How to Assure Delivery of Your MarketWave Alerts

Why Should I Do This?

Due to various factors, such as the number of hyperlinks and MLM references typically found in most MarketWave Alerts, many mail servers will flag, divert, or possibly even unconditionally delete, your Alerts. In fact, we have added this page due to the large number of subscribers that have notified us of undelivered Alerts, or Alerts that they found in their Spam folder. By following the very simple and quick steps below you can assure that you will receive all announcements and Alerts sent specifically from MarketWave.

In somes cases, by simply adding our email addresses to your mail software's address book will prevent them from being filtered. However, if you do not follow the steps below it is very likely that you will miss at least some MarketWave Alerts.


What is a White List?
  1. A list of "from" e-mail addresses that a mail server is configured to accept as incoming mail. E-mail filtering that relies entirely on white lists is severely restricted because only messages from addresses on the list are allowed, and all the rest are discarded. Contrast with blacklist.
  2. A list of valid domain names that a mail server is configured to accept. All mail from users with that domain are allowed.
  3. A list of Web sites that are allowed to be accessed. A company can configure its routers and firewalls to allow only certain Web sites to be accessed because they relate to business.

In most cases, just by adding our email addresses to your address book, safe list, white list or contact list will be sufficient.

If our updates are not getting to your inbox, then we suggest checking your spam folder, bulk folder or junk folder.
