What happened to my Daily Kos Recommended emails?

Most people coming to Help Desk about "subscription" issues are asking, "What happened to my Daily Kos Recommended (DKR) emails?" If you’re asking about a site subscription however, please consult this reference, Site Subscription FAQ

Almost always, the delivery of DKR emails is interrupted because they have been marked as spam at their destination. It's something that can happen by accident, by the presence of highly-sensitive spam filters, or by any number of other benign causes. But once our emails have been marked as spam, we here cannot initiate the reinstatement process. Consumer protection legislation rightly prohibits us from doing so when our emails have been marked as spam. Instead, users MUST take a step first before we can follow up.

If you think this is the problem you have, you are welcome to confirm it by creating a Help Desk ticket. You'll likely see there that it is a common concern. But you also might want to proceed directly to the step you will need to take for reinstatement without waiting for confirmation of the spam block.

Our emailing agency, Action Network, has created a self-service link for reinstatement to the Daily Kos Recommended email list. Link They ask for one business day to process your reinstatement request.

While you’re waiting for that day to pass, it would be a good idea for you to check with your email provider to see what you might need to have in place so that the emails are not diverted again. It's possible, for example, that you'll need to set your own email filter explicitly to accept our emails. Our emails come from this address: campaigns AT dailykos DOT com (spelled out here to avoid any filter).
