Whitelisting ISPs is no longer an option if you want to receive your important email. Here's how to do it...
Place the domain scared-out-of-your-wits.com in your Address Book. Check AOL help for details, if necessary.
Different versions have different features. For example in version 7.0, go to Keyword Mail Controls -- after you select your screen name and left-click on "Customize Mail Controls For This Screen Name," enter the above domain in the section "exclusion and inclusion parameters."
For AOL version 8.0, select "Allow email from all AOL members, email addresses and domains." Then left-click on "Next" until the Save button shows up at the bottom. Left click on "Save."
If Spam-blocker is enabled and if the email message is legitimate and was screened as spam, forward the original message as an attachment to
Your Graymail folder contains all possible spam email. The Graymail folder shows up on the Spam Control page only after you activate the "Filter" option. Before you activate that option, there is no Graymail folder.
Once you have enabled the Spam Control feature, they have created an email address for you to send your feedback. If you receive email identified as **POTENTIAL-SPAM** and it is not spam, please send that information to
You must opt-out of MailGuard to receive the scared-out-of-your-wits.com email. Once it is received, forward it (with full headers) to
to have scared-out-of-your-wits.com whitelisted.
To use Sympatico's Safe List, first click Options on the GetEmail toolbar, then click Anti-Spam Controls on the Options sidebar to open the Anti-Spam Controls page. Now locate the Block Senders section and beside the Safe List box, enter the domain scared-out-of-your-wits.com and click the Add button.
Whitelisting Other ISPs
When it comes to whitelisting ISPs, each ISP is a little different, but the idea is the same. ISPs usually provide help or instructions about whitelisting. But...
If you can't find how to add the scared-out-of-your-wits.com domain to a whitelist, call or email your ISP's tech support or firstname.lastname@example.org and specifically ask how you can be sure to receive all email from me (mentioning the domain name: scared-out-of-your-wits.com). Be sure to follow your ISP's instructions for whitelisting the scared-out-of-your-wits.com domain.
I hope the above information is helpful. You'll find that while whitelisting ISPs is not difficult, it is an important step to take to ensure you receive the important email you want.
