Add Our Address to Your Safe Sender List

Add Our Address to Your Email Safe Senders List, Address Book or Contact List

Email newsletters can be blocked or filtered into the bulk folder especially now that email filters are focusing more strongly on 'suspicious' or commercial mail. As a result of these changes you may be unable to read certain email communications from us - even though you have subscribed to receive them.

To avoid these situations, add our email address of "editor@techopedia.com" and/or domain name of "techopedia.com" to your Safe Senders List.

We've put together a list of the most commonly used email programs with easy to follow instructions on how to add email addresses to your Safe Senders List.

Please add either the From Address that the email you received came from (usually "editor@techopedia.com") OR add the domain "@techopedia.com" to your Address Book or Contacts to continue receiving your subscriptions in your inbox!

What is an Email Safe Senders List?

Each email program features spam filters which automatically recognize white-listed and blacklisted email addresses. White-listed addresses are deemed acceptable and mail from these addresses is usually delivered to the inbox without additional filtering. Blacklisted addresses are senders from which you do not wish to receive email from. The Safe Senders List, also commonly referred to as a White List, is a list of all email addresses you would like to receive email from without impediment.

Your Safe Senders List is managed by you within your email program and can be easily updated based on your preferences. By default, email messages that you add to your own personal address book are considered safe and will not be re-routed to your junk email folder.

Each program has different steps in order to do this. Please click on the link for the software you have and follow the instructions:
