Ask them if they can whitelist Carolina Friends. They’ll probably ask you for some information about us.

Here’s what to tell them:

  • Sending Address:  mail@carolinafriends.com
  • Domain:   carolinafriends.com

Above all, the most important (and simple!) thing you can do is to add the above domain and sending address to your email’s address book!
