To “white list” an email sender means you are telling your email application (like gmail, hotmail, outlook, verizon, comcast or any other) that you want to accept email from that address;  you do not want it identified as spam.

  1. Log in to your email account or open your email “client” (program – like Gmail, Outlook,, Comcast or others.)
  2. Find your address book, list of contacts or addresses. (Using Mac OS X click on Mail > Preferences > Rules > Add Rule)
  3. Look for the word ADD, or a + sign.

    (optional) First Name:  APHA
    (optional) Last Name:  Member Services
    Then this APHA email address: 
    Then click on SAVE.
  4. Repeat for the following addresses – all of which we use for APHA:
  5. A shortcut to make it easier:  if you use a *  with the domain then it will accept email from any of the email addresses used in that domain.
