Add to Your Whitelist

Are you one of the many who have created a whitelist for your e-mail to try and keep all the spam out of your Inbox? If you are, then good for you! It’s one step you can take to ensure that most of the “bad” stuff stays out of your e-mail and in the trash. Now, before I go any further, in case you’re not familiar with a whitelist, read here. That will give you complete instructions on how to get one going for your Outlook Express e-mail program.

Okay, so once you’ve got your list created, you’ll probably go about your business checking your e-mail and thinking how wonderful it is to not have to deal with all that spam. Well, that is until you take a look through your “spam” folder and you realize that a few of the messages you would normally accept got stuck in the trash. If you forgot to add a couple e-mail addresses to your whitelist, it’s no problem. It’s very easy to add another one in. Here’s how you do it.

In Outlook Express, go to Tools, Message Rules, Mail and find the whitelist rule you have created. Under the Rule Description area, you will see all of the e-mail addresses you have added to your list. Click on any one of those and new box will appear. Go ahead and type the new address you want to allow in the open box and click Add. That will automatically add that particular address to your whitelist and you will be able to receive e-mails from them. Click OK twice to finish. So, from now on, you know that if need to add someone to your list, it’s as easy as pie!
