WHITELIST US

So you don't miss any important emails.

Unsolicited emails, commonly known as SPAM, have become a big issue for users of the Internet. To counter-act this problem, Internet Service Providers (ISP’s) have had to put filtering systems in place to try and stop it. However these are not yet perfect, and all too often your ISP can unintentionally block emails that you have requested.

To make sure you get your requested email and client notices from NLP TIMES, apply these simple guidelines to your email program or web-based email service.

We have added specific instructions for the most common email clients below.

Please note the From Field will always be info @ nlptimes.com

Gmail

If you're using Google's gmail for e-mail, you can ensure that valued e-mail is delivered to your Inbox by either adding the sending address to your Contacts list or by marking any incorrectly filed e-mail as "Not Spam". Here's how:

  • Open the latest issue of the e-mail you want to whitelist.
  • Click the More Options link. It's on the title line of the e-mail, over on the right, next to the date. (If you see "Hide Options" instead, then you already have the extra options visible and can just skip this step.)
  • When the extra options are visible (just below the subject line), click the Add Sender to contacts list link.

Alternatively, you can just send an e-mail to the "From" address, and that will add the address to your Contacts list automatically.

  • Open the latest issue of the e-mail you want to whitelist.
  • Click the Reply link (it's at the bottom of the e-mail, on the left).
  • A new email window opens with an address pre-filled in the "Send To" box.
  • Click Send Now (it's in the top right corner).

Even if the e-mail you send doesn't get through (for whatever reason), the act of sending it does the job of putting the address into your Contacts list - and that's what counts.

If one of your valued e-mails has been filtered into the Spam folder, you can prevent that ever happening again for that particular "From" address:

  • Click on the Spam link to open your Spam folder.
  • Click on the wrongly filtered e-mail to open it.
  • Click the 'Not Spam' button at the top of the e-mail (right next to "Delete Forever").

Thank you for white-listing us.

Hotmail

If you're using Hotmail, you can ensure that valued e-mail is delivered to your Inbox by adding the "From" address to your Safe List. Here's how:

  • Log on and click the 'Mail' tab to get into your mailbox.
  • Click 'Options' (it's over at the top right, next to Help).
  • Click 'Junk e-Mail Protection'.
  • Select 'Safe List'.
  • In the space provided, enter the address in the "From" line of the most recent e-mail from the sender you want to whitelist.
  • Click 'Add'.
  • When you see the address you entered in the Safe List box, click 'OK'.

Alternatively, you can add the "From" address to your Contacts list:

  • Open the most recent e-mail from the sender you want to whitelist.
  • Click the 'Save Address' button. (It's over to the right in the line of options just above the e-mail.)
  • Click 'OK'.

  • Click 'Filters'.
  • Next, click 'Add Filter'.
  • In the top row, labeled From header:, make sure contains is selected in the pull-down menu.

  • At the bottom, where it says 'Move the message to':, select 'Inbox' from the pull-down menu.

  • Open the latest issue of the e-mail you want to whitelist.
  • Click the 'Add Address' button (over on the right) to add that sender to your "People I Know" list.

Alternatively, you can just send an e-mail to the "From" address, and that will add the address to your "People I Know" list automatically.

  • Open the latest issue of the e-mail you want to whitelist.
  • Copy the address in the "From" line.
  • Click the Reply button (it's in the top right corner).
  • A new email window opens with an address pre-filled in the "Send To" box.
  • Replace the address in the Send To box with the one you copied out of the 'From' line.
  • Click 'Send Now' (it's in the top right corner).

Even if the e-mail you send doesn't get through (for whatever reason), the act of sending it does the job of putting the address into your "People I Know" list--and that's what counts.

If you're using an earlier version of AOL, you'll need to set your Mail Controls instead. Here's how:

  • Go to 'Keyword Mail Controls'.
  • Select the screen name the valued e-mail is coming to.
  • Click 'Customize Mail Controls For This Screen Name'.
