Blocked Email

That annoying advertising E-mail, commonly known as "spam" has become a big problem for all of us. It has reached such proportions that most E-mail services and Internet Service Providers (ISPs) have put at least one stringent blocking or filtering system in place, which all of our E-mail must go through.

The problem is these blocking systems often stop E-mail which you want to receive and read. In fact, you might find you are not receiving any of our E-mail based services such as the MPA montanaflying List, "Email Me My Password" results, etc.

Here are things you can do to insure that you will receive this important information coming.

A tip for everyone using any type of E-mail software...

Add our E-mail address to your Contact List:

Step 1 - Open the program in which you use to read your E-mail.

Step 2 - Add "MPA montanaflying" and its corresponding address montanaflying<at> montanapilots <dot> org to your E-mail address book to give you a better chance at receiving it.

How to Further Guarantee MPA montanaflying E-mail Arrivals

These instructions are relevant to users of AOL, Yahoo, Hotmail, or other E-mail programs such as Outlook, Outlook Express, Eudora, and Netscape Mail.

AOL

If you are using AOL, you can ensure the delivery of MPA E-mails by setting your "Mail Controls."

Step 1 - Go to option "Mail Controls."

Step 2 - Select the screen name we send your newsletters.

Step 3 - Click "Customize Mail Controls for this Screen Name."

Then you will need to check the version of your AOL software...

For AOL version 9.0

Step 4 - Open your latest montanaflying E-mail.

Step 5 - Click the Add Address button (over on the right) to add the montanaflying<at> montanapilots <dot> org to your "People I Know" list.

For AOL version 8.0

Step 4 - Select "Allow E-mail from all AOL members, E-mail addresses and domains."

Step 5 - Click "Next" until the "Save" button shows up at the bottom and then click "Save."

For AOL version 7.0

Step 4 - In the section for "Exclusion and Inclusion Parameters,"

Step 5 - Add and save these domains: "@airbase1.com" and "@montanapilots.org"

YAHOO

To ensure MPA E-mail delivery in your "Yahoo Inbox" and not the "Bulk Mail" folder, you can instruct Yahoo to filter it to your Inbox.

Step 1 - Open your Yahoo mailbox.

Step 2 - Click "Mail Options."

Step 3 - Click "Filters."

Step 4 - Next, click "Add Filter."

Step 5 - In the top row, labeled "From header," make sure "contains" is selected in the pull-down menu.

Step 6 - Click in the text box next to the pull-down menu, then enter the address in the "From" line of your most recent MPA montanaflying List E-mail: montanaflying<at> montanapilots <dot> org.

Step 7 - At the bottom, where it says, "Move the message to," select Inbox from the pull-down menu.

Step 8 - Click the "Add Filter" button again.

HOTMAIL

If you are using Hotmail, you can ensure that MPA E-mails are delivered to your Inbox by adding our "From" address to your "Safe List".

Step 1 - Click the "Options" tab.

Step 2 - Select "Safe List." It is under the heading "Mail Handling."

Step 3 - In the space provided, enter the address in the "From" line of your most recent recent MPA E-mail: montanaflying<at> montanapilots <dot> org.

Step 4 - Click "Add."

Step 5 - Then you will see the address you entered in the "Safe List" box, click "OK."

OTHER PROGRAMS

Many popular e-mail programs, including Outlook, Outlook Express, Eudora, and Netscape Mail, do not provide a convenient way for you to mark easily whom you want to receive e-mail from.

If you are using this sort of E-mail system and you are not receiving MPA PIREP E-mails, you can do something about it.

Step 1 - Contact the customer service people or the Postmaster at the company that provides your e-mail or Internet connection (your ISP).

Step 2 - Explain to them that all E-mails from montanaflying<at> montanapilots <dot> org and @montanapilots.org are e-mails that you asked for and want to receive.

Step 3 - Ask them if they can white-list the newsletters that you get from @airbase1.com or @montanapilots.org. They will probably ask you for some information about us.

Here is what to tell them:

Our Sending Addresses: montanaflying<at> montanapilots <dot> org and
montanaflying-owner <at> montanapilots <dot> org

Our Domains: @airbase1.com and @montanapilots.org
Our IP Address (for both domains): 66.35.54.115 and 66.35.54.116
