Add to Address Book

New features for your email inbox can now be set according to your preferences to prevent SPAM. Internet Service Providers such as AOL, Yahoo!, and MSN Hotmail have developed these filters to give you greater control over what appears in your inbox. Unfortunately, these filters can block e-mails you wish to receive from American Lung Association as well, unless you add yourfriends@lung.org to your e-mail address book.

How can I continue to receive American Lung Association e-mails?
