Just a Little Reminder...

I know most of us have at one time or another been told to “White List” an email and probably been told how to do it as well – but if you are like me you forget how to do it and when you write it down and put that important paper in a safe place, the paper is put in such a safe place you cannot find it ever again!! Because all emails are not created equal – and each of the email clients you use do use a different system to prevent those important emails from being thrown into the spam folder I am (as a public service - LOL) publishing how to white list...
