How to Whitelist Email Messages from us

Here’s How To Ensure You Receive Alexa Harrelson’s Emails In The Future
Be sure not to miss out on any Daily Motivational Quotes or announcements from me by “whitelisting” (aka approving) Alexa in your email program.

Look below for your email provider and read the information in that paragraph about how to ensure that you get these emails that you requested.

They will be worth it!

Since your ISP probably uses some type of spam filter we ask that you add us to your trusted list of senders, contacts or address book. This is also known as “whitelisting.”

If you do not see an email from Alexa in your inbox, due to the overzealous filtering by ISPs my email may have mistakenly been sent to your spam folder. Please look for it there, open it and mark it as “not spam”…,
