How to ensure you always get our newsletter

Everyone hates spam!

Almost every ISP uses filtering methods in an attempt to block spam. Although this is well-intentioned (and badly needed), these filters can also block some of the e-mail you really want.

To make sure that the Parenting With Dignity newsletter is not filtered into your "junk" or "bulk" folder, you should add to your approved senders list.  We will show you how to do this below, but first... if you are having issues with spam, you REALLY need to consider a suggestion...

Everyone hates spam.  Especially me!
I have been using the Internet since 1993.  My email addresses are on every spam list in the universe.  Until I solved my spam problem, I was getting upwards of 1,000 spam emails EVERY day.  Today, I only get the mail I want!

We all get spam, but there are some that your children just shouldn't see.  Much of the trash that pours into our inboxes would make a sailor blush and our children shouldn't be exposed to it.  No amount of legislation is going to solve this problem any time soon - this is something we have to do for ourselves.  Almost all spam is generated by computers, not people and most return addresses are phony.  In most cases, there's nobody to prosecute (or they host offshore).

In our opinion, the only way to receive the mail you want and block the junk is to catch the spam BEFORE it gets to your inbox.  Then ask the sender to prove they are a real person and not a machine.  We use spamarrest and it has changed our life online. 
We highly recommend it.

How to change your mailbox filters

AOL: Add the domain to your address book.

Hotmail/MSN: Add the to your safe list. The safe list can be accessed via the "Options" link to the right of the main menu tabs.

  • Then click on "Custom Filters" and
  • Click "New Filter"
  • Click "Advanced Filter"
  • Add the to the "From Address" selector

Yahoo! Mail: There are two ways to add PWD to your safe senders list.  One, check your 'bulk' folder, open our newsletter and click on the "this is not Spam" link next to the "From" field.  To add our domain for future newsletters, do the following:

  • Click "Mail Options"
  • Click "Filters"
  • Click "Add"
  • Use "From Header" and add ""

Other ISPs: Try adding our domain or our newsletter's "From" address to your address book.

If that isn't possible, try moving the message to your "Inbox" and forwarding the message to yourself. This often is a default approval process. 

As a last resort, call or e-mail your ISP's support department and ask them how you can be certain to  receive e-mail from
