White List

White Listing

White listing is the process of authorizing certain email address to send emails and to get around spam filters that are sometimes too vigilant and exclude subscription services to emails and information that you want to receive.

At the time of writing this we send out all of our emails from the mypivots (at) mypivots dot com email address. Please white list this if you want to receive our emails. If possible, we suggest that you white list all emails coming from (at) mypivots.com
