White-list and Email in Other Web Mail Providers:
If you use a Web mail system or email application not listed above, the instructions for white-listing an address will depend on the specific email program you are using. If you access the help files, instruction manual, or customer support, there should be instructions on how to do this. In some cases, adding the “From” address to your address book, safe list, white list or contact list will be sufficient.
If the email is not getting to your inbox, then we suggest checking your spam folder, bulk folder or junk folder. If you find the email, then find a way to inform your mail application that it is not spam. Most likely the course of action is to select the email and click on the Not Spam or Not Junk button, if available.
For more information about your mail application, please visit the help section that is associated with your mail application.
