How to Whitelist my E-mails

Ensure that you're the first to know about engagement session winners, special offers, and wedding planning tips!

I have recently switched email marketing providers, so it's not uncommon that some of my emails will land in your spam folder in the beginning. Your email servers need to learn that my emails are still safe—though they are being sent via a new marketing platform.


By whitelisting—you can ensure that the spam filters let my email through as safe. That way you don't miss the announcement with the winners of the free engagement session, or any of the wedding plannings tips and advice that I send out to my brides and subscribers.


For G-Mail:

  1. Go to your G-mail account (you'll need to do this on a web browser, not mobile.)

  2. Click the gear icon in the top-right, then select Settings

  3. Click the Filters and Blocked Addresses tab

  4. Click Create a New Filter

  5. In the pop-up window, enter the email address or domain (e.g., that you want whitelisted in the From field

  6. Click Create Filter

  7. Check "Never send it to Spam"

  8. Click Create Filter


For Yahoo:


Because you have already received an e-mail from me, confirming your subscription, all you have to do is highlight that message in the Bulk folder and mark it as Not Spam. Once you have identified a single email from a given sender, the Yahoo Mail spam filters will automatically allow future messages from the same address into your inbox.


For Outlook:


  1. Click on “Settings”, then “View all Outlook settings”.

  2. Go to “Junk email”, then choose “Safe senders and domains” or “Safe mailing lists” to select the domain or email you want to whitelist.

  3. Enter the domain name or email address you wish to add to Safe senders. Make sure to include the @ character for domain names in order to only whitelist emails with the exact string of characters you entered (and nothing more).


Alternatively, you can simply add an individual email address that has sent you an email to your Outlook Contacts. Though they lead to the same result, this method is quicker and more efficient than manually entering information.


For AOL:

Many people looking for email whitelisting instructions for AOL are confused by the fact that AOL doesn’t have a traditional email whitelist. Instead, it considers all mail addresses a user has in his or her address book to be trustworthy.

  1. Log in to your AOL account.

  2. Open Contacts from the left navigation pane.

  3. Click the New Contact icon and enter the required information.

  4. Click the Add Contact button located at the bottom.
