Q: Why am I not receiving my WorkplaceInfo emails?
A: Increasingly, IT organisations and Internet Service Providers (ISP) are using filtering systems to try and keep spam out of customers' inboxes. Being automated, these filters are not perfect. Many authentic emails get caught in these filters especially if they are HTML. Sometimes, they accidentally filter important emails you were waiting for and you have no way to know which of your emails is filtered. The end result is, you end up losing critical info that may prove to be vital to your business.
Q: Is there a way to solve the problem?
A: Fortunately for all of us, there exist simple solutions. But the action has to come from you to make sure that these critical communications reach your mailbox - Unblocked.
Q: What can I do to ensure I receive my WorkplaceInfo emails?
A: You can do a number of things depending on what email client you are using and whether your organisation and/or ISP employs a spam filter.
Many popular e-mail programs, including Outlook, Outlook Express, Eudora, and Netscape Mail, don't provide a convenient way for you to white-list the folks you want to receive e-mail from. If you're using this sort of e-mail system and you either aren't getting your newsletters or want to make sure you continue to receive your newsletters in the future, you can do something about it.
Contact your IT department or the customer service representative at your ISP. Explain to them that the newsletter is an e-mail that you asked for and value. Ask them if they can white-list newsletter . They'll probably ask you for some information about us. Here's what to tell them:
Domain: If they need to know the domain we're mailing from, tell them : @WorkplaceInfo.com.au
IP Address: If they ask for our sending IP address, tell them: 220.127.116.11
Your own filtering software: Look for "Options" in the filter software that you have installed in your computer. Then give permissions for all emails from a particular email address or domain.
Two Additional Tips To Prevent Losing Important Emails
Tip #1: You may be currently receiving all your email messages without a hitch. But, it's still advisable to white-list and prevent future problems.
Tip #2: No matter what the email system you are currently using, add the email address of your newsletter to the 'Address Book' of your particular email system.
Currently, white-listing is the ONLY way to ensure that you receive all your important emails. Do not ignore this important aspect of email communication.
Q: Why can I receive TEXT emails but not HTML emails?
A: It is important to realise when receiving emails in HTML format that a number of issues can prevent you from receiving the email. Two important issues are listed below.
1) Some organisations will not allow any HTML formatted emails through to their intended recipients due to the potential security threat.
2) Some older versions of email clients don’t have the ability to render HTML emails correctly. Their format can be affected or they can just appear as garbled text.
For either of the above issues you should select TEXT as your email format option.

Q. What can I do to speed up the website's loading time?
A. This User Tip is provided as a result of feedback from our recent Subscriber Survey.
A few subscribers have noted that there can be a delay while WorkplaceInfo loads information. It is true that the WorkplaceInfo website now contains a huge volume of information, including some years of archival information. It also has a more detailed menu system.
On some older computers with less memory, the size of a website can affect the loading speed. However, many other factors can also affect loading speed: your internet connection speed; visiting the website for the first time; your computer network speed, etc. Speak to your IT department to troubleshoot any issues in your particular environment.
Q. Format of daily emails
Some subscribers have asked us about how to ensure their WorkplaceInfo daily emails can be viewed in the correct format in which they were sent to them. Lotus Notes users in particular may have had some trouble viewing WorkplaceInfo emails.
If you are experiencing difficulties when you view your email, you should follow the “click here to view email” at the top of the email and this will allow you to view the email in your web browser.
