How To Whitelist Our Email Address To Ensure Activation Of Your Account

In this day and age of the internet and speed at which everything changes the last thing you want is to miss an important email.

Therefore it is worth whitelisting the email address before you receive it to ensure an over zealous spam filter program doesn't block it or worse send it to a "black hole" so you never even see it.

Most email providers these days will automatically block a senders email address sent for the first time to your email address unless you whitelist them before hand.

Spam management programs usually work very well blocking legitimate spam and allowing good email to get through.

However, artificial intelligence isn't an exact science and mistakes occur.

Whitelisting is a way of mitigating these mistakes so you never miss an important message sent to your inbox.

Even so after whitelisting the senders email address you may have to check the spam folder and classify it as "Not Spam" for some email providers like gmail, hotmail and yahoo.

Below we'll show you how to whitelist our email address (webmaster at vanisleclassifieds dot com) in the most common email providers.

However, you can highlight it and drag it up closer to the top so you can see it.

To whitelist first time email sender in gmail click on the gear icon in the top right corner after logging into your account.
