That annoying advertising E-mail, commonly known as "spam"
has become a big problem for all of us. It has reached such proportions
that most E-mail services and Internet Service Providers (ISPs)
have put at least one stringent blocking or filtering system in
place, which all of our E-mail must go through.
The problem is these blocking systems often stop E-mail which you
want to receive and read. In fact, you might find you are not receiving
any of our E-mail based services such as the Rocky Mountain Wing CAF communications List, "Email
Me My Password" results, etc.
Here are things you can do to insure that you will receive this
important information coming.
A tip for everyone using any type of E-mail

Step 1 - Open the program in which you use to read your E-mail.
Step 2 - Add "Rocky Mountain Wing communications" and its corresponding
