Whitelist an Email Address

Why Whitelabel an Email Address?

Your email provider likes to look out for you. It doesn't think you need enhancement pills or dates from overseas. Sometimes it doesn't thing you need to buy anything else or read subversive materials.

But really, sometimes it goes overboard and hides or mis-categorizes emails that you do want to read. And I just know you're going to want to read my emails, right??

*note: I'm going to send you good stuff, so open those emails from me!

The solution is to whitelist (AKA safelist) emails to let your email provider know for sure you want to read emails from certain people.
