Because of the various email platforms that can work with Outlook, it is tricky to tell you how to receive email to your Outlook inbox. We can tell you, however, how to make sure you can see all the emails you receive as they were intended to be seen—with images. If a company is not in your address book or “Safe Sender” list, your HTML images will not display.
To have HTML display correctly, users can:
Change settings:

  • Right click on a non-displaying image in an HTML email
  • Choose “Change automatic download settings” option
  • When the popup comes up, uncheck the first box in the list that says “don’t download pictures or other HTML content automatically”
  • Click “OK”

Add sender to address book:

  • Open the email
  • Right click on the “From Address”
  • Choose “Add to contacts” option

Add domain to safe sender list:

  • Right click on a non-displaying image in an HTML email
  • Choose “Add the domain to the safe sender list” option

For other email service providers: Further instructions can be found here

  • Google: puts us in your promotions folder
  • Hotmail, Outlook, MSN and @Live: instructions to change settings >> click on this link <<
  • AOL: instructions to change settings >> click on this link <<
  • mac Mail, @me & iCloud:

◦ On your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch with iOS 7 or later, open the message in the Junk folder, tap the folder icon at the bottom, then tap Inbox to move the message.
◦ On your Mac, select the message and click the Not Junk button in the Mail toolbar. Or just drag the message to the Inbox in the sidebar.
◦ At iCloud.com, select the message, then click Not Junk in the notification bar at the top of the message window. Or just drag the message to the Inbox in the sidebar.

  • Yahoo: Uses a filer called SpamGuard within the program. It automatically sends a lot of emails to the spam folder by default. Uncheck the box and set the setting to low or medium.

If you have your spam and junk settings set to their highest setting, then chances are you’ll never hear from us as your provider will block it. It’s an unfortunate limitation most FREE email providers have, and affects us peeps who use even a trusted email platform to send to our lists.
Why are you getting this email and possibly not the other? Because it is being sent to you as a stand-alone email from an office email program, and not our mass email sends.
Why do you want to change your setting? Because we all have emails sent to our junk mail that we wished we’d received, right?
It’s good practice to first set your filters on medium and then go up from there.
Thank you from everyone at Team SunnyDawnJohnston.com
