Ensure that You Don't Miss a Single Issue of TAXI Industry Opportunities.

One vital thing you can do that helps no matter what e-mail system you're using is this: add the address in the "From" line of your most recent TAXI Industry Opportunities message to your address book.

This is the address:

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 blocking and filtering systems to keep these messages out. The systems work... but sometimes they work too well, blocking messages that you have elected to receive from reputable senders.

The format and language in TAXI Industry Opportunities sometimes causes it to be filtered out as spam, even though we never send unsolicited email. In most cases the intended recipient of the email is not notified (and neither are we) that the message did not get through.

But there is something you can do to keep TAXI Industry Opportunities from falling into the false positive trap. The solution is to "white-list" TAXI Industry Opportunities before your delivery is interrupted.

Of course, every e-mail system is different. On the left are instructions for some of the more popular ones. If yours isn't here, please contact your ISP's customer service department for their instructions.





Many popular e-mail programs, including older versions of Outlook, Outlook Express, Eudora, and Netscape Mail, don't provide a convenient way for you to white-list the folks you want to receive e-mail from. If you're using this sort of e-mail system and you either aren't getting your TAXI Industry Opportunities or want to make sure you continue to receive your TAXI Industry Opportunities in the future, you can do something about it.

Contact the customer service people or the Postmaster at the company that provides your e-mail or Internet connection (your ISP). Explain to them your TAXI Industry Opportunities mailing is e-mail that you asked for and value. Ask them if they can white-list the TAXI Industry Opportunities. (Unfortunately, some e-mail systems don't allow white-listing.) If they do white-list, they'll probably ask you for some information about us. Here's what to tell them:

  • Sending Address: If they ask for our address, give them the address in the "From" line of your most recent TAXI Industry Opportunities email.
  • Domain: If they need to know the domain we're mailing from, tell them this:
  • taxi.com
  • IP Address: If they ask for our sending IP address, tell them both of these:
  • 70.158.119.9
    66.70.29.170




If you're using Outlook 2003 for your e-mail, you can make sure your TAXI Industry Opportunities is delivered to your Inbox by letting Outlook know you consider it safe. There are a few ways you can do this:
  • Open any TAXI Industry Opportunities e-mail, then add the sender or the sender's domain to your Safe List.


  • Find the address in the "From" line of your most recent TAXI Industry Opportunities and add it to Personal Contacts in your Outlook Address Book.


  • Open any TAXI Industry Opportunities e-mail, then select Mark as Not Junk.

  • A new email window opens with an address pre-filled in the "Send To" box.
