Whitelist in Gmail

How to Add an Email Address to the Whitelist in Gmail

At Palzin Monitor, we understand the importance of managing your email effectively. While Gmail's spam filtering feature is useful, it may occasionally flag legitimate emails as spam. To ensure you receive emails from trusted sources without them being marked as spam, you can whitelist the email address. Follow the steps below to learn how.

Option 1: Adding the Email Address to Gmail Contacts

One way to inform Gmail's spam filter that you want to receive emails from a specific address is by adding it to your Gmail contacts. This action indicates that the sender is trusted, and their messages should not be marked as spam. However, this method does not guarantee that all future emails will bypass the spam filter.

On Gmail Web:

  1. Open the email from the sender you want to whitelist.
  2. Click on the sender's profile picture to open the information box.
  3. Click on the "Add to Contacts" icon located in the top-right corner of the box.

On Gmail Mobile App:

  1. Open the email from the sender you want to whitelist.
  2. Tap on the sender's profile picture to bring up the action sheet.
  3. Click on the "Add to Contacts" icon in the top-right corner of the box.

Option 2: Creating a Filter Rule

For a more comprehensive approach to prevent all emails from a specific sender from being marked as spam, you can create a custom filter rule. This acts as a whitelist within Gmail.

Please note that this method can only be done using the desktop version of Gmail.

On Gmail Web:

  1. Click on the "Show search options" icon located in the search bar at the top (A form will appear).
  2. Enter the email address of the sender in the "From" field (this will whitelist the address).
  3. Click on "Create filter" at the bottom-right corner of the form (a selection of check-boxes will appear).
  4. Select "Never send it to spam".
  5. Click on "Create filter."

By following these steps, you can ensure that emails from specific senders are not mistakenly marked as spam in your Gmail account. Palzin Monitor is committed to providing you with valuable insights and guidance for optimizing your email experience.
