First of all, thank you for subscribing!

I’m so grateful to have you around the community. 🙂

So now, let’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 spam.

Sometimes, however, these programs block email you want to get.

To be sure you receive emails from me, follow these quick tutorials.

Make sure you add my email address to your email whitelist to ensure the best chance of seeing my messages.

What’s a Whitelist?

A whitelist is essentially a list of people, companies or contacts you want to hear from 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 spamÂť has become a big problem.

It’s reached such proportions that most email services and Internet Service Providers (ISPs) have put some sort of blocking or filtering system in place 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 different.

Below are instructions for some of the more popular ones.

If yours isn’t here, please contact your ISP’s customer service team and ask for their instructions.

Gmail:

In your inbox, locate an email from amy@amystarrallen.com,  like the welcome email you just received from me!

Drag this email to the primaryÂť tab of your inbox.

You’ll see that my emails will go to your primary folder in the future!

Yahoo! Mail:

Navigate to “Settings” icon, then click “More Settings” from the Yahoo Mail menu.

Select “Filters” and hit “Add” to enter information about the domain name or sender.

From here, you can enter any string of text you want to whitelist in future emails.

Mac Mail:

Select Mail and Preferences from the top menu.

In the Preferences window, click the RulesÂť icon.

Click the Add Rule button.

In the Rules window, type a name for your rule in the DescriptionÂť field.

Type the sender’s email address in the text field beside Contains.

Select Move Message and Inbox from the drop-down menus.Click Ok to save the rule.
