Not Receiving Important Emails?
Last semester, Bishop O’Dowd High School began using a system called PowerAnnouncement to broadcast important academic e-mail announcements. A few of you recently reported not receiving these e-mails. PowerAnnouncement has informed us that some Internet service providers, including Comcast, Verizon, and Yahoo, are erroneously flagging our e-mail announcements as spam. They are working to resolve the issue, but in the meantime you can ensure that you receive all of O’Dowd’s e-mail announcements by whitelisting the following addresses:
Whitelisting tells your e- system to allow e-mails from designated addresses into your inbox. For more instructions on how to whitelist, go here: Whitelisting Instructions
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Gene Yang at firstname.lastname@example.org.
