Your email spam filter is a chump.
Ok, that was a bit strong but at the very least it can be rude to us sometimes. If there is anything more impolite than plucking good vibes out of inbox and plopping them into junk, I ain’t found it.
To be sure you’re getting every tasty drop from our little daily email, just add email@example.com to your contacts list (yeah, he kind of jumpstarted the thing so we let him keep his name on it for now).
You went through the trouble of subscribing to this experiment, no sense in missing out on all the goods, eh? Below are some helpful instructions on how to add The Scout to your contacts, ensuring the sweet, sweet high that comes with a morning email.
We don’t usually ask you to do more than kick back and soak up the good news, but if you could graciously add us to your contacts list we’d love your face off.
