How To Whitelist An Email Address Or Domain
Posted by - NA - on 15 May 2012 02:15 PM

Occasionally we may send you an email or reply to an email you sent us which gets caught by your spam filter.

This is due to your email settings and will result in the email not showing in your inbox.

This article show how different applications manage spam and will help you to retrieve any email which your settings have labelled as junk and add them to the list of safe senders.

The most common email applications as listed below with instructions on how configure them to receive our emails.

MS Outlook

From the Select the Junk E-mail folder

Right click on email

Select Junk E-mail 'Mark As not Junk'

This will mark the sender as safe and move the email into your Inbox

You can also Select ''Junk E-mail'' and the click ''Add Sender To Safe Senders List''

You can also add ABugFreeMind.com to your safe senders list by following these instructions:

From the 'Tools' menu select the 'Options' menu

From 'Options' select 'Preferences'

Select 'Junk mai'l and then Add Safe Senders'

When Done click Ok

Yahoo Mail

If Yahoo interprets an email as SPAM, it will place it in your "Bulk" folder - located in the left navigation. It's a good idea to check this folder periodically. If you find an email in the bulk folder that you wanted to receive, simply open the email and click on the "Not Spam" button. This will help to train Yahoo's filters that this email sender is not sending SPAM. Note that this will not automatically insure that you'll receive email from the desired sender in the future. You've done your part to help in the fight against SPAM - now let's make sure that you receive the ABugFreeMind.com email notifications. To do this, follow these steps:

Open your Yahoo mailbox and click on the "Options" link in the upper right-hand corner)

Find the "Filters" link and click on it

We're going to set-up a new filter, so click on "Add"

In the "Filter Name" box, give your filter a name that reminds you of what it's all about - you might use something like "A Bug Free Mind"

In the "From header" section, select "contains" and then in the box immediately to the right, enter the text:

ABugFreeMind.com

Near the bottom of the filter window, find the section that says "Move the message to:" and select "Inbox" from the dropdown box. In the lower left corner, click the "Add Filter" button

Voila! You've done it - you've told Yahoo that anytime it receives an email from ABugFreeMind.com to place in it your Inbox.
 
Hotmail

Login to your Hotmail account.

Hotmail will place any email that it interprets as SPAM in the "Junk" folder - located in the left navigation when you login. You'll want to make sure to check this folder every so often to make sure that an email you did want to receive did not end-up there.

If there is mail you would like to move from the the junk email folder select the mail which you want to move and click on Not Junk

You may also want to check the deleted items folder as every few days items in the junk mail folder are moved here.

You can insure that the ABugFreeMind.com messages are being delivered to your Inbox by adding us as a "Safe sender". Here's how:

Click on the "Options" tab in the upper right-hand corner and then click on "More options ...".

We want to add ABugFreeMind.com as a Safe Sender, so locate the "Junk e-mail" category and click on "Safe and blocked senders".

Click on "Safe senders"

In the box labeled "Sender or domain to mark as safe:", enter the following:

ABugFreeMind.com

Click the "Add to list >>" button

That's it! There is no "save" button - you've now insured that you'll receive emails from ABugFreeMind.com

Note: Hotmail uses additional protection features that will block attachments, pictures, and links in the message. Our newsletter uses a number of graphics (pictures) and often includes links to our site. To see these, simply open one of our emails and click the "Mark as safe" link at the top of the email. This will add ABugFreeMind.com to your "safe list" and will allow all pictures and links to function in the current and future emails.

Alternatively click on the options tab and select the spam filters link. From here select add to whitelist filter

You will notice that the email address "ABugFreeMind.com" has been auto-populated in the "Other E-Mail" field - this is fine! You don't need to fill-in any of the other fields, but you're free to do so if it helps you organize your contacts better

Click the "Save" button at the bottom of the Address Card window. You're done!

Updates

Email providers are always trying to find new ways to block messages they fear may be spam, most of the time they get it right but sometimes they get it wrong.

Please do a Google search sometimes and check how to whitelist an email within your providers system.
