Whitelist

Add Catholic Radio Association to your Whitelist:

Outlook:
The junk mail filter built into Microsoft Outlook, while unpretentious, is pretty capable and often sufficient. It is not perfect, though, and a helping hand does not hurt its performance.

One way you can help Outlook achieve better spam filtering accuracy is by adding known senders to its list of Safe Senders. This makes sure mail from these senders always goes directly to your Outlook Inbox, no matter what the junk mail algorithm might think.

You can also whitelist complete domains using Safe Senders. After signing up for The Catholic Radio Association newsletter, I have added “catholicradioassociation.org” to the list, for example.

To add an address or domain to Safe Senders in Outlook:

Select Actions | Junk E-mail | Junk E-mail Options… from the menu in Outlook.
Go to the Safe Senders tab.
Click Add….
Type the email address or domain name you want to whitelist.
To add a single address, type “info@catholicradioassociation.org”
To add a complete domain, type “catholicradioassociation.org ”
Click OK
Click OK again

If you already have a message from the sender you want to add to the Safe Senders list in your Outlook Inbox (or the Junk E-mail folder, of course), the procedure is even easier:

Open a message from the sender (or a sender at the domain) you want to add to Safe Senders.
Select Actions | Junk E-mail and then Add Sender to Safe Senders List or Add Sender’s Domain “@catholicradioassociation.org” to Safe Senders List.

Outlook 2003:

Add a name to your Safe Senders or Safe Recipients List

You can add either the sender’s e-mail address or their domain name to the Safe Senders List.

On the Tools menu, click Options.
On the Preferences tab, under E-mail, click Junk E-mail.
Click the Safe Senders or Safe Recipients tab.
Click Add.
In the “Enter an e-mail address or Internet domain name to be added to the list” box, enter the name or address: info@catholicradioassociation.org, then click OK.
Repeat steps 4 and 5 for each name or address that you want to add.

Yahoo!:

To ensure that your RadioActive Messenger newsletter from the Catholic Radio Association is delivered to your Yahoo Inbox (not the Bulk Mail folder), you can instruct Yahoo to filter it to your Inbox. Here’s how:

Open your Yahoo mailbox.
Click Mail Options.
Click Filters.
Next, click Add Filter.
In the top row, labeled From header: make sure contains is selected in the pull-down menu.
Click in the text box next to that pull-down menu, then enter the address in the “From” line of your most recent RadioActive Messenger newsletter or E-Blast.
At the bottom, where it says Move the message to: select Inbox from the pull-down menu.
Click the Add Filter button again.

Thank you for white-listing the Catholic Radio Association.

Hotmail:

If you are using Hotmail, you can ensure that your RadioActive Messenger newsletter from the Catholic Radio Association is delivered to your Inbox by adding our “From” address to your Safe List. Here’s how:

Click the Options tab.
Select Safe List. (It’s under the heading Mail Handling.)
In the space provided, enter the address in the “From” line of your most recent RadioActive Messenger newsletter or E-Blast.
Click Add.
When you see the address you entered in the Safe List box, click OK.

Thank you for white-listing the Catholic Radio Association.

AOL:
If you’re using AOL, you can ensure that your RadioActive Messenger from the Catholic Radio Association is delivered to your Inbox by setting your Mail Controls. Here’s how:

Go to Keyword Mail Controls.
Select the screen name to which we are sending your RadioActive Messenger newsletters.
Click Customize Mail Controls For This Screen Name.

For AOL version 9.0: You need to add our sending address (info@catholicradioassociation.org) to your “People I Know” list.

Open your latest Catholic Radio Association e-mail.
Click the Add Address button (over on the right) to add Catholic Radio Association to your “People I Know” list.
Alternatively, you can just send an e-mail to Catholic Radio Association (info@catholicradioassociation.org) “From” address, and that will add us to your “People I Know” list automatically.

For AOL version 7.0: In the section for “exclusion and inclusion parameters”, include:

@catholicradioassociation.org

For AOL version 8.0: Select Allow email from all AOL members, email addresses and domains.

Click Next until the Save button shows up at the bottom.
Click Save.

Thank you for white-listing the Catholic Radio Association.

Others:
Many popular e-mail programs, including Outlook, Outlook Express, Eudora, and Netscape Mail, don’t provide a convenient way for you to white-list the folks you want to receive e-mail from. If you’re using this sort of e-mail system and you either aren’t getting your Newsletter or regular e-mails from the Catholic Radio Association, you can do something about it.

Contact the customer service people or the Postmaster at the company that provides your e-mail or Internet connection (your ISP). Explain to them that Crossroads Initiative Newsletter is e-mail that you asked for and value. Ask them if they can white-list Crossroads. They’ll probably ask you for some information about us. Here’s what to tell them:

Sending Address: If they ask for our address, give them the address in the “From” line (info@catholicradioassociation.org).
Domain: If they need to know the domain we’re mailing from, tell them: @catholicradioassociation.org
IP Address: If they ask for our sending IP address, tell them: 216.84.198.225

Notes:
If you want your Contacts to be considered safe senders, select the Also trust e-mail from my Contacts check box on the Safe Senders tab. All e-mail addresses in your Contacts folder will then be used by the Junk E-mail Filter to evaluate messages.

If you want people who are not necessarily in your Contacts but are people you correspond with regularly to be considered safe senders, select the Automatically add people I e-mail to the Safe Senders List check box on the Safe Senders tab. By default, the check box is selected. This check box is introduced with Microsoft Office 2003 Service Pack 1. To get Service Pack 1, go to Downloads on Office Online. Under Office Update, click Check for Updates.

If Automatic Picture Download is turned off, messages from or to e-mail addresses or domain names on the Safe Senders and Safe Recipients Lists will be treated as exceptions and the blocked content will be downloaded.

If you have existing lists of safe names and addresses, you can import the information into Microsoft Office Outlook 2003 by saving the list into a text (.txt) file with one entry per line, and then importing the list.

To quickly add a sender, domain name, or mailing list name to the Safe Senders or Safe Recipients Lists, right-click the message you consider safe, and then on the shortcut menu, point to Junk E-mail, and then click Add Sender to Safe Senders List, Add Sender’s Domain (@catholicradioassociation.org) to Safe Senders List, or Add Recipient to Safe Recipients List.

If you are using a Microsoft Exchange Server e-mail account, names and e-mail addresses in the Global Address List (Global Address List: The address book that contains all user, group, and distribution list e-mail addresses in your organization. The administrator creates and maintains this address book. It may also contain public folder e-mail addresses.) are automatically considered safe.

If you are using an Exchange Server e-mail account and working online, you must be using Microsoft Exchange Server 2003 or later. If you do not know what version of Exchange server your e-mail account is using, contact your Exchange administrator.
