Thank you for subscribing to Big Break Theory.
I love writing this blog and it is incredibly exciting for me to have someone sign up to read my posts. Every single sign up means a lot to me! Thank you.
An important reminder to make sure you get my emails!
Although you have signed up, you may not be able to see my emails in your inbox since many email service providers block unwanted emails and sometimes they accidentally block emails you actually signed up to receive. These often end up in your spam folder. When you sign up, you’re asked to confirm that you want to receive my emails. This means that they are not spam or unwanted.
Please do the following to make sure you get my emails in your primary inbox folder and not in the spam folder…
Locate my email in your inbox and add my email address to your email whitelist to ensure the best chance of seeing my messages. That email is aishwarya at bigbreaktheory dot com (replace at with @ and dot with .)
Whitelisting is specifically allowing emails from a certain source, such as Big Break Theory, to be allowed into your email inbox.
Spam filters that come with email clients have both whitelists and blacklists of senders and keywords to look for in emails. If a spam filter keeps a whitelist, mail from the listed email addresses, domains, and/or IP address will always be allowed.
As every email service is different, I have taken the time and provided some examples as what to do below:
I think i have covered all the major ones but if yours isn’t here, please contact your ISP’s customer service team and ask for their instructions and let me know, i’ll add it here.
- In your inbox, locate an email from me and drag that email in to the primary tab.
- My emails will go to your primary folder in the future.
- When opening an email message, a “+” symbol should display next to From: and the sender’s name.

- Select “Move Message” and “Inbox” from the drop-down menus. Click “OK” to save the rule.
