How To Whitelist Sage & Crow School of Witchcraft

We've all had it happen- we missed an email because it got diverted to the SPAM folder. Spam filters are usually our friends but sometimes they get it wrong. Tougher restrictions means it's possible even emails you want or subscribed to will never be seen because they get flagged as spam. So let's make sure you get all the fabulous, magickal content and tools for your Witchcraft practice that you want from me and my site. Here are ways to ensure you don't miss a single thing!

 

The following instructions are for the major email providers. If you do nothing else please at least add my email address (sageandcrow@gmail.com) to your email's contact list. That will go a long way to letting your email provider know we good and my emails to you are welcome.

I post every month, so if you haven't seen anything from me in at least a month, do a search of your inbox, then your spam folder.
