Whitelist Scholarships.com Email

In order to ensure valuable information from Scholarships.com makes it to your inbox, you can "whitelist" Scholarships.com with your ISP and/or email filters. Below are links to additional instruction on how to "whitelist" your Scholarships.com email with some of the most commonly used ISPs, email clients and email filtering software:



Gmail

There are a few ways to ensure you receive Scholarships.com emails to your Gmail account, the simplest of which is probably just marking us as "Important":

  • Log in and find a message from us.
  • Next to each message, there is a checkbox, a star and a third marker.
  • Click on the marker to the right of the star.
  • That's it! If you do not see any of our messages in your inbox, check your "Spam" folder. You may need to click "More" at the bottom of your list of folders to see it.
  • For messages from us in your "Spam" folder, you will need to check the box next to them and click "Not spam" at the top of the page and then go back to your inbox and mark them as important.

You may also do the following in addition or in place of the above:

  • Log in and click the symbol in the top right corner of the page to view your mail settings.
  • Click "Mail Settings"
  • Click on "Filters" in the top navigation.
  • Click "Create a new filter"
  • To whitelist our entire domain, type "@scholarships.com" (not including the quotation marks).
  • Click "Create filter with this search ››"
  • Check the box next to "Never send it to Spam"
  • Check the box at the bottom that reads "Also apply filter to matching conversations"
  • Click "Create Filter"

You can also ensure that Scholarships.com emails are delivered to your Inbox by adding us to your Contacts list:

  • Open the latest email you want to whitelist
  • Click the "More Options" link. (It's on the title line of the email, on the right, next to the date)
  • When the extra options are visible (just below the subject line), click the "Add sender to contacts list" link
  • Alternatively, you can just send an email to Scholarships.com and that will add us to your "Contacts" list. Even if the email you send doesn't get through, the act of sending it puts the address into your "Contacts" list.

If one of your Scholarships.com emails has been filtered into the Spam folder, you can prevent that ever happening again:

  • Click on the "Spam" link to open your "Spam" folder
  • Click on the wrongly-filtered scholarships.com email to open it
  • Click the "Not Spam" button at the top of the email (right next to "Delete Forever")

Others

Older versions of Outlook, Outlook Express, Eudora, and Netscape Mail, among others, don't provide a simple way for you to whitelist those from whom you would like to receive email. If you're using one of these email systems and you aren't getting email you value or want to make sure you continue to receive it in the future, you can do something about it.

Contact the customer service people or the postmaster at the company that provides your email or Internet connection (your ISP, or Internet Service Provider). Ask them to Scholarships.com. If they do whitelist, they'll probably ask you for some information about the us. Here's what to tell them:

  • If your ISP needs to know the domain scholarships.com is mailing from, try forwarding them one of our emails. The domain (scholarships.com) is in the "header" of every email. If that doesn't work, you'll have to contact the publisher to ask them what domain they're sending from. There might be more than one, especially if you have multiple subscriptions

If you have tried any of the above suggestions and nothing has worked, please contact us and we will assist you in any way we are able.
