V Shred Email Whitelist Instructions

Since your Email Provider probably uses some type overzealous filtering; We ask that you add us to your trusted list of senders, contacts or address book. All also known as "Whitelisting."

If you do not see an email from Vince in your Inbox, my email may have mistakenly been sent to your spam folder.

Please open your spam folder and if you find an email from Vince open it and mark it as "Not spam"...

Is your email client or spam filter not listed?

If Vince is being filtered, try adding vince@vshred.com to your Address Book or Contact list.

If messages continue to be sent to your junk folder contact your ISP or spam filter application support and ask how to whitelist vince@vshred.com
