Protect yourself against the overzealous spam filters to make sure you are the first to hear about winner announcements, updates and more.
Getting all future emails from firstname.lastname@example.org to appear in the “Primary” tab (instead of “Promotions”, or elsewhere) is a quick, two-step process.
First of all, drag-and-drop the email message from beneath the tab it’s currently filed under, to the “Primary” tab:
Once done, a message alert will appear with, “This conversation has been moved to Primary. Do this for all future messages from email@example.com?” Select “Yes:”
When opening an email message, a “+” symbol should display next to From:hello@astralcollective.
Select this and an “Add to contacts” pop-up should appear. Select “Save:”
Outlook and Hotmail
After opening an email message, an alert message should display with, “Parts of this message have been blocked for your safety.” Beneath this, click the link with, “I trust firstname.lastname@example.org. Always show content:”
Apple Mail (Mac and iPhone devices)
Both Apple Mail on OSX (Mac computers) and Mail on iOS devices (iPhones) have a similar process for adding senders to Contacts. By selecting the From, or Reply-to on an email message, you can choose to “Add to Contacts” or “Add to VIPs.”
The advantage of “Add to VIPs” is that future emails from this sender will be added to a special VIP mailbox in iOS Mail.
On Android devices, open the email message and touch the picture of the sender that displays before the message. Tap “Add to Contacts.”
