PokerStars Email Information

Are you having problems receiving PokerStars emails?

In an effort to fight growing amount of SPAM Email, service and software providers have been implementing new anti-spam filters. Inadvertently, large numbers of legitimate emails are falsely identified as SPAM and not delivered to an INBOX. Instead these false Spam positive emails are either blocked or delivered to SPAM or BULK folders, or automatically deleted. This is why you may not be receiving your important PokerStars transaction details and missing out on exciting news, events and promotions.

To ensure you receive all PokerStars emails please follow instructions below to add PokerStars to the safe list or permitted sender list of the service or software you use.
