  2. A "Mail and Spam Controls" box will appear.

  3. Now click on the "Customer Sender" list link and choose the "Allow email from..." option.

  4. Enter, then click "add" and "save." That's it!

  5. In more recent versions of AOL, you can also simply add the name of the sender to your Contacts list. AOL will then recognize that this is someone you want to communicate with. Just click on the sender's email address. A menu should drop down. Select "Add Contact." 

  6. Note that - Replying to an email from a sender you want to whitelist will automatically add the list as a safe sender if you're using AOL webmail. Emails from will then be delivered straight to your inbox. The software will recognize that it's not spam.
