I signed up for an e-newsletter but I have not been receiving it. Why?

There could be several reasons why you are not receiving the e-newsletter. We send out a confirmation link after you sign up. This is an anti-spam measure (called double opt-in). If you didn’t click on the link, your account is not activated. To request activation, contact us and let us know. If you did click on the activation link but you are not getting the newsletter, it may be because your ISP or IT department is blocking the newsletter, thinking it is spam. Contact your ISP or IT Department and ask that be put on the “white list.”
