How to Safelist Emails

First off, thank you for subscribing to my newsletter!

Below I have put together a little tutorial for how to safelist an email.


What’s an email safelist?

A safelist is essentially a list of people, companies or contacts you want to hear from—or a list of email addresses or domain names from which an email blocking program will allow messages to be received.


How do I safelist?
