Whitelisting – Never Miss Another Loan

A number of BookLending.com borrowers are not getting their book loans because the email Amazon sends to initiate the loan goes into the spam folder.  There’s an easy way to make sure this never happens to you: white-list Amazon’s email address so your email provider knows that these emails from Amazon are not spam. Even if you have received a loan email from Amazon already, your overzealous mail provider could still send the next email into the spam folder.

From the BookLending.com FAQ, here are some guides for white-listing on popular email services.

For Windows Live and MSN Hotmail users:

1. Go to the “Options” page.

2. Under the “Junk E-mail” section, click on “Safe and blocked senders”.

3. Click on “Safe senders”.

4. In the “Sender or domain to mark as safe:” field, type “@amazon.com”, and click on the “Add to list” button.

5. Do the same for “info@booklending.com”.

For Google Gmail users:

1. Click Contacts along the left side of any page.

2. Click the New Contact button in the top-left corner of the Contact Manager.

For ATT Users

If you use AT&T e-mail, then Spam Blocker is being used to automatically delete suspected unsolicited e-mail messages from reaching your mailbox. Change this by:

1. In your mail configuration options, selecting “Hold for Review” option.

2. Checking a folder in your webmail called “Screened Mail Folder.” This may not guarantee you will receive our e-mails in your inbox

3. Whitelist an e-mail that has arrived in your Inbox by:

  • Opening the email message
  • Clicking on “Save Address” link next to “From Address”
  • Checking “Add to Contacts” and clicking “Save”.

If Spam Blocker is enabled and if the e-mail message is legitimate and was screened as spam, take action by forwarding the original message as an attachment in a clean e-mail to: this-is-not-spam@worldnet.att.net.
