AOL Mail

In the preview pane for an opened email message in AOL Mail, select the sender’s From name under the email’s subject line and select “Add Contact” from the drop-down menu:

Gmail

Getting all future emails from a sender to appear in the “Primary” tab (instead of “Promotions”, or elsewhere) is a quick, two-step process.

First of all, drag-and-drop the email message from beneath the tab it’s currently filed under, to the “Primary” tab:

Once done, a message alert will appear with, “This conversation has been moved to Primary. Do this for all future messages from [email protected]?” Select “Yes:”

Gmail on mobile devices doesn’t provide a way to prioritize messages. However, touching “Show images” then “Always show images from Sender” will ensure that images always display in the inbox:

Yahoo

When opening an email message, a “+” symbol should display next to From: and the sender’s name. Select this and an “Add to contacts” pop-up should appear. Select “Save:”

Apple Mail

Select the From, or Reply-to on an email message, and choose to “Add to Contacts” or “Add to VIPs.”

Outlook 2003 (and higher)

When opening an email from a sender, an alert at the header of the message, “Click here to download pictures…” should display. Click this and select, “Add Sender to Safe Senders list:”

Thunderbird

Open the email message. Click the blue star next to the sender’s name and address to add them to your address book.

Windows Live Mail

After opening an email message in Windows Live Desktop, an alert in the preview pane with, “Some images in this message are not shown.” will display. Select the link, “Add to Safe Senders list.”

Android

On Android devices, open the email message and touch the picture of the sender that displays before the message. Tap “Add to Contacts.”

iPhone

Select the From, or Reply-to on an email message, and choose to “Add to Contacts” or “Add to VIPs.” The advantage of “Add to VIPs” is that future emails from this sender will be added to a special VIP mailbox in iOS Mail.
