EMAIL REPLIES

Please note that sometimes customers have a lot of trouble receiving emails due to the use of anti-spam protection software and firewall programs. This is specifically a problem with AOL, Hotmail and SBC Global email accounts. Although sometimes useful, these programs are causing a tremendous amount of frustration and confusion for both our customers and our Customer Care Staff. We do respond to each and every Order Status Request promptly. If you do not get your email response in your normal email "in-box", please check your "spam" or "bulk email" folders in your email program for our response. If you get your email through a business (or work) computer system, you may also want to make sure that anything from In The Swim is not being blocked by commonly used firewall protection programs such as "Barracuda", "Spam Assassin" and others. You may also want to add customerservice@intheswim.com to your "contact list" or "group list" to ensure that you receive our communications about your order. Please realize that we cannot be responsible for misdirected emails or the failure of anti-spam software that may or may not be installed on the computer or system you use to access your email account.
