What is a whitelist?

A whitelist is a list of email addresses or domains from which email is allowed to be sent. Email senders can request to be added to a whitelist, and recipients can choose to subscribe to a whitelist in order to receive emails from specific senders. Whitelists are often used by email marketers to ensure that their messages are not blocked by spam filters and reach their audience.

What is the purpose of a whitelist?

The purpose of a whitelist is to allow only certain email addresses to send messages to a recipient’s inbox. This is in contrast to a blacklist, which blocks certain email addresses from sending messages and connecting with the recipients.

A whitelist ensure that only emails from approved senders reach the recipient’s inbox. This can be helpful for organizations that want to ensure that their employees only receive messages from approved senders, or for individuals who want to ensure that they only receive messages from approved senders.

A whitelist can also be used to prevent spam from reaching the recipient’s inbox. By adding known spammy email addresses to the blacklist, the recipient’s inbox will be protected from messages from those senders.

How do you add someone to a whitelist?

There are a few ways to add someone to your whitelist in email marketing.

Go into the “Settings” tab in your email marketing account and then click on “Whitelisting.” There, you can type in the email addresses of the people you want to receive your emails for getting communication from them in the future.

Open the email that you want to send to the person you want to whitelist and then click on the little arrow next to “Reply.” A drop-down menu will appear, and you can click on “Add to Address Book.”

You can also copy and paste the email address of the person you want to whitelist into the “To” field when you’re composing your email.

How do you remove someone from a whitelist?

Removing someone from a whitelist is easy – all you have to do is delete their email address from the list. However, if you’re not sure how to do that, or if you’re not sure how to add someone to a whitelist, then here’s a step-by-step guide:

  1. Open your email client and click on the “Tools” or “Settings” menu.
  2. Select “Address Book” or “White List”.
  3. Click on “New” and then add the email address you want to add to the whitelist.
  4. To remove someone from the whitelist, select their email address and then click on the “Delete” button.

What happens if someone is not on a whitelist?

If someone is not on a whitelist, they will not receive the email. Whitelists are a list of email addresses that are allowed to receive emails from a specific sender. This is used as a way to prevent spam from being sent to people’s inboxes. If someone is not on the whitelist, they will not receive the email unless they whitelist the sender’s email address.

Can a whitelist be used for other purposes?

Whitelisting is a term used in email marketing to describe the act of specifically allowing certain email addresses or domains to bypass the spam filters and deliver email messages to the intended recipient’s inbox.

Whitelisting can be used for other purposes, such as preventing all email messages from a specific domain from being sent to the spam folder, or allowing all messages from a trusted source to be automatically delivered to the inbox.

Whitelisting can also be used to allow specific types of messages, such as those containing images or attachments, to bypass the spam filters from blocking the communication.
