How to Whitelist an Email Address with Gmail, Outlook or Yahoo

“How to Whitelist an Email Address with Gmail, Outlook or Yahoo” written by Mike Marko.

Are you finding that some of your important emails are not ending up in your inbox?  Your email provider may be preventing you from receiving emails from important sources, including for password resets, etc… or even email from me.

That’s why I want to tell you how to whitelist an email address with Gmail, Outlook, or Yahoo! Mail.

But first…

Why You Are Not Receiving Emails

Services like Gmail, Outlook.com and Yahoo! Mail block email to protect you from unwanted or malicious email such as phishing, scams and spam. But them may mistake email that you want for email that you don’t want.

If ask your email provider to unblock or whitelist an email address, email from that address will be more likely to get through.
