Setting Safe Senders List

Concordia's email filtering policy does not permit white listing of entire domains (@example.com) due to security concerns. If an email arrives from a reputable source, the message should arrive in your inbox without any issues. Sometimes, a message may get automatically marked as spam and end up in your Junk Email folder. This generally means that the message comes from a domain that is not following good emails standards, or have not maintained a positive reputation with spam listing services.

If you are expecting an email message that does not arrive in your inbox, please check you Junk Email folder to determine if it is being filtered.

If a legitimate email ends up in the Junk Email folder, you can register either the sender's email address or domain (@example.com) as a safe sender on an individual level by taking the following steps:

1. In Outlook, click on the "Junk" menu and select "Junk Email Options"
