Email Guidelines & Suggestions

To combat the volume of junk email we receive, we are tightening up the email filters we use to automatically delete junk email. To prevent your email from being inadvertently deleted, please follow the guidelines and suggestions below. If you follow these guidelines and suggestions, your email will not be mistaken as junk email by our automated filters.
Addressing Address your email to either Hal or Karen as shown below. Our email address is NOT case sensitive -- you may use upper case, lower case, or mixed upper and lower case, as in the examples below.
    [email protected]
    [email protected]
If you address your email any other way, it will be deleted before we ever see it. For example, if you address email to [email protected], it will be deleted.
