Do you ever find yourself losing important emails? Are you worried that emails from your favorite contacts may end up in the dreaded spam folder? The solution is to add them to your email whitelist! Doing this will ensure that all emails from trusted contacts always make it to your inbox. In this blog post, we’ll discuss why it’s important to add contacts to your whitelist and provide instructions for how to do it for several popular email providers. Don’t lose our emails – add us to your email whitelist today!
Once you become a licensed real estate person, you will want to whitelist emails from your Broker, key contacts such as your mortgage and home inspection partners, the Virginia Real Estate Board (@dpor.virginia.gov), and your clients!
If you’re a Gmail user, you can easily add us to your email whitelist by creating a filter. Start by clicking the cog wheel in the top right corner of your inbox, then select “Settings.” From the Settings page, click the tab labeled “Filters and Blocked Addresses” and then “Create a new filter.” In the “From” field, enter the email address or just the domain (@varealtyschool.com) you’d like to whitelist and hit “Create filter with this search.” Once you’ve created the filter, check the box next to “Never send it to Spam” and click “Create Filter.” Now our emails will always appear in your primary inbox!
If you use Yahoo! Mail, it is easy to ensure our emails will always make it to your inbox. To add us to your Yahoo! Mail whitelist, first login to your account and go to the “Settings” section. From there, select “Filters” and click “Add.” Enter our email address (@varealtyschool.com) and click “Save.” This will add us to the list of approved senders for your account. Now any emails sent from us will be delivered directly to your inbox rather than the spam folder. This process should work for both the webmail version of Yahoo! Mail as well as its mobile app. If you use both Gmail and Yahoo! Mail, you may need to whitelist our email address in both places to guarantee that our messages get to you.
