Mailing list messages going to “Junk Mail”?

If you find that messages from the Linlithgow Ramblers’ mailing list are being routed to a “junk mail” or “spam” folder, there are steps you can take to ensure that they arrive in your INBOX. The procedure depends on which email service provider you use. Instructions for some of the most common providers are listed here.

In your browser go to www.bt.com/btmail

Add the email domain you want to mark as safe, i.e.: linlithgowramblers.org.uk
and click Save
