Add an Email Address to the Safe Sender List in Outlook


Adding an email address to a safe sender list in Outlook is an easy way to ensure that you always receive important emails from a specific sender. In this blog post, we will walk you through the steps on how to do this.

Step 1: Open Outlook and click on the “Home” tab.

Step 2: Locate the “Junk” button and click on it. A drop-down menu will appear.

Step 3: Click on “Junk E-mail Options.”

Step 4: In the “Junk E-mail Options” window, click on the “Safe Senders” tab.

Step 5: In the “Safe Senders” tab, click on the “Add” button.

Step 6: A window will appear asking you to enter the email address that you want to add to your safe sender list. Enter the email address and click on the “OK” button.

Step 7: The email address will now be added to your safe sender list.

It’s important to note that you can also add entire domains to your safe sender list. For example, if you want to add all emails from “@example.com” to your safe sender list, simply enter “example.com” in the “Add” window and click “OK”.

It is also important to note that if you want to remove an email address from your safe sender list, you can do so by following the same steps as above and clicking on the email address in the “Safe Senders” tab and then click on the “Remove” button.

Additionally, if you have the email in your inbox, you can right click the email, click on “Junk” and then “Never Block Sender”

Another important point to consider is that adding an email address to your safe sender list will not automatically move all emails from that sender to your inbox. If an email from a safe sender is caught by your spam filter, you will still need to manually move it to your inbox.

In conclusion, adding an email address to your safe sender list in Outlook is a simple process that can save you a lot of time and hassle. By ensuring that you always receive important emails from specific senders, you can stay organised and on top of your inbox. Remember that you can also add entire domains to your safe sender list, and if you ever need to remove an email address from your list, it’s a simple process as well.

Feb 8th Mark H Really speedy response to my issue which Jack resolved quickly. As issue repeats, Jack advised to ensure latest updates installed (they were) and that he would dig to see if this is a known issue (set preference for monitor to mirror laptop screen keeps reverting). As ever, first class support form the Purple Computing Team!
