How to add Story of My Life to your “safe senders” list
To make sure that you receive the e-mail messages you want from Story of My Life, you should add us to your Address Book or your Safe Senders list. Instructions are given below for several commonly used e-mail programs or services.
Some programs/services allow you to add an entire domain to the list of safe senders. This would allow you to receive all emails coming from, for instance, the StoryOfMyLife.com domain i.e. admin (at) storyofmylife (dot) com. Although the instructions here are written for StoryOfMyLife.com, you may wish to add both StoryOfMyLife.com and StoryOfMyLifeFoundation.org to your list of safe senders.

For those programs that do not offer an option to add domains, you will need to add e-mail addresses individually to the list of safe senders. The three most commonly used are admin (at) storyofmylife (dot) com, newsletter (at) storyofmylife (dot) com, and support (at) storyofmylife (dot) com
