To make sure you always get my emails, please whitelist my email address: firstname.lastname@example.org. Details for each specific provider follow.
1. If my emails are hitting your inbox already, simply: Log into your account and open up the email in your inbox. Hover over the sender’s name for a few seconds and a window will pop up. Select “Add to Contacts” to save email@example.com to your Contacts list.
2. If my emails are landing in “promotions” “social” or “spam”: Getting all future emails from me to appear in the “Primary” tab (instead of “Promotions”, or elsewhere) is a quick, two-step process.
- Drag-and-drop the email message from beneath the tab it’s currently filed under, to the “Primary” tab.
- Once done, a message alert will appear with, “This conversation has been moved to Primary. Do this for all future messages from firstname.lastname@example.org?” Select “Yes”
- Gmail on mobile devices doesn’t provide a way to prioritize messages. However, touching “Show images” then “Always show images from Sender” will ensure that images always display in the inbox.
