White Listing on your Email Provider

What is White Listing?

Faced with increasing spam, email providers have instituted various spam filters. These are getting more and more sophisticated as the spammers figure out ways around them. This means that many of the emails you receive from friends and from KMC forum may not reach you because the spam filters mistake them for spam. Sometimes they are put in a spam folder and you can retrieve them. Sometimes they are deleted outright (depending how the rules are set up.)

To address the problems of SPAM, many Internet Service Providers (ISPs) and email systems now block or filters email that is not from a "safe sender." One way to get around is to declare mail coming from some email addresses as safe and trustworthy. Because senders can fake email addresses (this is called pheasing), this is not fool proof, but it will work about 80% of the time.

How Do I White List KMC Forum (Or add that to my Safe List)?

Below is a list of some popular ISPs with directions on how to add KMC Forum to your known sender list.

Domains to be Safe Listed

Yahoogroups.com

KMC1973@yahoogroups.com

monymeena@yahoo.com

drjosetom@yahoo.com

jacob@icbs.com

The top 2 addresses are the only one dealing with KMC Forum. I have added the bottom 3 so we can communicate with you in case you need help. (If we are also spammed out, we won't be able to communicate with you. (It is, however, optional.))
