Comment: Make Sure You Get It - Internet Service Providers (ISPs) are combating spam through a variety of filters and blocking software to trap emails before they even reach one's email inbox. The upshot is that many ISPs are incorrectly categorizing legitimate email as undesired and preventing these emails from ever reaching your inbox. If you are experiencing email delivery issues, your ISP may have blocked Immigration Daily delivery. To reduce the chances of this happening to you in the future, please add Immigration Daily (editor@ilw.com) to your email program contact list, mark the email as "not junk" or add it to your "white list"--whichever is applicable. This lets your ISP know that you want the email delivered and reduces the chance of it being blocked. In spite of this, If you do not receive your Immigration Daily issue anytime, please contact the customer service of your ISP to report the problem and let us know of the problem by writing to webmaster@ilw.com.
