MY COMICS KINGDOM ROYAL EMAIL DELIVERY
Q: I am not receiving my daily email.
A: First, make sure “Receive your Favorite comics via email?” is set to YES in your PROFILE under MY ACCOUNT.
It is possible that your email service is marking your Favorite comics email as spam. The first thing you should do is check your Spam or junk folder to see if the email is in it. Look for messages from firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
If it is there, you can set your email service or program to deliver your Favorite comics emails. Here are some instructions for some of the major email services and programs:
When you find your Favorite comics email in your spam folder, look for the grey bar at the top of the message or scroll all the way to the grey bar at the bottom. There is a button that is labeled “Not Spam.” Click this button and Gmail will move your email to your regular inbox.
You can use the AOL Spam Settings page to make sure your Favorites mail does not get filtered as spam. Click here to read the instructions.
You can unblock your Favorites email address specifically so that it will not be seen as spam. Get instructions here: http://help.yahoo.com/l/us/yahoo/mail/ymail/abuse/abuse-09.html
Look in the “Junk” folder for your Favorites email. Find the yellow warning box at the top of the message and click on “Wait, it’s safe!” Then go back to your inbox where you should find the Favorites email.
Try following these instructions: http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/outlook-help/add-a-name-to-your-safe-senders-or-safe-recipients-list-HP005243357.aspx?CTT=1
If you do not see any of your Favorites emails in your spam box, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will do our best to help you troubleshoot this problem.
Q: I am receiving my email, but there are no pictures in it.
Many email programs automatically block pictures in your email. If this is the case, you can set your email not to do so.
If you do not know how to do this, here are some instructions for some of the major email services and programs:
If the images are not being displayed in Gmail, there should be a green bar at the top of the message that says “Images are not displayed.” Below that is a link that says “display images below.” Clicking on that link will allow you to see the images in that message.
After you click the “display images” link a few times, Gmail should remember that you always want to see images from your Favorites.
Click here to follow the instructions.
Note: If you are getting pictures on AOL but they are looking fuzzy, here is what you can do:
Log On to AOL
Go to Keyword: “Preferences”, then under “Internet Settings” click the “Web Graphics” tab.
Select the radio button marked “Never Compress Graphics” then OK.
Try following the instructions available on this page: http://help.yahoo.com/l/us/yahoo/mail/ymail/abuse/abuse-12.html
Look for a yellow warning box at the top of your email message. Click on “show content” to view images. Then click on “Always show content” to ensure your emails display properly in the future.
