How to whitelist us in Hotmail, Yahoo, and AOL to be sure our messages are not blocked

AOL

If you're using AOL, you can ensure that our messages are delivered to your Inbox by setting your Mail Controls. Here's how:

For AOL version 9.0 or higher: (for version 7.0 and 8.0 look further down)

Click on the Mail Menu in the Menu Bar along the top of the screen, or,
Click on Mail Center
Mail Center Screen appears,
Under Mail Preferences click on 'Customize your e-mail' and Click Next->
Under Essentials click on 'Spam Controls' and Click Next->
Mail and Spam Controls Screen appears

On the right panel of the screen make sure that 'Mail filtered by AOL's Advanced Spam Filter' is turned On (checkmark appears), and that underneath that you have both 'Mail with clickable Hyberlinks (URLS)' and 'Mail containing words and phrases on my Custom Word List' turned Off (no checkmark appearing).

On the left panel
Make sure that 'Block mail containing pictures or files' is turned Off (no checkmark appearing) - we may sometimes send you messages with photos (e.g. newsletter).

On the left panel select either:
(*) 'Allow mail from all senders' (allows ALL e-mail)
or
(*) 'Use a Custom Sender list' (allows selective e-mail)
Note: the other options are too selective to allow e-mail from us, and almost anyone else who might send you e-mail.

If you select Option 1 above: 'Allow mail from all senders', you're done.
Thank you for white-listing us.

If you select Option 2 above: 'Use a Custom Sender list'
Follow these instructions to allow e-mail from 1st-international.com:

Click on the blue link: Custom Sender List that is part of 'Use a Custom Sender List' option.
The Custom Sender List appears

Make sure you select the second option (*) 'Allow only the domains and senders listed below'
In the space provided, enter the addresses below:
1st-international.com and Click 'Add'
To accept e-mail from other domains add the other domains in the same way you did above for all of the domains or friends e-mail addresses you want to add.
Click Save (on the Custom Sender List screen)->
Click Save to Apply these Mail Controls (on the Mail and Spam Controls screen)->
Close any remaining open windows.
Thank you for white-listing 1st-international.com.

For AOL version 7.0, or 8.0:

Click on the Mail Menu in the Menu Bar along the top of the screen.
Click on Mail Controls
About Mail Controls Screen appears, Click on Next->
Select 'Customize Mail Controls for this Screen Name, and Click Next->

Select Either
(*) 'Allow e-mail from all AOL members, e-mail addresses, and domains.' (allows ALL e-mail)
or
(*) 'Allow e-mail from all AOL members, and from the listed domains and e-mail addresses. Block e-mail from all others.' (allows selective e-mail)

If you select Option 1 above: 'Allow e-mail from all AOL members, e-mail addresses, and domains.', you're done.

If you select Option 2 above: 'Allow e-mail from all AOL members, and from the listed domains and e-mail addresses. Block e-mail from all others.'
Follow these instructions to allow e-mail from 1st-international.com:

In the space provided, enter the addresses below:
1st-international.com and Click 'Add'

Click Next->
Select 'Allow this Screen Name to send and receive mail with pictures and files'.
Click Save to Apply these Mail Controls.

Hotmail

To ensure that messages from specific e-mail addresses are not sent to your Junk E-Mail folder, you can add them to your Safe List.
Click Options.
On the left side of the page, click Mail, and then click Junk E-Mail Protection.
Click Safe List.

Type "1st-international.com" (without quotes), and then click Add.

Notes

You can have up to 500 entries in your Safe List.
The Safe List filter is different from the Mailing List filter. The Safe List filter uses the From line of a message to filter e-mail. The Mailing List filter uses the To line.

We welcome any other questions you might have
