How do I prevent email from going into a “bulk” or “junk mail” folder?

Email providers like AOL, Yahoo!, Hotmail, and others are constantly changing their methods to classify email. Our system delivers email to all accounts the same way, and the vast majority get it in their main inbox. Some email providers filter messages based on content, subject line, or the “From” address and may put your email into the recipient’s bulk mail folder. We recommend that list recipients add our domains to their ‘Approved Sender’ list, also known as whitelist, if they have their email accounts with one of these email providers.

For email service providers that do not offer such ‘Approved Sender’ lists or whitelists, we recommend requesting the provider to ensure that mail from the domains floatinghomes.org and ft.floatinghomes.org be permitted. Mail claiming to be coming from us can also be verified using
Sender Policy Framework.

***Important: Please be sure to add domain names floatinghomes.org andft.floatinghomes.org to your safe senders list.***
