Gmail

Back to top
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.

Others

Back to top
Many popular email programs such as older versions of Outlook, Outlook Express, Eudora, and Netscape Mail, do not provide a convenient way for you to whitelist the folks you want to receive email from. If you aren’t getting your Budget101 emails or want to make sure you continue to receive your email in the future, you can do something about it.

Further instructions on Making Sure You Get Your Email

Contact the customer service people or the Postmaster at the company that provides your email or Internet connection (your ISP). Explain to them that you want to receive Budget101 emails. Ask them if they can whitelist Budget101. They’ll probably ask you for some information about us. Here’s what to tell them:
Sending Address:If they ask for our address, tell them forum@budget101.com
Domain: If they need to know the domain, tell them Budget101.com
Above all, the most important (and simple!) thing you can do is to add the above domain and sending address to your email’s address book!
Thank you!
