First of all, thank you for subscribing!
I’m so grateful to have you around the community. 🙂
So now, letâ€™s talk about email whitelisting.
More and more often these days different email providers are using programs to block unwanted email, often referred to as â€œspamâ€.
Sometimes, however, these programs block email you want to get.
To be sure you receive emails from me, follow these quick tutorialsâ€¦
Make sure you add my email address to your email whitelist to ensure the best chance of seeing my messages.
Whatâ€™s a Whitelist?
A whitelist is essentially a list of people, companies or contacts you want to hear fromâ€”or a list of email addresses or domain names from which an email blocking program will allow messages to be received.
Why is this important?
Unsolicited, unwanted advertising email, commonly known as â€œspamâ€, has become a big problem.
Itâ€™s reached such proportions that most email services and Internet Service Providers (ISPs) have put some sort of blocking or filtering system in placeâ€”regardless of whether or not you want to hear from that person.
Fortunately there is something you can do about it!
You can whitelist!
Now obviously every email service is differentâ€¦
Below are instructions for some of the more popular ones.
If yours isnâ€™t here, please contact your ISPâ€™s customer service team and ask for their instructions.
In your inbox, locate an email from email@example.com â€“ like the welcome email you just received from me!
Drag this email to the â€œprimaryâ€ tab of your inbox.
Youâ€™ll see that my emails will go to your primary folder in the future!
When opening an email message, a â€œ+â€ symbol should display next to From: and the senderâ€™s name.
Select this and an â€œAdd to contactsâ€ pop-up should appear. Select â€œSaveâ€
Select â€œMailâ€ and â€œPreferencesâ€ from the top menu.
In the â€œPreferencesâ€ window, click the â€œRulesâ€ icon.
Click the â€œAdd Ruleâ€ button.
In the â€œRulesâ€ window, type a name for your rule in the â€œDescriptionâ€ field.
Use the following settings: â€œIf any of the following conditions are met: From Contains.â€
Type the senderâ€™s email address in the text field beside â€œContains.â€
Select â€œMove Messageâ€ and â€œInboxâ€ from the drop-down menus.Click â€œOkâ€ to save the rule.
Outlook 2003 & Later
Right-click on the message in your inbox.
Select â€œJunk E-mailâ€ from the menu.
Click â€œAdd Sender to Safe Senders List.â€
Hope this helped! See you in your inbox! 🙂
