How To Whitelist Emails
It’s a fact of life that there are a lot of people sending out a lot of emails these days, and our inboxes get filled up so quickly, for many of us it’s difficult to keep up! While some of those emails are very helpful, entertaining and informative, unfortunately others are filled with useless information considered “spam”.
In an attempt to help relieve us from this spam, the various internet service providers (ISP’s) select some emails for our primary inbox where we’ll see them straight away, and direct others to our junk or promotional folders where we may not see them at all.
It’s possible to ensure that all emails from a reliable source are directed to your inbox where you’ll see them every time. This is called “whitelisting”, and thankfully it’s quite simple to do. We encourage you to whitelist emails from us to ensure you receive all of our helpful and insightful peaceful digital parenting tips.
Depending on what email service you use there are different ways to do this. The most common are illustrated below.
