Missing Our Emails?
By Teresa Heitman

Does your email client remove or hide our newsletter content or send the email to the Junk Mail folder?

The following email help was developed to facilitate the permission-based marketing that West Music practices. Because all IT departments are different, and spam filters sometimes filter legitimate email, it is highly recommended that you add the WestMusic.com domain to your Safe Senders list in your email client.

You can add us to your "safe sender" list by following the instructions below. If we can be of more help, please contact us.

What is a Safe Sender?

An email Safe Senders List (sometimes called a White List) is a list of email addresses from people you trust.

A White List is managed by the email program you use, or sometimes from the main email server at your company (you may need to speak to your IT Support to sort server side if you make West Music a "safe sender" but fail to receive our newsletters.)

In addition to following the procedure below, when adding an email address to your address book, you automatically add a sender's email address to your email White List, confirming that you choose to receive their email communication.
