Many email and Internet companies now use programs to block unwanted email – usually called Spam. Some of my favorite stores, websites and bloggers end up in my Spam folder and I just hate that.
Why is this important?
Spam has become a big problem. It is unsolicited, unwanted advertising e-mail. It has become so big that most Internet Service Providers (ISP’s) and e-mail service providers have put up blocks and filtering systems to block it.
As much as we all love the blocks and filters to protect us from spam, those filters don’t know who we love and who we don’t, unless we tell them somehow…..the whitelist.
How do you whitelist?
There are so many different email programs. I won’t be able to help you will all of them. If yours is not listed here contact your ISP customer service people to find out how to whitelist.
In your inbox, locate an email from the sender you wish to whitelist.
Drag this email to the ‘primary’ folder of your inbox.
When opening an email, a ‘+’ symbol should appear next to From and the sender’s name.
Select this and an ‘Add to contacts’ pop-up should appear. Select ‘save’.
Mac OS X:
In the mac OS X Mail top menu, click Mali>Preferences.
Click the Rules tab.
Click Add Rule.
Type a name in the Description field, such as ‘Whitelist’ to identify the new rule.
For the conditions – set the first dropdown menu to any, so that it reads: if any of the following conditions are met.
In the next two dropdown menus, select From in the first, and Ends with, for the second.
In the text field following Ends with, enter @PositivelyJane.net (the name you want to white-list).
If you want to add more – click the plus sign next to the last condition.
In the Perform the following actions section, set the three dropdown menus to: Move Message, to the mailbox: Inbox
Click OK to save the rule
Close the Rules window.
Open the email message from the sender you want to add to your address book.
Right-click Click here to download images in the gray bar at the top of the message.
Click Add Sender to Senders Safe List to finish.
Right-click on the email you received (in the list of emails).
Click Junk E-mail.
Click Add Sender to Safe Senders List to finish.
