Therefore, in order to ensure timely delivery of all documents to your email, we highly recommend that all subcribers use an email through their ISP or some other paid email account, as we cannot be held responsible for failed email delivery.

However, in order to minimize delays in receipt, we recommended that you use a paid email.
