These days in an effort to stop you from being bombarded with spam email most ISPs block mail from sources they are unsure about. Sounds good you might say. Well, yes for the most part it is but the flip side is that they also end up blocking mail that you actually want too.
For example say you turn up here and want to register an account but your registration email never turns up. Bummer, you cant get access to the site using that address and your forced to wander off empty handed or try a different email address.
or... you could try and white list our email
What is white listing and how to use it
In a nutshell, white listing is a method used to tell your email client or ISP that you are happy to receive and trust email from certain domains and addresses.
At Trance Moon we only ever send out mail from one of two email addresses so as long as you white list these you should be good to go and you will help teach your ISP that mail from is a good thing. This may even help future users avoid being blocked in the first place as we gain more trust with ISPs.
