Not Getting Chamber Newsletters?

The most common reason for not seeing chamber newsletters in your email inbox is because they are being filtered as spam/junk by your email server or your own email settings.  Your regular spam settings may be too stringent or you may have inadvertently marked a previous newsletter as spam/junk.  Check your spam or junk email folder to see if the newsletters are landing there.  Try copying the following email address and pasting it to your email address book as a new contact:  no-reply@vrmailer3.com     

Another reason that you may not be seeing the newsletter is that if you are using Gmail, it may be automatically filtered into your promotional items folder.  If you do find it there, you can right click on the email and drag into your regular inbox and confirm that you want future chamber newsletters to land there.

The server that hosts your website and email address may also be blocking the chamber newsletter as part of a global policy.  In this case, it is best to contact your server's technical support and ask that the email address that sends the newsletter, no-reply@vrmailer3.com, be allowed to reach your inbox.

Please contact info@FloydChamber.org if you need further assistance.

Our mission is to support regional businesses with networking opportunities, informative and educational resources, and to serve as an advocate for our members and community.
