Without the jargon, whitelisting simply means that our newsletter and emails end up in your main inbox and not in spam, trash or becoming blocked before even reaching you!
Fortunately, most email providers have the ability to "whitelist" contacts. These can be manually maintained by the user or system administrator - but can also refer to externally maintained whitelist services.
Here are the main email providers and how to get whitelisting!
1. Open an email from the sender that you want to whitelist.
2. Click on the little down arrow next to “reply.”
