Unsolicited, unwanted advertising email, commonly known as “spam”, has become a big problem. It’s reached such proportions that most e-mail 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.
We at Bet Chat applaud their intention to protect you from spam, but everyone agrees 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 emails every time…
As it happens, there’s something you can do to keep your Bet Chat emails from falling into the false positive trap. You can fight the blacklists with a “white-list”, so white-list us now 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 team for their instructions. (Forward the answer to us, and we’ll add it!)

There are a few ways you can do this:
