How to WhiteList Email Senders

Are you having trouble receiving emails from the newsletters or senders you subscribe to?

It’s a possibility these emails are inadvertently being sent to your spam or junk email folders without your knowledge.

When you want to stop having these emails stuck in your spam or junk folders, follow these instructions to add senders to your “Safe Senders” list in a variety of email clients:


Outlook

When you have 2003, 2007, and Express without an email address example available in your inbox:

  2. Select “Junk E-mail”
  3. Select “Junk E-mail Options”
  4. Click on the “Safe Sender” tab
  5. Click “Add”
  6. Type in the email address that you want to add to your “Safe Sender” list – for example, at Ledgeview you would type in “@www.ledgeviewpartners.com”
  7. Click OK

AOL

There are many versions of AOL out there, but we are covering WebMail, which you can access via your browser, for the purpose of this post.

Here’s how to add a sender to your whitelist using the application:

  1. Open your WebMail
  2. Click on a Sender’s name or email address
  3. Click “Add to Address Book” in the pop-up window that appears
  4. Click Save

With most of the options listed, you can add additional information about your contact once you click “OK” or “save”.

This all depends on the application and what information you want to store about your senders.

If your email client is not listed above, and you are still having trouble adding someone to your “Safe Senders” list, a quick web search that is something like: “How to add a sender to my Safe Senders list in (email client name)”, should do the trick!
