Many popular e-mail programs, including Outlook, Outlook Express, Eudora, and Netscape Mail, don't provide a convenient way for you to white-list the folks you want to receive e-mail from. If you're using this sort of e-mail system and you either are not receiving our eFlyers, you can do something about it.
Contact the customer service representatives or the Postmaster at the company that provides your e-mail or Internet connection (your ISP). Explain to them that the CountryGrocer and/or Onlinegrocer eFlyers are e-mails that you value and that you specifically asked for. Ask them if they can white-list. They'll probably ask you for some information about us. Here's what to tell them:
Sending Address: If they ask for our address, give them the address in the "From" line of your most recent eFlyer.
Domain: If they need to know the domain we're mailing from, tell them both of these:
IP Address: If they ask for our sending IP address, tell them both of these:
NOTE: Since your client-side email software is the very end of the line, email may be filtered out before it reaches there. If you don't get email that you are expecting, check with your ISP for help.
And, if all else fails, call or email your ISP/mail service's tech support and specifically ask how you can be sure to receive all email from thecountrygrocer.com and onlinegrocer.ca. Follow their instructions for whitelisting our domain.
We apologize for the inconvenience, but these circumstances are beyond our control. We appreciate your continued support and we look forward to serving you
