Never miss out on Warp News

Nothing is worse than subscribing to fantastic new content, only to miss out on your emails!  On this page, we will show you how to make sure Warp News does not get sent to spam or promotions, so that you never miss a single bit of fact-based optimism!  The process is called whitelisting and here is how to do it.

Why are you not receiving the emails in the first place?

Services like Gmail, Outlook.com and Yahoo! Mail block email to protect you from unwanted or malicious email such as phishing, scams and spam. In this case, they are mistaking email that you want for email that you don’t want.

If ask your email provider to unblock or whitelist an email address, email from that address will be more likely to get through. Here is an explanation of how to do that for Gmail, Outlook.com or Yahoo! Mail.

How to whitelist an email address with Gmail

Sign in to your account at Gmail.com and do the following.

Add the address to your contacts

Add hello@warpinstitute.org to your Gmail Contacts. Google will usually deliver email from addresses that are in your Contacts.

To do this, navigate to Google Contacts, ensure that you are signed in, and click "Create Contact" at the top left of your screen. Fill out First Name as "Warp", Last Name as "News", and email as "hello@warpinstitute.org"

Mark messages as ‘Not spam’

If Gmail has marked emails you wish to whitelist as spam, tell Gmail the emails are not spam.

  1. In Gmail, navigate to the spam folder.
  2. Search for hello@warpinstitute.org
  3. Select all the emails shown.
  4. Click More and then Not spam.

Create a filter for the address

Create a filter to tell Google to whitelist email from a domain.

Click the cog icon in the top-right corner, and then Settings

  1. Click on Filters and then Create a new filter
  2. Enter warpinstitute.org and warpnews.org in the From field
  3. Click Create filter with this search
  4. In the box headed When a message arrives that matches this search select Never send it to spam
  5. Click the Create filter button

Tips:

  • Do not enter email addresses in both the From and To fields as Gmail will only filter in emails that meet both criteria
  • In both the From and To fields, you can enter either a specific email address or an entire domain
  • To enter multiple domains in each field separate them with OR as in “warpnews.org OR warpinstitute.org”
