How to Ensure that You Receive Every Valuable Email from SuccessNet

Unsolicited, unwanted advertising e-mail, 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 blocking and filtering systems to keep these messages out. The systems work . . . but sometimes they work too well, blocking messages that you have elected to receive from reputable senders.

To ensure that you will receive SuccessNet messages, you need to do two quick things:  

Step 1. Check your Bulk/Junk Mail folder and look to see if any of our messages are there. If they are, you need to click on the "Not Spam" or "Mark as Safe" button. This will tell your email provider that you WANT to receive mailings from Success Networks.

Step 2. Add Success Networks to your address book or contact list. This will help assure you receive all our mailings in the future. 

Applicable email addresses to add to your address book or contact list:

  • This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Domain to add to Safe Sender's list:

  • @SuccessNet.org

Many popular e-mail programs, including Outlook, Outlook Express, Eudora and Netscape Mail, don't provide a convenient way for you to safelist the folks you want to receive e-mail from. If you're using this sort of e-mail system and you either aren't getting your Success Networks message or want to make sure you continue to receive your Success Networks in the future, you can do something about it.

Contact the customer service people or the Postmaster at the company that provides your e-mail or Internet connection (your ISP). Explain to them that Success Networks is e-mail that you asked for and value. Ask them if they can safelist Success Networks. They'll probably ask you for some information about us. Here's what to tell them:

  • Email Address: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
  • Domain Name: http://SuccessNet.org 

Add a name to your Safe Senders or Safe Recipients List

You can add either the sender's e-mail address or their domain name to the Safe Senders List.

  1. On the Tools menu, click Options.
  2. On the Preferences tab, under E-mail, click Junk E-mail.
  3. Click the Safe Senders or Safe Recipients tab.
  4. Click Add.
  5. In the Enter an e-mail address or Internet domain name to be added to the list box, enter the name or address you want added, and then click OK.
  6. Repeat steps 4 and 5 for each name or address that you want to add.

Notes

If you want your Contacts to be considered safe senders, select the "Also trust e-mail from my Contacts" check box on the Safe Senders tab. All e-mail addresses in your Contacts folder will then be used by the Junk E-mail Filter to evaluate messages.

If you want people who are not necessarily in your Contacts but are people you correspond with regularly to be considered safe senders, select the Automatically add people I e-mail to the Safe Senders List check box on the Safe Senders tab. By default, the check box is selected. This check box is introduced with Microsoft Office 2003 Service Pack 1. To get Service Pack 1, go to Downloads on Office Online. Under Office Update, click Check for Updates.

If Automatic Picture Download is turned off, messages from or to e-mail addresses or domain names on the Safe Senders and Safe Recipients Lists will be treated as exceptions and the blocked content will be downloaded.

If you have existing lists of safe names and addresses, you can import the information into Microsoft Office Outlook 2003 by saving the list into a text (.txt) file with one entry per line, and then importing the list.

To quickly add a sender, domain name, or mailing list name to the Safe Senders or Safe Recipients Lists, right-click the message you consider safe, and then on the shortcut menu, point to Junk E-mail, and then click Add Sender to Safe Senders List, Add Sender's Domain (@SuccessNet.org) to Safe Senders List, or Add Recipient to Safe Recipients List.

If you are using a Microsoft Exchange Server e-mail account, names and e-mail addresses in the Global Address List (Global Address List: The address book that contains all user, group, and distribution list e-mail addresses in your organization. The administrator creates and maintains this address book. It may also contain public folder e-mail addresses.) are automatically considered safe.

If you are using an Exchange Server e-mail account and working online, you must be using Microsoft Exchange Server 2003 or later. If you do not know what version of Exchange server your e-mail account is using, contact your Exchange administrator.
