Unsolicited, unwanted advertising email, commonly known as “spam,” has become a big problem. It’s reached such proportions that most email 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 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 too often block email that you’ve requested, but that fits somebody else’s idea of what spam looks like. The more responsible anti-spam companies and activists are working hard to cut down on these “false positives,” but in the mean time, you might unexpectedly find you’re not getting the emails you subscribed to…

As it happens, there’s something you can do to keep the emails you value from falling into the false-positive trap. You can fight the blacklists with a “white list.” Whitelist every new subscription right at the start, before your delivery is interrupted.

One thing you can do no matter what email system you’re using is add the address in the “From” line of the desired e-letter to your address book. This address is Oxford@OxfordClub.com

Of course, every email 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 department for their instructions. If you’re using some sort of spam filtering or blocking software yourself (in addition to what your ISP provides), we’ve also listed instructions on how to exempt your valued emails from some of the more popular of those programs.

To find instructions for your email provider or software, scroll down or use the handy menu to the right.

AOL


For AOL version 9.0: You can ensure valued email is delivered to your Inbox by adding the sending address to your “People I Know” list.

  • Open the latest issue of the desired Oxford Club email.
  • Click the Add Address button (over on the right) to add that sender to your “People I Know” list.

Alternatively, you can simply send an email to Oxford@OxfordClub.com

Even if the email you send doesn’t get through (for whatever reason), the act of sending it does the job of putting the address into your “People I Know” list – and that’s what counts.

If you’re using an earlier version of AOL, you’ll need to set your Mail Controls instead. Here’s how:

  • Go to Keyword Mail Controls.
  • Select the screen name the Oxford Club email is coming to.
  • Click Customize Mail Controls for This Screen Name.

For AOL version 8.0: Select Allow email from all AOL members, email addresses and domains.

  • Click Next until the Save button shows up at the bottom.
  • Click Save.

For AOL version 7.0: In the section for “exclusion and inclusion parameters,” include the domain of the “From” address (OxfordClub.com).

Gmail


If you’re using Google’s Gmail for email, you can ensure Oxford Club emails are delivered where they are supposed to go by following one of these easy steps.The first, and perhaps simplest, way:

  • If you use Gmail’s inbox tabs, be sure all Oxford Club mailings appear under your “Primary” tab.
  • If a mailing ends up under another tab, simply click on the mailing and drag it to the “Primary” tab or right click on the message and choose “Move to tab.” When asked to do this for future mailings, click yes.

gmail whitelist

The second way:

  • Open the latest issue of the email you want to whitelist.
  • To the right of the message’s timestamp, you’ll see a tab with an arrow that points down. Click it.
  • Then click Add Oxford Club to contacts list.

Alternatively, you can just send an email to Oxford@OxfordClub.com and that will add the address to your Contacts list automatically. Even if the email you send doesn’t get through (for whatever reason), the act of sending it does the job of putting the address into your Contacts list – and that’s what counts.

If one of your Oxford Club emails has been filtered into the Spam folder, you can prevent that ever happening again:

  • Click on the Spam link to open your Spam folder.
  • Click on the wrongly filtered email to open it.
  • Click the Not Spam button at the top of the email (right next to “Delete Forever”).

Many popular email programs – including older versions of Outlook, Outlook Express, Eudora and Netscape Mail – don’t provide a convenient way for you to whitelist the folks you want to receive email from. If you’re using this sort of email system and you either aren’t getting email you value or want to make sure you continue to receive it in the future, you can do something about it. Contact the customer service people or the postmaster at the company that provides your email or Internet connection (your ISP). Explain to them what email subscriptions you value that you asked for (or paid for). Ask them if they can whitelist the sender. (Unfortunately, some email systems don’t allow whitelisting.) If they do whitelist, they’ll probably ask you for some information about the publisher. Here’s what to tell them:

  • Sending Address: If your ISP asks for the “Sender” or “From” address, give them the address: Oxford@OxfordClub.com
  • Domain: If your ISP needs to know the domain Oxford Club is mailing from, try forwarding them one of our emails. The domain is in the “Header” of every email. If that doesn’t work, you’ll have to contact the publisher to ask them what domain they’re sending from. There might be more than one, especially if you have multiple subscriptions.

IP Address: If your ISP asks for the sending IP address, try forwarding them one of our emails. The “Originating IP” is in the “Header” of every email. If that doesn’t work, you’ll have to contact us to ask what IP address we’re sending from.
