Whitelist Us in Your Junk Mail Filter

With the rising tide of junk mail on the internet, mail providers and filters are becoming ever more zealous in blocking suspected spammers. Firms like ours send a lot of mail to keep our customers informed, but we cannot enjoy the same special relationships with mail providers as the Fortune 500. So unfortunately, the sheer of volume of mail we send sometimes causes us to be miscategorised as spam.

If you are experiencing these issues receiving our emails, you can whitelist us. This tells your provider (or junk filter) that our emails are expected and legitimate. This is usually as simple adding messages@BullionVault.com and email@e.BullionVault.com to your address book.

Below are whitelisting instructions for most providers:

Yahoo! Mail

  1. Open your Yahoo! mailbox.
  2. Click Mail Options.
  3. Click Filters.
  4. Click Add Filter.
  5. In the top row, labeled 'From header:' make sure Contains is selected in the pull-down menu.
  6. Click in the text box next to that pull-down menu, then enter the address: messages@BullionVault.com.
  7. At the bottom, where it says "Move the Message To:" select Inbox from the pull-down menu.
  8. Click the Add Filter button again.
  9. Repeat for email@e.BullionVault.com.

If BullionVault has been filtered to your "bulk" folder, simply open the message and click on the "This is not Spam" link next to the "From" field.

Microsoft Outlook (formerly Hotmail):

You can ensure that your newsletter is delivered to your inbox by adding our 'From' address to your safe list. Here's how:

  2. Click 'More email settings'
  3. Click 'Safe and Blocked Senders'.
  4. Select 'Safe Senders'.
  5. Add messages@BullionVault.com and email@e.BullionVault.com to your safe senders and domains.
  6. Return to your inbox.

Alternatively, you can add the newsletter 'From' address to your contacts list:

  2. Click the Reply button (it's in the top right corner).
  3. A new email window opens with the wrong address in the "Send To" box.
