How to Ensure you Receive ONEHOPE Emails
IF YOU OR YOUR CUSTOMER DID NOT RECEIVE A ONEHOPE EMAIL:
1. Search for emails from email@example.com
2. For Gmail users, check the “Promotions” tab
- To solve this, “drag” our emails to your Primary Inbox. Now, you will always receive firstname.lastname@example.org emails to your primary inbox.
3. Check the Spam folder
- Why would our email be marked as spam? Spam filtering has become more rigorous, as email providers are simply cracking down on spam. However, the filters aren’t 100% accurate, so sometimes trustworthy emails go to spam too.
- Subscriber engagement plays a huge role in email deliverability. That’s because email providers look at engagement levels and recipient behavior when deciding which emails make it to the inbox. If you or your customers are not opening or engaging with ONEHOPE emails regularly, it may get sent to spam.
- If you find an email from email@example.com in your spam or junk folder, please take that opportunity to tell your email program that it is not spam by hitting the 'not spam', 'not junk' or similar button, as that will train your program to whitelist it.
4. They may have unsubscribed
- We cannot send emails to anyone who unsubscribes from our emails.
TO HAVE THE HIGHEST CHANCE OF RECEIVING ONEHOPE EMAILS:
1. Open and engage with ONEHOPE emails!
2. To ensure that the email we send you ends up in your inbox and isn't mistakenly sent to the spam folder, please whitelist firstname.lastname@example.org. Whitelisting means adding the email address to your contact list, so your email provider knows the email is trustworthy.
