Troubleshooting Email or Download Link Issues

Are you missing an email from me or getting an error when you click a download link? 

In some browsers and in some email software, if you don’t accept the security certificate for the website and you don’t whitelist the email address you’re receiving mail from, it could be rejected by the system or end up in your Spam or Junk Folder. 

Below are some tips and tricks you can try if you don’t receive my email with your free gift, purchase, or download link. Just locate the email software and/or browser that you use and follow the directions. As always, if you didn’t receive my email and you aren’t sure you want to mess with these types of settings, you can always email me directly at: [email protected] and I will be happy to assist you. BUT, if you are a do-it-yourself type and you like fixing things on your own, here are some tips to help you…

It is okay to click “Proceed Anyway” – I PROMISE I am not up to anything malicious. I wouldn’t even know where to start to do anything malicious on the Internet. It is only because of the way my hosting company stores their security certificate as it applies to my website. Kind of a technical glitch involving some long Internet and security lingo that my tech person shared, but long story short is, it is okay to click “Proceed” if you are visiting Now, I can’t vouch for all the other sites out there on the web but as for my site, I know there is nothing malicious on it because I have it scanned and cleaned regularly.
