Emails from HQ getting blocked

Posted on October 22, 2012 by Lindsey Grant

With just over a week to go before November starts, we are crying salty tears upon learning that many of you are not receiving our email updates! We’re looking into optimizing these sends on our end to ensure that you’ll get all missives sent from NaNoLand.

In the meantime please be sure to set your own spam filter settings to allow email from NaNoWriMo (like and Letters and Light (

And if you do find an email from us in your spam folder, please be sure to indicate that it is not in fact spam. (Many email clients allow you to note when an email is incorrectly filtered.)

Both of the above measures will go a long way toward getting our emails past your spam filter and into your inbox, along with all notifications digests of site updates and NaNoMail messaging. We’ve devoted a forums thread all about this to help you, too.

I have posted the last three emails we’ve sent out here on the site, so you can catch up on news about the site relaunch, my upcoming adventures, and Chris’s hello!

Thanks for your patience and help as we battle this salty-tear-inducing problem,
