    E-mail requirements:
    To ensure receipt of important TransUnion Direct e-mail communications, add the below e-mail addresses to your address book or the trusted senders list in your e-mail program. Spam filters may route e-mails from new senders to a junk mail or spam folder so you may need to check these folders if you are not receiving TransUnion Direct e-mails.
