What is an allow list?

An allow list (also known as a whitelist) is a list of email addresses or domains that you want to receive emails from. By adding an address or domain to your allow list, you are telling the email system not to filter email from that address or domain. Follow the appropriate instructions below for the email service provider you are using to add us to your allow list and to ensure that you receive our emails.

To ensure our members are receiving all the knowledge and information that come with membership, NADP is providing the following information to share with your IT department to make sure you are able to join video calls, receive newsletters, Dental Interact postings, research requests and webinar notifications.

Following are the services NADP currently uses to send and collect member information that your IT dept needs to whitelist:

Informz: Newsletters and Promotional Emails

Every member company contact in the NADP / CADP database is eligible to receive the NADP / CADP newslettersTo receive these publications and other important information, please ask your IT department to add the domain “Informz.net” and/or IP Addresses:


For questions, please contact support@higherlogic.com.

Dental Interact (mynadp.org) / mycadp.org

Due to the high volume of email generated from our community, some Email Service Providers (ESPs) incorrectly identify the email messages as spam. While we do everything possible to ensure strong deliverability rates, it's sometimes necessary that you add the community email addresses to your "allowlist" (this tells your ESP that we are approved senders, not spam). If you stopped receiving email from the community, this is the first and most critical step to take to ensure our email messages can be delivered to you.

What is an allowlist? It's a list of email addresses and domains that you want to receive emails from. By adding an email address or domain to your allowlist, you're telling the ESP not to filter email from that address or domain.

Use the appropriate set of instructions below to add Higher Logic to your ESP's "allowlist" so you can continue to receive our email messages.

Organization/employer email address

If you use an employer- or organization-based email address (e.g., name@higherlogic.com), ask your IT department or vendor to add the following domain to your organization's allowlist.


Alternatively, they can allowlist by IP address. Higher Logic sends email messages from 12 dedicated IP addresses.

Research Requests

For information requests such as volunteer sign-ups or surveys, NADP uses Question.Pro.com. Please forward the following information to your IT department to ensure your ability to submit data via SurveyMonkey.

If you're having trouble accessing SurveyMonkey or not receiving emails from us, we recommend adding our domains and IP addresses to your allow list (sometimes known as a whitelist).

If you’re experiencing issues with our website (certain pages won’t load or you can’t upload or view files), check to see if your network is behind a firewall. If your firewall blocks access to all traffic except for certain domains or IPs, you’ll need to grant access to all our domains and IPs, not just www.surveymonkey.com.











The asterisk (*) is a wildcard used to account for any subdomains we use. The last item in the list is for Amazon Web Services, which we use to host logos, images, and file uploads added in your survey design.

Not Receiving SurveyMonkey Emails?

Certain filters and firewalls may prevent emails from reaching inboxes. This may be the case if you’re not receiving SurveyMonkey emails or your email invitation messages and commenting or survey notifications aren't being delivered. You or your IT department can add our sender domains and mail IP addresses to your email allow list. If people still aren't receiving your email invitations, ask them to add our domains and IP addresses to their email clients too.

IP Fully Qualified Domain Name e.surveymonkey.com e.surveymonkey.com mta1a1.outbound.surveymonkey.com mta1b1.outbound.surveymonkey.com mta-81-47.sparkpostmail.com mta-81-42.sparkpostmail.com mta-81-55.sparkpostmail.com mta-81-46.sparkpostmail.com mta-81-54.sparkpostmail.com mta-81-62.sparkpostmail.com mta-81-53.sparkpostmail.com mta-81-61.sparkpostmail.com mta-81-43.sparkpostmail.com mta-81-41.sparkpostmail.com mta-81-51.sparkpostmail.com mta-81-52.sparkpostmail.com mta-81-56.sparkpostmail.com mta-81-50.sparkpostmail.com mta-81-49.sparkpostmail.com mta-81-58.sparkpostmail.com mta-88-13.sparkpostmail.com mta-212-105.sparkpostmail.com mta-214-58.sparkpostmail.com mta-218-1.sparkpostmail.com

You do not need to add SPF or DKIM records to your domain when using SurveyMonkey. Your Internet Service Provider and SurveyMonkey validate SPF and DKIM records automatically. Your recipient's server only queries SurveyMonkey's DNS for SPF and DKIM records and not your own.

If you have any questions regarding these instructions, contact jberggren@nadp.org.
