Email Verification

Important!

A verification email has been sent to your inbox.  Please open it now and follow the instructions.  Your requested information will be sent with a download link or the method described to you.

(It is suggested to keep this
window open until you are done)

Be sure to add our domain to your buddy lists so your spam filters do not block us.

(if you have any trouble, read below)

“So what’s all the hassle with this verification process by email?”

Good question.

In today’s Internet world, sites such as ours must operate under a “confirmed opt-in” policy.  And that means that before we can enter you into our system, we have to verify that you are the person who requested information and the owner of the email address that was just entered.

It’s one extra step, I know, but it’s a good way, actually, the best way to prevent abuse.

“What if I don’t get your verification by email?”

Please check your bulk or spam folder as it’s possibly there. It could have been marked as spam by mistake.

If this happens, be sure to mark our email as “not spam,” add our domain to your buddy list, or follow whatever protocol your email provider has for “whitelisting” any particular senders.

“I have checked all the things just mentioned and still can’t find your verification email! What now?!?!”

You should check with your ISP to find out why you’re not receiving our messages.

In the meantime, you can sign up for a free email account with Yahoo at https://mail.yahoo.com

Mail from us will either show up in your inbox, or clearly in your “bulk folder” at which point you can clearly mark us as “not spam.” And that should take care of that.

How To White-List IleIfa.org

SPAM, unsolicited email, has become a huge problem and to help defeat it, most ISPs and email providers have created filters and/or blacklists. Depending on the company, the emails marked as ‘spam’ are either deleted, sent to a junk/bulk folder, or have a notice in the subject line.

However, filters have caused problems by labeling email that you want to receive, as spam. To help with this issue, they created white-lists. Basically, a white-list is just a list of addresses that you always want to receive email from.

To make sure you always receive emails from us, you need to add the addresses IleIfa.org to send email from to your white-list. The addresses we use are:

  • admin@ileifa.org
  • awodele.ifayemi@ileifa.org

Below are instructions on how to white-list us with some of the more popular services/software:

AOL | CleanMyMailbox | Comcast | Cox | Earthlink | Entourage | GMail | Hotmail | MacMail | Mail Washer | Mailblocks | MailShield | MSN | McAfee Spamkiller | Mozilla Thunderbird | Norton AntiSpam | Outlook/Express | Oddpost | Spam Assassin | Spam Butcher | Spam Inspector | Spam Interceptor | Spam Sleuth | Spameater | SpamNet | SpamPal | Verizon | Yahoo! | Others

Many e-mail programs, including older versions of Outlook, Outlook Express, Eudora, and Netscape Mail, don’t provide an easy way for you to whitelist who you want to receive e-mail from. If you’re using this sort of e-mail system and you either aren’t getting our emails or want to make sure you continue to receive them, you can contact your provider to solve the problem.

Contact the customer service department or the Postmaster at the company that provides your email or Internet connection (your ISP). Notify them that you would like to receive our emails and ask if they can whitelist us. (Unfortunately, some e-mail systems don’t allow whitelisting.)

If they do whitelist, they may ask for some information about us. Here’s what to tell them:

Sending Addresses: admin@ileifa.org
Domain: IleIfa.org
