Email Newsletter Deliverability Issues

Have you experienced problems receiving our email newsletters?

If so, it may have been mistakenly filtered out of your inbox. It may be because your IT department or your Internet service provider (ISP) is blocking the email, mistaking it for spam.

To ensure that you receive newsletters, event-related messages and updates, or special offers from OceanFit, please follow the instructions below, or contact your IT department or ISP and ask them to put us on your “whitelist”, “safe” or permitted email sender list.

What is a “Whitelist” or “Safe Senders List”?

Adding our sending domain (oceanfit.com.au) to your list of accepted email senders (often referred to as a “whitelist”, “safe list”, or “list of privileged senders”) will ensure that you receive your newsletter(s) or other OceanFit communications.

How to add ‘oceanfit.com.au’ to your “Safe Senders” or “Whitelist”

There are a number of different spam programs on the market, and email clients or services such as MS Outlook, AOL, Hotmail, Gmail and Yahoo! Mail, each have specific instructions (see below) for adding senders to your whitelist. While we have included instructions for some of the more popular email clients below, About.com maintains a comprehensive set of instructions online: Make sure updates and newsletters you subscribed to make it to your Inbox.

  1. Select Actions | Junk E-mail | Junk E-mail Options… from the menu in Outlook.
  2. Go to the Safe Senders tab.
