Housekeeping: Please “Whitelist” the New Sender Email Address for Our Blogs!

Liz’s change in status has prompted us to rethink how we email our blogs to you each morning. At the end of the month, we’re going to change over from our current practice of having our blogs come from the email address of one of our editors. Going forward, all of our blogs will be sent from Our objective is to establish a sender address that won’t need to be changed every time there’s a change on the editorial masthead, which hopefully means that this will be the last time we have to ask you to take the time to whitelist our email addresses.

We know that whitelisting is kind of a pain in the neck, so we’ve put together this whitelisting instruction page to help you and your IT department understand what actions you may need to take in order to ensure there’s no disruption in delivery. We’re going to begin to send blogs from the address over the course of the next several weeks, so please be sure to whitelist the new address at your earliest convenience.  We’re going to do this incrementally across our sites, and we’ll keep you apprised of when we plan to make the change for a specific site.

There are a couple of things that I also want to mention about this change. First, the name of the author of a blog will always appear in the email, so if you want to respond to the author, you can just click on the author’s name and their email address will pop up. Second, isn’t a black hole. If you hit reply, your message will go to a folder that I’ll have access to. I’ll check that every few days and forward your email to the appropriate editor. Finally, thanks for your patience and cooperation.
