You MUST check your email for the confirmation – if you don’t find that then when we attempt to notify you if you won, you’ll never see the email!
This has happened before! Don’t let it be you!
Check your spam folder if you don’t see it right away!
Who is giveawayRocket?
giveawayRocket is the service provider for the sweepstakes (giveaway) you just entered. We serve multiple giveaway sponsors so we can’t give you the exact email address here in these generic instructions, but if you follow these tips, you’ll receive the emails going forward.
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.
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.
To Ensure You Are Receiving Giveaway Emails Do The Following:
When you find the email from the giveaway, be sure to add the sender’s email address to your email white list to ensure the best chance of receiving additional emails and notifications of winning.
Why is this important?
Unsolicited, unwanted advertising e-mail, commonly known as “spam,” has become a big problem. It’s reached such proportions that most e-mail services and Internet Service Providers (ISPs) have put blocking or filtering systems in place or begun relying on self-proclaimed blacklists to tell the good guys from the bad.
giveawayRocket applauds their intention to protect you from spam, but everyone agrees that the current systems for stopping spam are far from a perfect solution. They often block e-mail that you’ve requested, but that fits somebody’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 subscription’s content…
As it happens, there’s something you can do to keep your subscription’s content from falling into the false positive trap. You can fight the blacklists with a “white-list”.
White-list now, before you miss a winning notification!
Of course, every e-mail system is different. Below are instructions for some of the more popular ones. If yours isn’t here, please contact your ISP’s customer service folks for their instructions. (Forward the answer to us, and we might add it!) 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 the more popular of those programs.
