Some BPLA members now use anti-spam filtering services like Vanquish which require a follow-up confirmation from each new e-mail sender. Systems like these will block all automated communications from the BPLA. If you use a service like Vanquish, please make sure to exempt all messages from bpla.org when setting up your e-mail filters.
