How to Whitelist in your email account(s)?

A whitelist is a list or register of those that are being provided a particular privilege, service, mobility, access or recognition. Only those on the list will be accepted, approved or recognized. Whitelisting is the reverse of blacklisting, the practice of identifying those that are spammed, denied, unrecognised, or ostracised.(Reference), so [whitelist an email address] means to accept this email address in your email account, and the emails sent from this email address will not be sent to your [Spam] folder.
