.
