I am pumped to have you onboard, taking part in our 12-Part FE Exam Roadmap, you are going to love it.
Your first lesson will be in your inbox shortly.
Now there are two things we need to do to get this party started right…
THING 1: Let me know…
In the lower corner you will see a live chat message where I ask you a specific question that is super important for us moving forward…check it out.
THING 2: How To Make Sure You Get Your Lessons!
So now you are enrolled in our FE Exam Roadmap…now what?
Let’s make sure you receive the lessons, because if not, what’s the point! 🙂
To do this, we need to make sure my email is whitelisted.
This is a quick, one-time-only task to ensure that you are getting what you need.
Usually, all you need to do is open my first email message and verify that I can be trusted:
But each email client is different, so here are simple instructions on how to ensure that future emails get delivered straight to the inbox.
Click on your email client:
- Apple Mail (OS X and iOS devices)
- Outlook 20XX
- Yahoo! Mail
- Gmail (Webmail and mobile)
- Android (Default client)
- Windows Live Desktop
- AOL Mail
Apple Mail (OS X and iOS devices)
Both Apple Mail on OSX and Mail on iOS devices have a similar process for adding senders to Contacts.
By selecting the From, or Reply-to on an email message, you can choose to “Add to Contacts” or “Add to VIPs”.
The advantage of “Add to VIPs” is that future emails from me will be added to a special VIP mailbox in your iOS Mail so you are sure not to miss out on FREE trainings and workshops.
When opening an email from me, an alert at the header of the message, “Click here to download pictures…” should display.
Click this and select, “Add Sender to Safe Senders list”:
After opening my email message, an alert message should display with, “Parts of this message have been blocked for your safety”.
Beneath this, click the link with, “I trust [email protected] Always show content”:
When opening my email message, a “+” symbol should display next to From: and the my name.
Select this and an “Add to contacts” pop-up should appear.
Gmail (webmail and mobile)
Getting all future emails from me to appear in the “Primary” tab (instead of “Promotions”, or elsewhere) is a quick, two-step process.
First of all, drag-and-drop the email message from beneath the tab it’s currently filed under, to the “Primary” tab:
Once done, a message alert will appear with, “This conversation has been moved to Primary. Do this for all future messages from [email protected]?” Select “Yes”:
Gmail on mobile devices doesn’t provide a way to prioritize messages.
However, touching “Show images” then “Always show images from Sender” will ensure that images always display in the inbox:
Android (Default client)
On Android devices, open my email message and touch the picture of me that displays before the message.
Tap “Add to Contacts”.
Windows Live Desktop
After opening my email message in Windows Live Desktop, an alert in the preview pane with, “Some images in this message are not shown.” will display.
Select the link, “Add to Safe Senders list”:
In the preview pane for my opened email message in AOL Mail, select my From name under the email’s subject line and select “Add Contact” from the drop-down menu:
Wrapping it up…
And that’s that.
Hopefully I’ve got you dialed in on whitelisting my contact so you see everything coming your way moving forward.
If you are hesitant to whitelist, you may still be good to go, but spam filters can still grab my email before it reaches your inbox without you seeing it…sometimes, things just happen.
And when the only constant regarding email algorithms is how frequently they change, you never know when we’ll suddenly see a shift in an otherwise smooth experience and wind up missing out on important contact.
But as far as I am concerned, as long as we are following through on ensuring my email is whitelisted as a *verified sender*, then we will transcend all these worries. Regardless of any unexpected updates from Gmail or Apple mail—or any other clients that might emerge in the future—you can rest easy knowing you are getting your lessons and announcements landing in the right place.
