How to whitelist the Monitor Daily email

Occasionally email providers mistakenly filter messages to the wrong folders. This webpage is a guide designed to help you receive the Monitor Daily email in your inbox.

First, to ensure that you receive the Monitor Daily emails, we ask that you add us to your trusted list of senders, contacts, or address book – also known as "Whitelisting." Adding newsletters@cssubs.com to your contacts should let your email provider know that you'd like to receive messages from the Monitor.

If you think you should have received a Monitor Daily email but do not see any in your Inbox, the message may have mistakenly been filtered by your email provider to your spam folder.

Please open your spam folder. If you find an email from "Monitor Daily", open it and mark it as "Not spam."

For detailed instructions, click on the provider or software you use to send and recieve email from the buttons below. Clicking the button will bring you to a set of instructions that show how to authorize the Daily emails to arrive in your inbox.

If you follow these steps and messages continue to be sent to your junk folder, please contact your Internet service provider or spam filter application support and ask how to whitelist newsletters@cssubs.com.
