Are you getting your Bengies Drive-In Theatre email?

Unsolicited, unwanted advertising e-mail, commonly known as 'spam', has become a big problem. It's reached such proportions that most e-mail services and Internet Service Providers (ISPs) have put some sort of blocking or filtering system in place or begun relying on blacklists to tell the good guys from the bad.

If you suspect that you are not receiving the emails you have requested from the Bengies, you may need to add us to your "whitelist" or "approved senders list."

The first thing you should do no matter what e-mail system you're using is add the addresses:
"TheVoice@Bengies.com" and "thevoice-request@bengies.com"
to your address book.

Please look at the following tips and adjust your email client to insure that you don't miss your weekly email of "The Voice."

To find instructions for your e-mail provider or software, scroll down or use the menu on the left.

 

AOL
For AOL version 9.0: you can ensure that valued e-mail is delivered to your Inbox by adding the sending address to your "People I Know" list.
  • Open the latest issue of the e-mail you want to whitelist.
  • Click the Add Address button (over on the right) to add that sender to your "People I Know" list.

Alternatively, you can just send an e-mail to the "From" address, and that will add the address to your "People I Know" list automatically.

  • Open the latest issue of the e-mail you want to whitelist.
  • Copy the address in the "From" line.
  • Click the Reply button (it's in the top right corner).
  • A new email window opens with an address pre-filled in the "Send To" box.
  • Replace the address in the Send To box with the one you copied out of the From line.
  • Click Send Now (it's in the top right corner).

Even if the e-mail you send doesn't get through (for whatever reason), the act of sending it does the job of putting the address into your "People I Know" list--and that's what counts.

If you're using an earlier version of AOL, you'll need to set your Mail Controls instead. Here's how:

  • Go to Keyword Mail Controls.
  • Select the screen name the valued e-mail is coming to.
  • Click Customize Mail Controls For This Screen Name.

For AOL version 8.0: Select Allow email from all AOL members, email addresses and domains.

  • Click Next until the Save button shows up at the bottom.
  • Click Save.

For AOL version 7.0: In the section for "exclusion and inclusion parameters", include the domain of the "From" address (the part after the "@" (the at sign).

  • Open your Yahoo mailbox.
  • Click Mail Options.
  • Click Filters.
  • Next, click Add Filter.
  • In the top row, labeled From header:, make sure contains is selected in the pull-down menu.
  • Click in the text box next to that pull-down menu, then enter the address in the "From" line of your most recent e-mail from the sender you want to whitelist.
  • At the bottom, where it says Move the message to:, select Inbox from the pull-down menu.

  • Find the address in the "From" line of the most recent e-mail from the sender you want to whitelist and add it to Personal Contacts in your Outlook Address Book.

gmail
If you're using Google's gmail for e-mail, you can ensure that valued e-mail is delivered to your Inbox by either adding the sending address to your Contacts list or by marking any incorrectly filed e-mail as "Not Spam". Here's how:
  • Open the latest issue of the e-mail you want to whitelist.
  • Click the More Options link. It's on the title line of the e-mail, over on the right, next to the date. (If you see "Hide Options" instead, then you already have the extra options visible and can just skip this step.)
  • When the extra options are visible (just below the subject line), click the Add sender to contacts list link.
Alternatively, you can just send an e-mail to the "From" address, and that will add the address to your Contacts list automatically.
  • Open the latest issue of the e-mail you want to whitelist.

  • A new email window opens with an address pre-filled in the "Send To" box.
  • Click Send Now (it's in the top right corner).

If after adjusting your email client's settings, you still aren't receiving your Bengies emails, please contact the customer service people or the postmaster at the company that provides your e-mail or Internet connection (your ISP). Explain to them what subscriptions are e-mail that you asked for (or paid for) and value. Ask them if they can white-list the sender. (Unfortunately, some e-mail systems don't allow white-listing.) If they do white-list, they'll probably ask you for some information about the publisher. Here's what to tell them:

  • Sending Address: If your ISP asks for the "sender" or "from" address, give them the address in the "From" line of the most recent e-mail from the sender you want to whitelist.
     
  • Domain: If your ISP needs to know the domain the publisher is mailing from, try forwarding them an e-mail from the publisher. The domain is in the "header" of every e-mail. If that doesn't work, you'll have to contact the publisher to ask them what domain they're sending from. There might be more than one, especially if you have multiple subscriptions.
