Hello friends! Over the past 2 weeks, I’ve realized that the process I follow for checking my spam folder, and then whitelisting email addresses or entire domains, is probably something you guys should know how to do. Why? I have a couple of great reasons:
1) If you want to make sure all emails from ANYONE at a specific company get to your inbox.
2) If you want to make sure emails from a specific person get to your inbox.
Okay, to begin, you need to know the term whitelisting. Whitelisting is a process where you tell your email client that certain people or certain companies are okay. They are then “whitelisted” as valid senders and won’t get considered junk or spam. (For this entire article, I will be referreing to Gmail from here on out.)
When you whitelist an email address, you are telling Gmail that anything from that specific person is to be considered okay and always delivered to your inbox. When you whitelist a domain, you are telling Gmail that anything from ANY person at that organization is to be considered okay and always delivered to your inbox.
My video this week is only 5 minutes long and shows you exactly how to whitelist a specific email address or an entire domain. The process is simple, and it will save you time in the long run if you learn how to whitelist the people and companies you always want to see emails from in your inbox. (Without having to wade through your junk folder.)
