Add, edit, or delete a Whitelist entry in ESET Windows home products

Details

The whitelist is a list of email addresses or domains that you have designated as legitimate email contacts. Messages from these contacts will not be blocked automatically, and will be delivered successfully to your inbox. To more effectively filter spam, use the Whitelist in conjunction with the Blacklist. A blacklist is a list of specific email addresses or domains considered to be associated with spam.
