Can You Do Me A Simple Favor?

Kim AskKim Profile PicPretty Please?

Kim here…

I need a big favor!

Would you please be so kind as to look in your spam folder of your email account and find the emails I have sent you and mark them as not-spam?

An unexpected change of some techy stuff (IP addresses) this week suddenly caused my email deliverability to go crashing into the floor.

Each email that you mark as “not spam” sends a feedback signal to your email provider that tells them that something was marked wrong. So for each possible piece you can mark as “not spam” (if it’s already in your spam bin) you can help me get out of email purgatory!

While you’re in there, identify mail from other friends of yours and also mark “not spam” on those to help them out too!

Be on the lookout for my other post which will talk more about how the magical TINS and TIS acronyms affect your email deliverability!

Good point Kim.

I always look at my spam folder for good emails and I will make them not-spam.

Good news Kim, checked the SPAM folder and I didn’t any emails from you there. I even did a search for your name, and everything is either in the inbox or in a folder :-)

HI Kim, I did go and look in my spam folder and I didn’t find any e-mails in there from you. I actually never even look in there nor did I know the importance of clicking not spam.. You newsletter is one e-mail I always open.. Thanks for all you do Chery :)


Patricia Gozlan March 13, 2013 at 3:08 pm

I have found several mails in spam but these last 2 weeks I have not found any of ours Kim.
Hope this problem has been solved for you as I always mark it as non spam.


Lynn Jones March 13, 2013 at 9:43 pm

Kim, It all looks good. I quickly scan my spam feed and would notice if your emails fell there. And like Jose, I would mark it as non-spam and it would be solved.
Thanks for the head up on this matter!

Oh I guess it is a post for your subscribers. Hope they help you out of the spam messages soon. However, these spam mails have increased in number nowadays and the mail services also seem to act funny these days. They send mails to spam, which are important and keep mails in the inbox that are of no use.

Aloha Kim,

I just found 3 emails from you in my Spam, so I un-Spammed them! :) Hope that helps!

Thanks for always providing such valuable information!

Kellie :)

I also checked in my spam folder. Not a one of your emails Kim has been directed there. But, I will keep checking.


Dena-Lynn March 16, 2013 at 11:11 pm

Hi Kim, you’re not in my spam folder but I was surprised to see so many emails that are not spam in there. I marked those as not spam as suggested. I’m off to read your next post because this is definitely something I don’t understand. Thanks Kim!

Hi Kim, you are not the only one I know who’s going through the same problem.


Shasta Benevides April 13, 2013 at 1:23 pm

Interesting topic. I never actually knew by marking email as “not spam” it would send some type of notification back to my email provider. I use GMail and I know Google, for the most part, tries to stay on top of stuff like this (filtering out SPAM).

With so much email in both my inbox and my SPAM folder, it’s tough for me to actually go sift through SPAM every day.


Silas O'Malley May 23, 2013 at 8:25 pm

The Google mail platform provides the best spam filter to date that’s why most developers like myself morn the discontinuation of the free Google apps service they offered. As a rule of thumb for those who access the inbox from their smartphones, it is advisable to check the spam folder every second day for those mistakenly thrown in there.

I always check my spam folder for messages!


Harleena Singh May 19, 2014 at 8:25 am

Hi Kim,

No worries at all – I think only those posts go to spam if they are not from our known ones, though I always keep a check and unspam the ones I know. You do it once and it doesn’t happen the next time. Will take care :)

Thanks for sharing. Have a nice week ahead :)

Hi Kim, I noticed that your email was sent to my spam folder about a week ago. I caught it though and marked it as no spam :)

Good luck getting it all figured out.

Just subscribed to your newsletters so will be on the look out. I usually quickly check spam folder ever few days so will be looking just in case. Thanks Kim


scott masse May 19, 2014 at 10:50 pm

I’m with you Kim, it takes a lot to build your list and it is a shame to see good content end up in the spam folder!


Gary Starkman May 20, 2014 at 9:52 am

I always make sure to check my spam just in case something landed there that shouldn’t have.


Sagar May 21, 2014 at 1:54 am

Hi kim

I have got a good news for you that there are no emails from you in my spam . I have checked it clearly and could not found any mail. In the future also if I find any mail from you in my spam I would surely un spam it . I hope that would help you. But for now I have got all your mails in my inbox.

Than you for sharing.


Wyatt Hunter May 21, 2014 at 11:49 am

Hi Kims,

Thanks for sharing information about your mails @spam folder. I checked my spam folder for your mail. I marked them as not spam. Thanks for nice information.

Wyatt Hunter,
Billing Gurus.


Ken Lapp May 21, 2014 at 8:52 pm

I always check my Spam e-mail, and ensure that those I need to receive e-mails from aren’t marked as SPAM. We have all lost contact with people in the past by not simply skimming over the SPAM folder.


marquita herald May 22, 2014 at 6:34 am

Yep, I found you … actually this isn’t the first time I’ve had to dig your messages out of that folder. Fortunately I always check before dumping what’s in there anyway. Thanks for the reminder!

David Ryan May 24, 2014 at 9:43 am

So that explains why I’m not seeing you on my inbox. Just unmarked you as spam.


Sue Bride May 24, 2014 at 12:01 pm

Hi Kim, none of your emails were in spam. Maybe this is because I specified that they should go in my inbox rather than in updates where they were originally?

I should check spam more often as I had won lots of money, free gifts and commission from programs that I haven’t joined.

Willena Flewelling May 26, 2014 at 3:21 pm

None of your emails were in my spam folder, but I also haven’t received any from you since May 20. Have you sent any since then? I’m just wondering if I need to unsubscribe and subscribe again.
