How to Make Sure
You Get Our Mail


To stop the ever growing flood of spam (ie. unsolicited e-mail), ISPs (f.i.,, mail services (f.i. Hotmail) and Mail Clients (f.i. Outlook, Eudora) are using filters to try and keep spam out of your inboxes. However, the algorithms to figure out what mail is spam (and what is not) are extremely complex. Because of this, they accidentally filter out e-mail that you do want to receive.

You must keep spam out. I understand that. But because of this I cannot guarantee you’ll actually receive my newsletter or a response on an e-mail you send me. The filter may keep it from you, and I have no way of knowing that you didn't receive it.

What You Can Do About This

To make sure that our mail is not deleted or filtered into a "junk" or "bulk" folder, please add the kidscook domain to your list of trusted senders/your address book/contact list (in your e-mail software) and to your ISP/mail service's whitelist...

This way the filters will know that you want to receive this mail, even though their algorithms consider it to be junk...

Here is how to do it with some of the top email accounts.
