What is allowlisting?

You are often asked to add the email address of a sender to your address book. It is another way to ask you to allowlist their email address.

To allowlist an email address just means you add the email address to your approved or safe senders list. This tells your email client that you know this sender and trust them, which will keep emails from this contact at the top of your inbox and out of the junk folder.

So you know what is really from me, I will send you emails from the domain:

@amoritz.com

The email addresses I will use will be with this domain and will most likely be addresses you can find on my contact page or from my email mailing list address insights(@)amoritz(.)com

The two main email addresses that I will contact you with when you subscribe and buy products from my store are insights(@)amoritz(.)com and support(@)amoritz(.)com 

To be sure to not miss any important emails from me, add these two email address to your safe senders list.

You should not accept emails from an email address to which there is anything else added to et removed from the address before, after or in the address name. 

What are safe sender lists?

Safe sender lists are lists or filters that you can create in you respective email client. When a sender is added to your safe sender list, their emails are more likely to be delivered to your inbox. This also helps ensure that you won't miss future messages that you opted into receiving.

What is an email client?

An email client is a software or application used to access and manage emails.

  • Gmail 
  • Yahoo! 
  • Microsoft Outlook/Hotmail/Office/Office 365 
  • Samsung Mail
