How to Whitelist a Domain in Gmail

Gmail’s spam function works well by identifying messages that are likely to be spam and sending them directly to a Spam folder, so you never have to see them. But, this function can become problematic if it works too well, such as when Gmail identifies a message as spam that really isn’t. When that’s the case, you might continue to miss email messages from a certain sender because they always end up in your Spam folder.

If Gmail keeps sending messages from a certain sender to the Spam folder, you can make it stop by telling Gmail the email address is safe. This action, currently called whitelisting, puts the address on your safe sender list and allows those messages through the spam filter and into your inbox.

Start With Filters and Blocked Addresses
The way to mark a specific email address or domain as allowed is to make an email filter.

Step 1: Open Gmail. In the upper-right corner, select the Settings (gear) icon. From the menu, choose Settings.

Step 2: Select Filters and Blocked Addresses.

Step 3: Select Create a new filter. If you already have many filters, you’ll have to scroll down to find this link.

Step 4: A dialog box appears. In the From field, type the email address you want to allow. Be sure to type the full email address, like example@yahoo.com. To allow every email address from a particular domain, type just that domain name, like @yahoo.com.

Step 5: At the bottom of the dialog box, select Create filter.

Step 6: On the next screen, tell Gmail what to do with the email address or domain you just indicated. To do so, select Never send it to Spam. To finish the process, select Create filter.

Step 7: If you want to allow more than one email address or domain, you need not repeat these steps for each one. Instead, put a vertical bar (and a space before and after it) between the separate accounts, as follows: person1@example.com | person2@anotherexample.com | @example2.com
