How to receive better email deliverability from the American Battlefield Trust

Your email providers do the best they can to keep spam out, but sometimes the systems they use mistakenly catch good email along with it. To ensure that you receive emails from the American Battlefield Trust, we ask that you add us to your trusted list of senders, contacts or address book – all also known as "whitelisting."

To ensure that emails from the Trust reach your inbox, you should follow these two steps:

Step 1: Remove American Battlefield Trust Emails from Your Spam or Junk Folder

If you do not see an email from American Battlefield Trust in your Inbox, they may have mistakenly been sent to your Spam folder. Please open your Spam folder and if you find an email from American Battlefield Trust open it and mark it as "Not spam"...

Step 2: Add Our Email to Your “Safe Senders” List

Sometimes, missed emails are being blocked by Internet Service Providers (ISPs) or spam filter applications. It is important that you add info@battlefields.org to your “safe senders” list. 

If American Battlefield Trust is being filtered, try adding info@battlefields.org to your personal address book/contacts or mark the Trust as a safe sender. If messages continue to be sent to your junk folder contact your ISP or spam filter application support and ask how to whitelist our email address – info@battlefields.org

Click on the providers or software you use to see how to make sure you get the mail from us that you have asked for.
