How to Add NonviolentCommunication.com and PuddleDancer Press to Your Safe Senders List
While we applaud the anti-spam industry for limiting the amount of unwanted email we receive, from time to time, some legitimate email is mistaken as unwanted.
Sometimes, this results in our mailings bouncing back, and also with requests for us to respond to challenge/response messages to prevent future filtering. However, due to the size of our list, it’s impossible for us handle the volume of such requests.
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 instructions you can use to add NonviolentCommunication.com and PuddleDancer Press to Your Safe Senders List, depending on the filtering solution you use:
Main Email Providers/Clients
- Cloudmark SpamNet
- McAfee Spamkiller
- SpamEater Pro
- Spam Inspector
- Spam Interceptor
- Spam Sleuth
- Other providers
Note: If you use a challenge/response system to cut down on spam, you will not see a response from us. The volume of mail we handle is so large, we do not respond to email “challenges.” If you wish to receive our newsletter you must manually add *@NonviolentCommunication.com and *@PuddleDancer.com to your Challenge/Response System.
