Thank you for subscribing to Chocolate Connoisseur.

Many e-mail and Internet companies are now using programs to block unwanted e-mail, often called spam. Sometimes, however, these programs block e-mail you want to get.

To Ensure You Are Receiving Your Chocolate Connoisseur Emails, Simply Do The Following —
Add the two email addresses below to your email whitelist to ensure the best chance of receiving our content and updates:


A whitelist is a list of accepted items or persons in a set…. a list of e-mail addresses or domain names from which an e-mail blocking program will allow messages to be received.

Why is this important?
Unsolicited, unwanted advertising e-mail, commonly known as “spam”, has become a big problem. It’s reached the point that most e-mail services and Internet Service Providers (ISPs) put a blocking or filtering system in place or rely on “blacklists” to tell the good guys from the bad.

It’s a good intention to protect you from spam, but everyone agrees that the current systems for stopping spam are far from perfect. They often block e-mail you’ve actually requested, but that fits someone else’s idea of what spam looks like!  The 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 your requested content from us.

Thankfully there’s an easy step you can take to keep your Chocolate Connoisseur content from falling into the false positive trap: you can add them to a “white-list”.

Whitelist 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, please contact your ISP’s customer service for instructions.  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 those programs as well.

1. In your inbox, locate an email from (ex. your welcome mail for the product you just purchased).

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!
