How to Add Safe Senders Lists

What are Safe Senders Lists?

Safe Senders Lists are lists of people you would like to receive email from. These senders could be your friends, family, co-workers, businesses, services, and so on. The reason you might need to explicitly put an email address into a Safe Senders List is because email services and programs like Hotmail, GMail, Outlook, Yahoo! Mail and others can be very proactive about marking email as Junk or Spam. When this happens, it's likely you might either never see it or it will be hidden in a Spam or Junk email folder. Sometimes lots of important mail is trapped this way.
To avoid this, follow the steps below for the email service you are using. This will ensure you receive the reminders, notifications, ECards and so on from www.2reminders.com.
