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 whitelist Scholarships.com. If they do whitelist, they'll probably ask you for some information about 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.
