How to Whitelist Email
Meca sends out information on our products and occassionaly special promotions. Sometimes these email are flagged as SPAM and blocked by your local email clients or servers. In order to ensure that you receive our emails, please WHITELIST our email by following the instructions below. Please note that although we try to keep this list current, email configuraitons with applications change frequently and it’s possible that some of this information is out of date. If the screens don’t match, please google “Whitelist Email for …..” and add your application to the search (outlook, yahoo, etc..).
Many companies have sophisticated systems that may still block emails even after they are whitelisted. In those cases, it might be worthwhile to use a free account such as gmail, yahoo, etc.. to receive our emails so that you have a greater chance of receiving them.
Apple Mail (OS X and IOS devices)
Both Apple Mail on OSX and Mail on iOS devices have a similar process for adding senders to Contacts. By selecting the From, or Reply-to on an email message, you can choose to “Add to Contacts” or “Add to VIPs.” The difference between the two options is that adding to VIP’s will add emails to a special VIP mailbox.
When opening an email from a sender, an alert at the header of the message, “Click here to download pictures…” should display. Click this and select, “Add Sender to Safe Senders list:”
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 [email protected] Always show content:”
When opening an email message, 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:”
Gmail (Webmail and Mobile)
Getting all future emails from a sender to appear in the “Primary” tab (instead of “Promotions”, or elsewhere) is a quick, two-step process.
First of all, drag-and-drop the email message from beneath the tab it’s currently filed under, to the “Primary” tab:
Once done, a message alert will appear with, “This conversation has been moved to Primary. Do this for all future messages from [email protected]?” Select “Yes:”
Gmail on mobile devices doesn’t provide a way to prioritize messages. However, touching “Show images” then “Always show images from Sender” will ensure that images always display in the inbox:
Android (Default Client)
On Android devices, open the email message and touch the picture of the sender that displays before the message. Tap “Add to Contacts.”
Windows Live Desktop
After opening an email message in Windows Live Desktop, an alert in the preview pane with, “Some images in this message are not shown.” will display. Select the link, “Add to Safe Senders list.”
In the preview pane for an opened email message in AOL Mail, select the sender’s From name under the email’s subject line and select “Add Contact” from the drop-down menu:
