With unsolicited and unwanted email becoming a larger problem, email services have made their spam filters more stringent. Unfortunately, these tougher guidelines for filtering can cause legitimate emails to be mistaken as spam.

To make sure you continue receiving important emails from CAL, we suggest that you follow the instructions below and add us to your whitelist.
A whitelist is a list of email addresses that you want to receive email from. Adding an address to your whitelist ensures that email from that address will not be filtered as spam.

If we haven’t provided instructions for your email client here are some tips:

  • Add the ‘from’ email address (eg: [email protected] and [email protected] ) into your email system’s address book
  • Look in the setting for “filters” or “spam/junk” to add the email above to the whitelist
