Whitelisting

Important GSA email not getting through?

SERVER LEVEL WHITELISTING

Many institutions filter email as it comes in to their mail server. If your email is filtered at the server level (before it makes it to your desktop), please send this information to your email administrators to make sure GSA email will make it through.

GSA relies on email as a primary communications tool with our members and friends. We comply with the CanSpam act and do our best not to send more often than necessary. But important GSA messages may sometimes still not get through to the intended recipient. You can help on your end by whitelisting (designating GSA as a safe sender).

Desktop Level Whitelisting

If you have desktop-level spam filtering, please add the geosociety.org domain to your safe-senders list. With the launch of the GSA Connected Community, we recommend adding connectedcommunity.org domain to your safe-senders list as well. Follow the instructions below according to your email client.
