Email providers put tools in place to help you block unwanted emails, better known as "spam". But, sometimes these programs block email you actually want. We want to make sure you receive Tred emails so that you don't miss any important notifications related to transacting your car. To ensure you are receiving TRED emails, please do the following:
Be sure to add the corresponding TRED email addresses to your email white-list to ensure the best chance of receiving these updates. A white-list is basically a list of accepted emails or domains that will be allowed to be received.
Why is this important?
Unsolicited, unwanted advertising e-mail, commonly known as “spam”, has become a big problem. It’s reached such proportions that most e-mail services and Internet Service Providers (ISPs) have put some sort of blocking or filtering system in place or begun relying on self-proclaimed blacklists to tell the good guys from the bad.
TRED applauds their intention to protect you from spam, but everyone agrees that the current systems for stopping spam are far from a perfect solution. They often block e-mail that you’ve requested, but that fits somebody’s idea of what spam looks like. Many more responsible anti-spam activists are working hard to cut down on these “false positives”, but in the mean time, you might unexpectedly find you’re not getting our content...
As it happens, there’s something you can do to keep your subscription’s content from falling into the false positive trap. You can fight the blacklists with a “white-list”.
White-list us now, before your delivery is interrupted.
Of course, every e-mail system is different. Below are instructions for some of the more popular ones. If yours isn’t listed here, please contact your ISP’s customer service folks for their instructions. (Forward the answer to us, and we might add it!) If you’re using some sort of spam filtering or blocking software yourself (in addition to what your ISP provides), we’ve also listed instructions on how to exempt your subscription from some of the more popular of those programs.
In your inbox, locate an email from firstname.lastname@example.org (ex. your welcome mail after you signed up to buy or sell on TRED).
2. Drag this email to the “primary” tab of your inbox.
3. You’ll see that our emails will go to your primary folder in the future!
