A guide to email whitelisting


Everyone uses email. It’s how we are connected, and communicate, in the digital world. Various different email platforms have created various tabs to help sort out the flood of emails for each recipient, which is extremely effective. However, whitelisting your favorite email addresses puts you in an even better position. Why? Stay tuned.

This is an incident that has happened to every single person. Ever spend so much time finding an important email, only to realize that it has been sorted into the wrong “tab”? Here is where whitelisting comes in. Email whitelisting can be a very valuable tool because getting subscribers to whitelist the email address you use means the difference between your extremely important email landing in junk or getting the recipient to read it.

AIP understands the importance of email and the value that it can bring to our applicants. Hence, we’ve come up with ways where you can whitelist our emails. This will make communication between us and you, much easier. This begs the question, what is email whitelisting?

What is an email whitelist?

The very definition of email whitelisting is verifying, and prioritizing, an email address to make sure that you get all of the sender’s latest emails. It is essential if you do not want to miss out on updates, or any latest information. Doing so will keep emails from this contact at the top of your inbox and out of the junk folder.

Here are some of the perks of email whitelisting:

  • You will not miss any of our emails. Email whitelisting gets rid of the possibility that our emails will land in your spam folder, or other unnecessary tabs.
  • AIP’s emails will land in your inbox every time.

How do you whitelist?

Quick recap: whitelisting is a quick, one-time-only task to ensure the sender of an email gets added to the recipient’s address book or safe senders list. Usually, all you need to do is open an email message and verify the sender can be trusted:

Here are instructions on how you can whitelist emails in some of the most used email platforms.


After opening an email message, an alert message should display with, “Parts of this message have been blocked for your safety.” Beneath this, click the link with, “I trust sender@internsinasia.com. Always show content:”

Yahoo! Mail

When you open an email in Yahoo! Mail a “+” symbol should display next to From: and the sender’s name. Select this and an “Add to contacts” pop-up should appear. Select “Save:”


On Gmail, you should set all future AIP emails to appear in the “Primary” tab. This can be done through a quick, two-step process. First of all, select the email then drag-and-drop the email message from beneath the tab it’s currently filed under, to the “Primary” tab.

When that is done, a message alert will appear saying, “This conversation has been moved to Primary. Do this for all future messages from sender@internsinasia.com?” Select “Yes:”

To summarize...

Hopefully, this clarifies any confusion that arises when it comes to email whitelisting. White listing certainly adds an element of verification.

Trust is established between the sender and the recipient. AIP aims to establish clear and transparent communication between all our applicants. We believe that whitelisting emails will certainly help achieve this goal. Who knows, this could be a skill that you will use in the future extremely often.
