Avoiding a “Hillary Clinton Problem”
For the second time in six months, I’m working with a client whose AOL email account is intercepting my Edina Realty emails as unwanted spam.
Result: my client has to hunt down my emails in his “junk email” folder — once I tell him to look there!
Like many Realtors, I use multiple email addresses, and could easily switch to a backup.
However, for liability purposes, Edina Realty agents know to run all their professional correspondence thru Edina’s server, using their company email address (Hillary Clinton knows a little about this issue).
When the problem occurred before, my client needed to hire someone to help her tweak her AOL email filter (as I recall, she ended up switching to an entirely new email address on Google).
Fortunately, this time around, there was an easier solution: I dispatched my college freshman (and computer whiz) son — home on break this week — to my client’s house, who resolved the problem in about five minutes.
