How to Make Sure You Always Get My Emails

Email providers often use spam filters that also stop legitimate emails that you actually WANT to get from coming through to you.

To make sure you always receive all the training tips and exercise info I send, follow these instructions for your specific email provider.



  • First, if you find email from me in your Gmail spam folder, select my email and click the "Not Spam" button
  • Next, open an email that you have received from me
  • Click on the little down-pointing-triangle-arrow next to "Reply":
  • Click "Add Nick Nilsson to Contacts list"
  • As well, if you find my emails in your Promotions tab, simply drag and drop one of those emails into your Inbox.
  • After you move a message to the different tab, a message above your Inbox will ask if you want to undo that action or choose to always put messages from that sender in the tab you chose. Choose "always".
  • That will ensure that Gmail puts my email into you Inbox rather than Promotions folder.
