Missing an email is a pain. Perhaps you forgot your password on a website, so you ask them to send you a password reset link. You wait and wait, and the email never shows up in your inbox. Did they forget about you?
What probably happened was your spam filter picked it up and blocked it. No piece of software is perfect, and even if you have the best email filter in the world, sometimes it’ll block one you wanted to receive.
That’s why you need to whitelist email addresses! If you use McAfee to filter your email, here’s how you add an email address to your whitelist to make sure you never miss an important email again.
- Head to the control console.
- Click Allow/Deny.
- Enter the email address you want to whitelist in the field labeled Add Entrys under the Allow list.
- Click Save.
That’s it! Now, you’ll never have an important email blocked by your McAfee filter again.
